Really awful narrator

I bought this one on accident because for some reason the kindle app chose this for whisper sync. It's atrocious and I'll be returning it. I don't know how they weaseled into the Whisper Sync suggestions, but it's as obnoxious as Flo Gibson.

Why an American Narrator

This is an astonishingly detailed account of how Lononers responded to the mid 17th Century outbreak of the plague. It is spoiled by having a narrator who is unfamiliar with London an London spelling and pronunciation, thus we have horrors such as South Wark for Sotherk (Southwark) or 'eyeslington or Islington.

Awful pronunciation of London boroughs

Why oh why would you not check the pronunciation of place names?

Wherever we might live in the world, we know that the pronunciation of place names is very particular and unpredictable.

This is ruined by repeatedly hearing Southwark as South-walk and Islington as Eye-zlington.

Dreadful. I just can't listen to any more. An hour of my life I won't get back...
