Reviews

Well intended advice to valued reader

(2 stars)

Vfkabt, you’re volunteerism is truly appreciated. However, your narration needs work. With all due respect it sounds to me as though you are reading chapters for the first time. The narration comes in fits and starts. Reading each chapter before you record would help you familiarize yourself with the content and make for a fluid reading. Also, all unfamiliar words and foreign phrases should automatically be checked for proper pronunciation. These suggestions apply to all readers who want to make listening a joyous experience.
