I loved the trilogy so much I flew to England on my own tour or Oxford, The Bodleian Libraries and London. But the Narrater of this 4th book was Infuriatingly Terrible! She mis-pronounced so many wards but in particular the mis-pronouncment of Mart's name. Everytime Saskia Maarleveld mis-pronounced that wonderful character's name it felt like a step in the face and made me so furious that I nearly could not finish the book. Saskia Maarleveld, was not true to the accents or character inflections. Her performance was infuriating and frustrating. Why oh why did you not ask Jennifer Ikeda to narrate it? I really hope Deborah Harkness has this narrated version removed from history, for the sake of her fans, that loved her first Trilogy with such enrapture and devotion. I have listened to the First Trilogy so many times over and over. I will never listen to this Narrated by Saskia Maarleveld again as it puts me such a bubbling furious rage every time she gets pronunciation soo wrong it made me want to scream everytime. How could you let this be released? How could you ruin it!
