Would you try another book written by Ben Pester and Dick Durham (introduction) or narrated by Matthew Waterson?
I never want to hear Watersons voice again
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Matthew Waterson?
an answering machine would be better
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
yes, the underlying story is quite good, just the narrator is tedious.
Any additional comments?
THE worst audible book in my life. And I am quite cross, as I can hear there is a good story trying to get out by the author. Imagine a story narrated by a plummy voiced bore, who can only speak in cadences like tony blair soundbites, and has no understanding of puntuation as he reads something' and it's at least twice as bad as that again. Interminable, tedious droning rubbish. Whoever chose this guy to narrate should be shot.<br/><br/>I managed halfway by gritting my teeth and screaming occasionally, it was a very long car drive, before I gave up and sang to myself for the next 3 hours. And my singing is worse than his narration.<br/><br/>I am off to buy the physical book.
not a very inspiring read, marred even further by odd pronunciation of proper names. dull
Exciting story told in an inflated style: the author would rather say "not inconsiderable " than "big".
The reader is obviously not a sailor, mispronouncing words like "leadline". He pronounces names like Batavia and the Marquesas in a way I've never before heard.
