Pulp Fiction of the day
- Sandy "Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach."
Disappointing rendition of classic Fu Manchu adven
No. The plot and story are classic Sax Rohmer Fu Manchu but the effort is spoiled by the narrator who mispronounces a number of references, even including the characters name of Petrie. The audiobook is also missing chapter references, with which every other audible book I have purchased has come with (shown by clicking on the "Chapters" button in iTunes). These chapters are a useful reference when playing an audio book in iTunes. A simple operation by the narrator in a program like Chapter and Verse would have rectified this oversight.
Love the plot, but the narration spoiled enjoyment of it
Yes, pronouncing the words properly would have significantly improved enjoyment.
