    "FILM SOUNDTRACK - DOES NOT WORK AS AN AUDIOBOOK"
    What disappointed you about Prisoners of War?

    Not being able to understand what's being said. Some of the Australian accents are just too thick. I thought it would be one narrator reading the first-hand accounts of the war.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I didn't get that far. I gave up after 30 minutes.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This is the soundtrack of a documentary film. It doesn't work as an audiobook. The survivors' accents are hard to understand. Then some are speaking over sound effects of bombing and shooting - maybe from an underlying film segment - and that only makes it all worse.
