I am from the Delta and returned to the South at nearly 60, so I felt lucky to get this intelligent and constructive take on its deep flaws and equally deep virtues of the region.
The reader was good, but here-as so very often with Audiobooks, I do wonder why neither the reader nor the director bothered to pick up a phones , call a local library and learn how to pronounce the names of the places in which they purport to live. I find it sloppy and almost insulting to both listeners and the natives of whatever area or city the mispronunciation a affect. This is so common that I feel a bit uneasy about complaining of this otherwise fine rendition. But the reader did manage to mangle almost every place name he mentioned, and I found this so irritating that it bit into my pleasure and my ability to focus on the writer's words. Audible, please tell someone to pick up a phone for place names -or a dictionary in the case of unfamiliar words-so that pronunciations are correct. Aren't these people supposed to be professionals?

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Living in MS I am very familiar with this area. If you are going to narrate the book you should learn to correctly pronounce the locations. It was hard for me to finish the book after hearing all of the flaws in his performance.
Would you be willing to try another one of Shaun Grindell’s performances?
