It's a fun commentary on English society. Great "types." The reader's voice and accent add to the reading; mispronunciations are at a minimum.
Worth the listen.
Possibly from Kathleen MacArthur (although a bit more editing would be good), but not Darla Middlebrook.
This is my first one...
No, I was really bothered by the reading. Ms. Middlebrook sounded fine when just reading, but when she changed her voice to differentiate the different characters it was very annoying: they all sounded as if they were drowsing in an opium den or had some strange speech problem. Not good at all!
Yes, write this review to warn other listeners of the strange reading...
The information is interesting and fun, but it seems someone told this man he is being paid by the minute and he would have to get all of his information in in the fewest minutes possible... Makes me tired! As a professor he should know that he needs to slow down and make it less obvious that he's reading. Talk to us! Not at the speed of light!
The information is fun.
Too too fast and too obviously reading.
Ha ha ha -- never :-)
John Mc Whorter should listen to Dorsey Armstrong.
