I have tried to adjust my ear to the chosen pronunciations of the reader but even after listening to 5 of the books I'm being pulled out of the story every time the home star nation of HH is mentioned to find my self screaming in frustration. Can't do it anymore. Love the books, just can't listen to them anymore.
possibly, in a few years
Honor Harrington - of course
yes - but that was the way I read the print book.
The reader's pronunciation was so different on many words than the way I read them in the book that it continually pulled me away from the story to try to figure out what she was saying. It has now (after the previous two books) gotten so I can almost ignore my irritation, but not completely. Every time she says man-TIC-o-ran it drives me up a wall. I hope I can begin to not hear it in the later books for I'll probably listen to at least the first ten books in the series.
I have not read the print version, but I think I would have skipped those parts that I found tedious to listen - which would have made the reading experience more enjoyable
The small town Chief of Detectives
Not bad - good voice acting, good story though dated, interesting characters. But I found there to be many descriptive passages that, if reading, would have skipped, but listening I found tedious and repetitive.
