    Overall

    This is neither a joke nor an exaggeration: I am less than two minutes into this audiobook, and the narrator has mispronounced three basic English words: furtive, stolidly, and direst. I have deleted it from iTunes and will read it instead.

    Here is the famous Carnegie formula for money-making, based upon the Thirteen Proven Steps to Riches. It was organized through 25 years of research, in collaboration with more than 500 distinguished men of great wealth, who proved by their own achievements that this philosophy is practical.

    "Too Many Narration Errors"
    Overall

    I am less than twenty minutes into this recording, and the narrator has already mispronounced simple words like preface and clergyman. Really?

  • The Anglo Files: A Field Guide to the British

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 53 mins)

    Story
    (76)

    Sarah Lyall, a reporter for the New York Times, moved to London in the mid-1990s and soon became known for her amusing and incisive dispatches on her adopted country. As she came to terms with its eccentric inhabitants, she found that she had a ringside seat at a singular transitional era in British life.

    A User says: "An American in the U.K."
    "Good Book; Amateurish Narration"
    Overall

    The book is a witty, intelligent, insightful and very interesting take on the English. The narration is shockingly amateurish. The book dwells at length on the importance of correct pronunciation among certain classes in Britain, and yet the narrator mispronounces numerous words from Leonid (as in Brezhnev) to Glyndebourne. The combination of her borderline-arrogant tone with these embarrassing gaffes makes the book itself seem less intelligent than it really is.
