Bill O'Reilly "Phoned It In" - Poor Performance

What did you love best about Killing Patton?

The story was very engaging. A lot of very interesting history tidbits. Where do they get this stuff? I loved it.


Any additional comments?

I was so disappointed in Bill O'Reilly's performance. At times I wondered if he had even READ the material before. His delivery was consistently poor throughout. At times he slurred. There were mispronunciations and numerous things that just should not have passed quality control. Is there no one that has the spine to say to Bill "Hey, can we back up and take that paragraph again?"

Bill, stick with what you know!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would hire a professional reader!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Patton?

I had never heard the allegations that Wild Bill Donovan played a significant role in the death.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bill O'Reilly?

There are dozens of great, good or even adequate narrators on Audible products who would do a better job.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes


Any additional comments?

Bill O'Reilly's performance showed a lack of preparation. It was NOT a workmanlike effort, and it sometimes seemed that this was the first time O'Reilly had read this material! He made me suspect that he didn't participate much in the writing of the book other than to lend his name. He mispronounced common English words, and he hadn't a clue how to pronounce the German words and names. I was embarrassed for him!
