Occasional Cringe

While the narrator had a bright voice and enunciated well, it was his pronunciation of certain words that made me cringe. I think it would have been a good idea to find out how certain winds are pronounced before doing the narration. Petit Verdot, for instance.

That said, the book is great for beginners I think.

awful

Mispronounced many many words: Petit Ver-DOTT?? Chateau da-quem?? LeFIGHT?? Some "facts" weren't correct or only partly correct with no qualification.
