Tom Sawyer very good; poor pronunciation in Prince & Pauper

4 out of 5 stars

Generally very good narration, however it seems that neither Lee Howard nor the producers can have conducted the necessary research on British proper noun and classical speech pronunciation. Prithee, Wapping, Hertford & Southwark examples of words mispronounced - nothing an audience accustomed to American English would necessarily pick up on, but one that us Brits certainly can not help but shudder at.

I suggest this title be revisited, or that additional research be done prior to the recording of subsequent titles.

Other than that - very good quality!
