How good is Robert Glenister‘s reading of the Cormoran Strike mysteries?

His audiobook of Cuckoo’s Calling won a National Book Award before Galbraith was outed as Rowling, i.e., before anyone had heard of the series, Glenister’s reading was acknowledged by industry professionals as exceptional. And he’s only getting better, book by book. I’ve read Lethal White twice — and listened to it four times.

Hearing the various regional accents, the differences in class pronunciation, and the emotional content of the character’s voices makes such a difference in getting Cormoran Strike. I recommend Glenister’s readings without reservation.

There is one downside, however. Short and handsome Tom Burke, already a visual failure in representing Cormoran on the teevee screen, will always be an audio non-starter, too, to anyone who has heard Glenister’s Strike, the voice of a smoker, overweight, and struggling heroically with chronic pain.
