What did you like best about Give Sorrow Words: Maryse Holder's Letters from Mexico? What did you like least?
I have never read any writing like this before. It is a one-of-a-kind combination of solid intellectual writing and very sad ly perverse sexuality. It's not porn. It's not even erotica. But it is the most direct writing about sexual experience I have ever read. The uniqueness of this book is what I liked best. What I liked least is that the reader of this audio book is too fast, very sloppy, and continually (almost purposefully) mispronounces every Spanish word in the book. The only good thing about the reader is that she is the woman to whom the letters were actually written. Still, this is the worst read audio book I have ever heard. I bought the Kindle version just so I could finish it without having to listen to the mispronunciations and utter lack of editing and production values. It's an interesting read byut a pitiful listen.
Would you ever listen to anything by Maryse Holder again?
Don't have to worry about that since nothing else was ever published.
Would you be willing to try another one of Edith Jones Rubin’s performances?
Absolutely not. If this is an example of an educated woman's reading ability then I'll stay away at all cost. Terrible job.
