Welsh Joke

Listened to this and wish it had been read by someone who understands the Welsh language. The reader has no idea how to pronounce anything in this book correctly. Luckily most words are in English but the place names and historical people in this book need to be read properly by someone who knows the language of the books subject. It made the book barely listenable as I am Welsh and I cringed every time a word was destroyed. Worst audio book reading in Audible history.

An insult to Welsh history

To employ a narrator whose pronunciation of basic Welsh names is on a par with a Royal speaking in Geordie shows a total lack of sensitivity about the feelings of the Welsh. I can only think that the producers of this abomination mean as an insult to our country. CYMRU AM BYTH

Pronounciation massacre

Please re-record with someone who can pronounce welsh names. Even the more simple words are mispronounced.

Dry and Boring

I was taking a trip to Wales and I’m a history buff but I couldn’t get through this short book. It was written and performed in such a mechanical way.
