What disappointed you about Stirring the Pot with Benjamin Franklin?
The reading is annoying, unclear and cheerful in all the wrong bits. Requires excessive concentration to understand what the narrator is reading, and for the French part, once again, the French pronunciation is dismal. Really, if you are reading a book partially set abroad, the narrator should have at least a passing ability to pronounce that language. Otherwise, you are so busy cringing that you have no idea what is being said. Dreadful, dreadful narrative. Also, the book comes with recipes. Which you cannot download. So totally useless.
What did you like best about this story?
the story is excellent. Killed by narrator and lack of downloadables.
What didn’t you like about Pam Ward’s performance?
Artificial, cheerful for no reason, unclear, bizarre pace, and terrible at pronouncing foreign words.Puts weird stress in random words, as if this was some kind of romance novel. It's history, so you really wish she was less into theatrics and more into clarity.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
