Incompetent Foreign Pronunciation
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I never finish listening to, much less recommend, books in which the narrator has not taken the time to learn to pronounce foreign words correctly.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Banks?
Banks is a good reader/actor, but Like so many narrators, he didn't study the pronunciation of foreign words, in this case Italian. It really detracts from the listening experience to hear names of places and major characters mispronounced. What would it take for the producer to require that a narrator work with an accent and pronunciation coach for a day?
Was How to Be Both worth the listening time?
See comments above.
