For crying out loud - how hard can it be to learn how to pronounce words in other languages correctly?
I lived in Hawaii for many years and I was totally disappointed at the mis-pronunciation of the Hawaiian place names in this book. Hawaiian is not that difficult. That mountain range on Oahu? It's pronounced 'Ko-O-lau'. Not 'cool-lau'. Every vowel is pronounced in Hawaiian. And that was just one example. I believe it was just laziness on the part of the narrator to not have double checked that his pronouncement was correct.
This totally detracted from the enjoyment of this book.
