I am deeply disappointed that the narrator (Laural Merlington) makes some major pronunciation gaffes in the first 30 mins of the book. She pronounces Saudi Arabia "Saudi-a Arabia" like it rhymes, and then proceeded to name a Mexican restaurant "Polo Loco" instead of "Pollo" where the "L" is supposed to be pronounced like a "y". She clearly knows only the English language and has poor geographic knowledge. It is ironic that she smears the credibility of this book with her atrocious pronunciation. Also, she hesitates inexplicably ahead of really simple sentence transitions and words and generally talks slowly like she's addressing a slow audience.
I haven't heard past the first 60 mins, but I was compelled to beg whoever is reading this to please change the narrator or give her a lesson in pronunciation.

I keep trying to get through this book but the narrator's voice and way of speaking is not right for this book. When she comes across a word or name in Arabic, she butchers it. I can't explain it, but her voice is just not right.
