It would be painful. Would I read it, absolutely... in audio form, it was horrible.
Books? Manchester's earlier completed works are superior obviously. Vol. 3 is kind of like James Belushi compared to his brother. Looks kind of similar, and there are obviously footsteps of similarity, but it just isn't the same.
Not if it were anything complex. Were it a book about baseball, absolutely. Anything more complicated dealing with the historical events and place names, and the constant cringing from mispronunciation would prevent my ears from ever working again.
No. And that is the sad part.
Next time you have a work which references history, both ancient and modern, I think it would help to have someone narrating who knows how to pronounce; "Saville Row", "Macaulay", "Boudicca" or even "Yorkshire pudding" without totally butchering the words.
Those mentioned, and a laundry list of others, made it so I couldn't concentrate on the story. And to be honest, had I known it was going to be that bad, I would never have purchased this audiobook. In fact, the only thing keeping me from demanding a refund is the respect I bear for the memory of Machester.
The worst written piece of crap I have ever read. "He is very very good looking"... that's the best she could write.
Continue writing Twilight fan-fiction... which is the extent of James's writing experience.
anybody else in drama class at her junior high.
All of them. Only a massive outbreak of dysentery would make this worse.
Seriously... this book should be read to prisoners when they refuse to cooperate.
