Publisher's Summary

Disclaimer: This book is narrated by an English speaking American narrator using the Queen's English pronunciations per author's direction.
There are the usual mundane books about regurgitated mysteries, and there are books such as Strange Mysteries which boldly delve into the more offbeat mysteries of history, as well as mysteries of crime, space, and time. Within this amazing collection of 65 mysteries you will read of the mysterious Zodiac Killer who terrorized the West Coast of the United States in the 1960s - who was he? Could a new scientific breakthrough finally unmask Zodiac? Also in Strange Mysteries, you will even be provided with a truly mind-boggling answer to that question we have all pondered from time to time - Why are we here? Read that chapter at your own risk. In this fascinating book, you will learn what might have really happened onboard the Mary Celeste, and you will read of the sinister 1945 murder of an English warlock, as well as a host of other intriguing conundrums such as the possibility of aliens on our moon, and the intriguing reports of Joan of Arc being seen long after she was supposedly burnt at the stake. This amazing book also asks: Was Adolf Hitler a Black Magician? Did Shakespeare exist? How did a Welshman who flew before the Wright Brothers become omitted from the history books? Who was the Man in the Velvet Mask? What is the shocking truth behind President Lincoln's Assassination? Who were the Atlanteans? Do Vampires exist? Can a murder repeat itself 157 years after it is committed? How can we tap into the Akashic Records? Was Jesus of Nazareth an Extraterrestrial? Whose ghost is seen being executed in an electric chair on the London underground? What mathematical method did a super gambler use to break the bank at Monte Carlo? Plus many, many more mysteries to feed your unending curiosity!

Mr Crain's mispronouncements are the best part.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Mr Crain must have never heard many of these words, cities, names, pronounced. I had to rewind several times to get Hoboken.

Has Strange Mysteries turned you off from other books in this genre?


How could the performance have been better?

I guess this needed to be proof-listened. The mispronouncements are just like misspellings.

Great Book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is an excellent book but the reader needs to improve his pronounciaton of several terms such Arimather instead of Arimithea, etc., ad naumeum. Other than these fopahs, the book is very pleasant to listen to.

What did you like best about this story?

Terrible narration

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The subject matter of the book is good and as expected. If you enjoy the areas covered then you won't be disappointment.

Any additional comments?

The narration though is terrible. Lots of really simple and obvious words just mis-pronounced but the most annoying the narrators habit of putting the inflection and pauses in the completely wrong part of sentences! It is so off putting!

It almost sounds like it's not a human reading the book but a computer "text to speech" system.
