What disappointed you about The Star of Istanbul?
I couldn't get beyond the " over acting" approach used by the narrator. The intonation was just all wrong--using his voice to impart unwanted content and flavor which detracted from the prose. I have had the very same reaction to Scott Brick--so if you like Mr. Brick, you'll like Mr. Chase. This approach completely spoils the story for me.
Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Olen Butler again?
Yes with a different narrator
What didn’t you like about Ray Chase’s performance?
He quite simply destroys the best efforts of the author-- no one could read this to ones self and impart the unwanted, unwarranted, and really off putting cadence and tone of Mr. Chase. Please Mr. Chase read it straight!--save the histrionics for your next acting audition.
Any additional comments?
There should be such a thing as a narrators school.
