I'm glad I didn't let the comments about the narrator's French pronunciation scare me way from buying this audiobook. The narrator has a soothing and clear voice. Often his French sounds like it comes through a mouthful of marbles, and sometimes it's downright wrong. If your best French is high school level, like mine, it won't bother you much. The book itself is fun and interesting.
Important book by the author who is now an ambassador to the United Nations.
I would like to comment on the narrator. He reads crisply and does a fine job, with one glaring exception. He pronounces many people's names incorrectly. There are so many wrong pronunciations that it gets to be a bit humorous (if you don't laugh, you might give up on this fine book in frustration). I don't understand why he didn't get a script that gave the correct way to say non-English names. Still, that would not keep me from renting this great book.
