From AudioFile:

The mental image that recurs during the telling of this story is of a dark green, brown, and stony landscape. This is the continuing picture of a man gone to find peace for himself in an unprepossessing part of Scotland. While he deals with his own demons, he meets a fierce scamp called the Red Wolf. As Stanley McGeagh reads the story, his use of the Scottish accent colors any part of the landscape Morris West might have missed in his writing. McGeagh's burr is charming and certainly defines the Scottish characters, as does his Gaelic speech. But what's difficult for the listener is the dropping of each sentence ending to a depth that one cannot hear. If that's the way of the language, it should be adjusted a bit for the untrained ear.
