Now what was the name of that ship again?

Would you listen to The Battle of the Falkland Islands again? Why?

Yes, it is a fascinating and emotional story; bravery mixed with tragedy for both sides

Would you be willing to try another one of Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot’s performances?

Yes but only if he brushes up on his pronunciation of non-English words, especially ship names!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

This guy will make your ears hurt

Absolutely atrocious pronunciation, ruined a great story. Surely if you are paid to narrate a book, you should complete some research.

Very Poor Pronunciation and Narration Throughout

What disappointed you about The Battle of the Falkland Islands?

The reader was very, very weak. He had no ability to pronounce anything "foreign".

Has The Battle of the Falkland Islands turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I have listened to many good recordings.

What didn’t you like about Felbrigg Napoleon Herriot’s performance?

Nothing...nuffin'. Is he kidding?

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

A slow groan

Any additional comments?

Don't buy. Remove from Audio library.

Good

Good story of naval war in wwi. The reader is a bit high pitched but it is worth a listen.
