Out of Order!

The recording is on the discs out of order. I cannot believe it was released this way. The story seemed to start abruptly, and there seemed to be gaps, but I thought maybe the writing was just rough that way. When I got to disc 20, I got to hear the actual beginning of the story, and then it progressed through all the missing parts. It rather ruined the experience.

The reader has a great voice, seems to pronounce all the french names authentically, and has a large repertoire of voices, although occasionally he gets them a little mixed up.
