Publisher's Summary

A former American president nearly dies during an ill-planned exploration through the Brazilian Wilderness and down the River of Doubt. Theodore Roosevelt was a naturalist, explorer, author, hunter, governor, soldier and 26th President of the United States. In 1913, he joined with Brazilian explorer Candido Rondon to explore portions of Brazil and to bring back animal specimens for the American Museum of Natural History.
In this first person narrative, never before recorded as an audio book, President Theodore Roosevelt describes his expedition along rivers, which are home to deadly Piranha fish, through almost impenetrable forests filled with insects, snakes and wild animals. Roosevelt witnesses primitive Indian tribes, wary of strangers and a murder among his increasingly desperate men, before he is nearly defeated by the River of Doubt.

Poorly Narrated

What disappointed you about Through the Brazilian Wilderness?

The narration is a bit too fast. Either the script the narrator read from was not punctuated or he completely missed the periods and commas. I changed the play speed to 0.75 but that didn't help as it sounds like there is an echo in the playback.

How could the performance have been better?

Slow the narration down. Take a breath between sentences. It sounds as if the paragraphs are simply run-on sentences.

What character would you cut from Through the Brazilian Wilderness?

Andre Stojka

Any additional comments?

I'm sure the book itself is great, but Andre Stojka ruined it for me.
