Nice voice but atrocious French pronunciation

While I make it a point to listen in and make sure I enjoy the narrator, this time the sample did not prepare me. The narrator sadly has no concept of French pronunciation and since the story deals with the massacre of Ft. Henry and the French troops and their leaders feature in it, at least the basics would be necessary to make this enjoyable. I have no doubt that the narrator would be great with other stories, but foreign languages are not his forté and I do not recommend this recording. The voice of the Scotsman got better as the story progressed, but the French.... imagine Pepe Le Pew reading it :(
The story is a classic and a masterfully spun tale, but I do recommend you look for a different recording.

Great Narration

The narrator does a great job! The take has some implausibility to the modern listener, but still a very masterful one.
