Would you listen to She Weeps Each Time You're Born again? Why?
Yes, parts of it.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The story was perfect.
What three words best describe Lulu Lam’s performance?
Good, her voice is very soothing. Authentic, she actually pronounced some Vietnamese words correctly.
Any additional comments?
I applaud audible for hiring someone capable of pronouncing Vietnamese words for this very important ground-breaking book. I just wish the narrator was consistent with pronouncing ALL of the Vietnamese words correctly. I'm not sure why she choose to pronounce some correctly and then others not - in particular the characters names...Why not pronounce those correctly? And names of important places. But it wasn't just the Vietnamese characters but American people that are famous in history whose correct pronunciation of their name should be common - ie Robert McNamara. For a listener - especially Vietnamese ones - it bugged me when Vietnamese names, titles, cities, etc. were mispronounced. Otherwise the Narrator was very good and I believe she can become excellent if she put just a bit more effort into getting the correct pronunciations for Vietnamese words when narrating a Vietnamese book.
