Disappointing Narration

This is a great story, hampered by poor narration. I almost stopped listening and asked for my money back. Fortunately, it got better after the first few chapters.

The first few chapters sounded like they were speeded up and the narrator was using cartoon voices. Maj. Wallace sounds like a chipmunk, and the women’s voices sound like an effeminate man. It got reasonably bearable in later chapters, but I still cringed when he did a woman’s voice. The voices and accents were inconsistent, so it was hard to tell who was talking.

Being nit picky, he pronounced SIGABA differently than in the 10 previous books that used that radio transmitter/ receiver. The editor should have caught that.

I’m anxiously awaiting the digital copy from the library so I can get the bad taste out my ears!

Excellent drama great pseudo historical fiction

In the WEB universe this continues the cliffhanging storyline of Heroic characters post WW2 in Europe and leading up to Korean conflict.

Don't waste your money!!!

What would have made Death at Nuremberg better?

If it had actually been written by Griffin/Butterworth!! The wonderful books of the past, from this author, gave me countless hours of enjoyment. Some student hacked this together.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Bujold

What didn’t you like about Alexander Cendese’s performance?

All he had to work with was a character talking to himself. Boring.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None

Any additional comments?

I won't make this mistake again.

Horrible Narration!

What didn’t you like about Alexander Cendese’s performance?

Had I not been a huge fan of this author and his son's stories and writing style, Mr. Cendese's narration would have made me ask for a refund! When he sticks with staright narration, he is just as good as many but his character voices are badly flawed. Every female character speaks with a lisp and many of the male characters are indistinguishable. His narration reminded me of a poor impersonation of the great Mel Blanc doing Sylvester the Cat and Tweety Bird. "I thought I saw a puddy cat....I did...I did!"
