Distracting narrator mispronunciation
I’m finding it INORDINATELY districting listening to this book with the narrator mispronouncing so many words. For example: “Calais” (in France) ≠ “Kuh-LAY-iss.” I’ve heard digital PDF readers do a better job. How hard is it to look up how to pronounce words you don’t know?
