Eat, Pray, Love It's Not!!
No -- it's just turned me off from either of them!
Anybody. This man couldn't pronounce a French word correctly if his life depended on it. His articulation was silly and his reading style juvenile. What was the publisher thinking? He also has a very unpleasant ( to me) voice.
I would cut all of the descriptions of what he ate for each meal everyday, the price he paid for it, the drinks he drank with it and every other stupid detail that he endlessly bores us with. That would end in there being no book.
There was not a hint of introspection in this book or commentary on what was meaningful about what he was seeing. I kept listening only because I need to hear something while I drive and I kept wondering if it would get any better. I am sorry I spent my credit on this book --usually I love the genre and feel quite let down.
Mediocre with very poor reader
No - not much of a plot. I like anything about Paris, but this was surprisingly uninteresting.
Narrator has boring affect and terrible mispronunciation. I thought it was just his French, but his English is not very good either. He mispronounces words that anyone, especially a book reader, should be able to pronounce.
