This is the most horrific reading of a non-fiction work on Middle Eastern affairs I've yet encountered. Other works (Fiasco, The Looming Towers, etc.) do at least a reasonable stab at pronouncing Middle Eastern terms. But this audio book is intolerable. Starting with the author's name, and then moving on to nearly every place name and proper name, the narrator mispronounces everything, making listening to this production impossible. I'm not expecting native Israeli pronunciation, but I am expecting that the producer and the narrator would make some good faith effort to get the pronunciations in the approximate ballpark. Is there a way to seek out a return amd refund from audible? I'd do it in a second. What a thoroughly unprofessional production!
