Fantastic!!!!

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

"HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE" was great! I think Stephen Fry is probably the best narrator.

Vast sections copied from another book!

What would have made The Katyn Forest Massacre better?

By writing fresh content about the subject of the book. Instead whole sections have been copied word by word from the book the Invasion of Poland. Poor show!

What was most disappointing about Charles River Editors’s story?

Mostly filler from another book on a related but different subject.

What didn’t you like about Scott Clem’s performance?

The narration was fine.

Dreadful fake 'German' accents

What disappointed you about Devil's Battalion: Himmler's Gold?

The book itself is fine. However the audio version is spoilt by a reader who appears to have little or no knowledge of the German language. He speaks English while trying to sound German. It doesn't work.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The story was as expected. Not great literature but enjoyable nonetheless.

What didn’t you like about Neal Vickers’s performance?

The inability to sound German when delivering lines spoken by German characters. English with a dreadfully fake German accent. It would have been much better had he just stuck to a standard reading in English. No 'acting' German.

Dull, almost monotone reading

Would you try another book written by Daniel Defoe or narrated by Alan Munro?

The book is great, but it is spoilt by a dull reader. I will certainly not buy anything read by this narrator again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Robinson Crusoe?

Lots. It is a super book.

How could the performance have been better?

Having it read by someone with more life in his voice.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

A different narrator would bring the book to life.
