Factual story spoilt by Narrator
What made the experience of listening to Tour of Flanders the most enjoyable?
Being an active Cyclist I enjoy cycling books which cover a lot of the history and facts behind classic races such as the Ronde. This book, in the same fashion as others by the same author, gives you a full history with lots of surrounding facts and information. However I found this book spoilt by the Narration, the narrator has a very odd fashion of enunciation, but his trying to mimic the accents of people's comments within the text make some sections almost inaudible.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
Narration was terrible, the American accent really struggles with some simple English pronunciations and his attempts to mimic the accents of different people makes whole sections inaudible.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
Change the narrator to one of a neutral accent and remove the attempts to try and replicate the accents of contributor's text. It is a book, not an comedy mimic tv show.
