Awful rendition. Ughhh

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ransom of Red Chief?

I couldn't get past the first 5 minutes.

Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

No

Any additional comments?

There were a few things that if fixed, would have made this rendition better. The background music was incredibly distracting (should have been eliminated), the constant mispronunciation of common words, and unusual pacing. The narrator would pause where there was no comma, and stumbled over every other word.
