Couldn't Finish It

I know that this doesn't bug everyone, but the lazy-sounding, tongue-knotted attempt at American accents by English narrator Nicky Henson were an enormous turn-off. Why not just read the book and not try to act it, especially if you don't have the acting chops to pull off the common accent you're trying for? If the publisher really needed an American accent, they should have gone with an American narrator.

I found the narration highly annoying and can't go back to this (unfinished) book.

The stories themselves held much promise.
