Terrible Narration


(0.5 stars)

The narrator was terrible: she doesn't seem to know how to pronounce words in English. This book also has quite a few French words in it, which were butchered beyond all recognition. She probably should have started with a much easier book that was only in English and with shorter words that she could actually pronounce. Listening to this was like listening to somebody with a mouthful of marbles who had only seen English written and never heard it. She also seemed to be doing some kind of ASMR thing by basically whispering the entire book with a microphone inside her mouth.
