Frederick Davidson reads this immensely detailed audiobook with a rich English accent. It’s as if a robed Oxford don is giving a series of lectures on the Irish potato famine and its consequences. Davidson reads the myriad English and Irish names of people and places, as well as the many complicated sentences, without a stumble. The problem with this audiobook is that its very "Englishness" would likely be difficult for many American ears to listen to for 25 hours.
