Those few mispronouciations and a dodgy Irish accent fade into insignificance when listening to Terra's retelling of The Black Moth. She reads beautifully and I am surprised that this is the first four star rating.

A good story. And I too found Terra's reading to be delightful, she does have a good clear voice and it is a pleasure to listen to her.

Reader is a good storyteller, but she has a great deal of trouble with pronunciation, both in American and British English.

A perennial favourite but how annoying to hear so many names mispronounced!
