The book is great; the reading is terrible!
Would you try another book from Aviva Chomsky and/or Chris Snelgrove?
Certainly by the author; not necessarily by the reader, unless it were an all-English text.
What didn’t you like about Chris Snelgrove’s performance?
Snelgrove unfortunately butchers most of the Spanish and French-language names and phrases in the book. With so many references to Cuban words, phrases, and historical personae, it seems it would have been worth the time to learn to pronounce them. This mispronunciation (sometimes drastic mispronunciation) takes away from the listening experience.
