My husband & I enjoy listening to non-fiction when we travel. We especially enjoy historical accounts. The story here is an interesting one, but I would NEVER listen to this narrator again. His voice grates. He speaks way too fast and everything is made to sound exciting and over the top. Not our cup of tea.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Performed by an audiobook professional.
What did you like best about this story?
Fascinating little-known slice of history.
How could the performance have been better?
It's hard to believe that the narrator is one of the authors. He reads like a quasi-literate seventh grader, with confusing pauses and all the wrong inflections. His accent is grating and incompatible with the subject matter. Impossible to get through. The delivery significantly affects the listener's ability to track the narrative.
What character would you cut from Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates?
Any additional comments?
I would like my money back on this title so I can buy it in print.
