Private India

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Sad to say it was all about the delivery - the narration....

What other book might you compare Private India to, and why?

It's a typical James Patterson book - and I love JP's books, pretty much all of the Adult ones. Only read/listened to the Confession series of YA.

What didn’t you like about Amerjit Deu and Raj Ghatak ’s performance?

It was quite difficult to understand who was which character and the American Jack definitely didn't sound American!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed to be honest, first time with an Audio book

Any additional comments?

Story is good, it's just the guys reading it - I am sorry to say.

Terrible reading

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I like the story and I like the author but the acting / reading was absolutely appalling. an 8 year old child reading out loud for the first time would have done a better job

What was most disappointing about James Patterson’s story?

Could not get into the story as the reading made it too difficult to get into it. Shocking performance. I had to stop after an hour and put the book donw - shame as I have read all the other Private series.

How could the performance have been better?

get another reader, anyone really - I get a lot of audio books and have not realised up until now how important the quality of the reader is to the story

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger at such low quality due diligence and vetting process of the reading performance

Any additional comments?

More quality control when choosing your readers!
