Learn basic pronounciation before you perform

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The book is a classic and worth the time, but the reader cannot pronounce basic words.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mysterious Stranger and Other Stories?

The thin line between good and evil, and how most evil is done by men, not devils.


Would you be willing to try another one of William Fortier???s performances?

No. He can't pronounce basic words. He should spend time with a good pronouncing dictionary before trying to read a book.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction was mostly pique at the reader, and trying to guess what word he *really* meant.


Any additional comments?

Any Twain is good, but I'd try a different reader.
