Overly academic, stilted language
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If the book was written in fresh, engaging English. It reads like the phd thesis of a pretentious cyclist.
If the reader could actually pronounce French! You would have thought that given the subject they would cast somebody who could, for this reading! Who decides who reads what?
What will your next listen be?
Something else about Cycling history
How could the performance have been better?
Reader needs to stop using a declamatory voice tone, sounds very pompous. Ease into the microphone, buddy!
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment that you can render a subject like this boring.

This would have been an interesting book. However, the narrator had an American propaganda from the 1950s newsreel type voice and absolutely mangled the French language and place names. To the extent that it was irritating and ruined the listening experience. ( I am not an American phone, I love America but this did not work)
