Simply atrocious pronunciation errors
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Has The Gentleman Devil turned you off from other books in this genre?
No. It's turned me off this narrator until he's learned better pronunciation, though.
What didn’t you like about Patrick Oniyelu’s performance?
The narrator has taken no care to learn the correct pronunciation of many words in this book. From enduring the mispronunciation of the River Thames, to common words like devour, seance and a simple word like stomach being pronounced stomatch, I just don't know where to start.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Indifference or annoyance over the reading of it.
Any additional comments?
Did the audiobook company even listen to the audio recording? Seriously, there are so many fantastic narrators out there (you don't even have to be as fabulous as Kobna Holdbrook Smith or Jim Dale!) how could they let this poor man embarrass himself with these mispronunciations of common British English words?!
