James Riordan thinks that eighty four is a pretty fine number. It’s round, for one thing. It’s made up of what should be a lucky seven of dozens, for another. And he’s had time to get used to it, since it doesn’t look like he’s going to get around to eighty five.

The narrator is really good, but his Jamaican accent sounds Transylvanian! I almost turned it off at that point.

B.J. Harrison is an incredible narrator, and I think he did a fantastic job, even with the incredibly difficult Jamaican accent. I'd also like to remind everyone of our One Rule. That comment is skirting the One Rule, but I am not sure it is in violation so just a gentle reminder.

I don't see how that was disrespectful. I said the narrator was really good. He did about 10 different accents perfectly, but my opinion was that the Jamaican one was not, and sounded like it was from Transylvania. Unfortunately, it was the first one in the story. I would assume Mr. Harrison would appreciate the feedback, but if this was hurtful to him, I apologize.
