Hmmm.... I listened to a sample of Anna Karenina from their site, and it was pretty awful.

Mind you, part of this is my dislike of American accents reading non-American books. This is completely unreasonable, I'm sure, from your point of view! But as I was born in the UK, and have lived most of my life in Australia, my brain 'tunes in' better to British accents, I think. I don't mind US accents reading books by American authors like John Grisham, since it 'fits' perfectly (of course!). But when reading classics like ####ens, I much prefer a British accent.

I suppose that means I should prefer someone with a Russian accent reading Anna Karenina!! (But I don't think so).
