Love the book, and Slattery is astonishing, yet a couple misreadings sneak through showing there is no review mechanism at Audible.
Is Putrefaction pronounced putrefication?
Is Liquefaction pronounced liquification?
Is Anesthetized pronounced anesthesize?
Is Calvary pronounced cavalry?
Is Apothecary pronounced apocathary?
I'm pretty sure Reuters isn't pronounced rooters.
Is Assimilated pronounced assimulated?
It seems if you are going to hire dyslexics as professional readers, you might consider establishing some kind of review process, no?
And footnotes? These are to be entirely ignored? There are extensive footnotes every few pages, which have been entirely omitted in the Audible version.
I tried hard to get past the poor diction, knowing that pronouncing -ing as -een is a pet peeve of mine, but when glutinous is marred as gluttonous, I was done with the audio. It seems there is no review process in these Audible recordings. Something I also find odd is that these are coming from some pre-publication manuscript; funny little changes that turn up in the final cut.
Weird. This lack of oversight will likely drive me away.
