    Story
    "Couldn't Listen to It"

    The reader's speaking cadence was so distracting that my wife could only finish 1.5 chapters. Really wanted to hear this story but couldn't focus. Going to try to get our credit back when we return from our trip. Three star story rating is only because this rating app would not allow me to leave it blank.

    Story
    "Easily the worst narration I have heard on an Audible book."

    Narrator sounds like a robot, I cannot listen to this. Mispronounces things left and right, annoying monotone, doesn't seem to know where commas are. Book might be well written but it is impossible to listen to with this reader.

    Story
    "Some People Should not Narrate Books"
    Would you try another book from World War 2 History Publishing and/or Glenn Langohr?

    No


    What other book might you compare Killing Patton to and why?

    I purchased this book after completing Churchill's history of WWII series. I wanted to get the American view of the action. The story line was interesting and helped me struggle through the narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This audio book confirmed my suspicion that there are some people who should not narrate books. To be fair, I am probably in that group but I don't think I would be this bad. The narration is in a staccato style with no emotion and continuous pauses in awkward places. Almost all words with more than three syllables are mispronounced.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I did not think I would ever want to return a book for a refund, but now I do.

    Story
    "Interesting story; terrible production"

    The book certainly tells more about Patton than does O'Reilly's book. It's told as if written by a wartime correspondent with some interesting insights. There are also far too many unsupported conclusions. I have not read many other books about Patton so I don't know either this book's accuracy or level of scholarship. Unfortunately it suffers from a typical journalist's superficiality.

    The narration is the worst I have heard on audible.com. The narrator's phrasing is terrible. He mispronounces an incredible number of words. The narration is so bad that it is distracting from the story. Read the book if the story interests you. Do not bother to listen to the recording.

    Story
    "A Very Poor Reader"

    I cannot recommend this book. The narrator was so very poor; he had trouble even pronouncing words. It was terrible.
