Terrible reading

What didn’t you like about David Colacci’s performance?

He makes many of the Italian characters sound as if they were trying to speak English, however, Donna Leon writes, in English admittedly, about Italians who are actually speaking their mother tongue. David Colacci appears to assume that non-Americans are too stupid to speak their own languages properly. This attitude made me so angry that I finished reading the book instead of listening to it.
