What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
From the description I expected an education on the history of the monarchy down through the ages, focused on the underbelly not usually exposed in textbooks and the like; instead, this is an absurdly long diatribe against Charles & Camilla, with the odd bit of history thrown in.
What could Jacalynne Flax have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
This "book" is lurching and disorganised and devolves repeatedly into rants about the current Prince of Wales and his wife. The author could possibly have built an argument for her ultimate thesis, that: 1) Prince Charles and Camilla are a pair of morally bankrupt narcissists and all that differentiates them is that he has a penis, which is much over-used, and she has ambition, which he lacks utterly, and 2) this is perhaps to be expected given the history of royalty in Europe and particularly in Britain,by exploring that history,
but she fails to do so
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jacalyn Flax?
The author/narrator sounds like she is drunk throughout as much of this audiobook as I could force myself to listen to (about half). If indeed she was drunk when recording this, perhaps she would be just fine if she recorded sober and were to read something worth recording; who knows?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Royally Screwed?
I would have done just what the various publishers she sent it to did and rejected it outright.
Any additional comments?
I would demand my money back, but I am not sure how to go about it.
If you could sum up Royally Screwed in three words, what would they be?
Funny, Accurate, entertaining
What was one of the most memorable moments of Royally Screwed?
Fairies in the castle
