The story is wonderfully complex and absorbing, however this production was ruined by the reader, who did not know how to pronounce the word "ensign". You know, the military rank ENSIGN. This reader pronounced it "IN-SINE".
Really? This is a professional audio book reader? What a shame. Don't buy this audiobook, just buy the paper or e-book version and save yourself from having to hear "in-sine" over and over again.
Pronouncing basic English words correctly.
Yes. I wanted to reach into my ipod and poke the reader in the eyes every time he pronounced the word "ensign" wrong.
The reader did not know how to pronounce the word "ensign". It's *not* pronounced "IN-SINE". You'd think a putative professional audiobook reader would know how to pronounce words.
The reader's pace is maddeningly slow, and she is the only reader who I've ever heard interpret Nanny Ogg as a doddering old lady with a quavering voice, a strange choice to say the least. We stopped listening to the story about 1/4 in and read the book instead.
