I couldn't finish this work due to the narration.

Would you try another book from John Alexander Gunn and Sofia Pisou and/or Carrie Steele?

No. The narration is robotic, full of odd pauses, mispronunciations, and outright errors. The narrator had enough trouble with the English, but clearly had no facility with French, which is a major failing given the subject of the book.

What was most disappointing about John Alexander Gunn and Sofia Pisou ’s story?

The narration ruined the narrative.
