What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The book is excellent as a book to read but there is a problem listening to someone say "PLUS' every 20 seconds.
What was most disappointing about Tim Carroll’s story?
The narrator substitutes the word PLUS for the word AND...now the word AND is very common in English speech and writing...perhaps the script given to him denoted "and"as "+"..and he reads every damned "AND"as "PLUS"..an example is "Thanks for sending the shoes plus socks plus books plus thank Mother plus Dad......If he was reading the King and I it would come out as "The King plus I "
How could the performance have been better?
The actual reading is quite good..just this "PLUS'nonsense is so annoying one can't get into the story..
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Dodger?
I would ensure that "AND"is used instead of "PLUS"when the author surely meant to use ÄND"
Any additional comments?
I would suggest that this book be re-recorded using a director to keep an ear open.
