Вообще, у меня нет особо проблем с аудиокнигами, но эта вот просто повергла меня в шок. Я в лучшем случае, понял только половину из вот этого куска. Это мне ещё надо долго надо работать над listening, или там действительно труднопонимаемо начитано?

Obviously, I don't have problems with audiobooks listening, but this one (see link above) has completely shocked me because I've understood maybe only half of it. Is there some difficulties with speech of narrator, or I should work more for my listening skills ?

Exceptionally difficult to understand, because the characters have strong Liverpudlian accents. I understand that there is not nearly as much regional variation between accents in Russia as in the UK, despite Russia's far greater size.

However, in the UK strong regional accents are frequently not understood even by other native British English speakers. Parts of your extract were difficult for even me, and I am quite good with accents and have also been to Liverpool several times.

Don't worry, it's them, not you!

O! Thank you! In the beginning I thought I'm completely poor and what the IELTS I want if I can't even understand a common audiobook :)
