24 - book 6, chapter 1 the reader is VERY difficult to understand and VERY difficult to listen to... I appreciate her effort. But, her reading is very unpleasant.

Book 5, chp. 3. I don't know why, but some readers make audio books very difficult to listen to. If the person is not a native speaker and/or speaks the Kings English with a heavy accent I don't think they should record in another language, but only in their own. I felt like I was listening to a first grader when I heard this chapter.
