Repulsive performance - pretty much racist

The performance of this audio book made me feel sick. Why the hell did the narrator try to mimic what she thought was a Yemeni voice? It sounds like a cartoon version of an Arabic accent performed by someone who has never met a middle eastern person.

If someone did this mimicking a Chinese accent, there would be uproar.

There is a good story here of a journalist in Yemen (if narcissistic), but its horribly hard to get through. I gagged a few times when I listen to it by just how awful the performance is.

Absolutely hilarious!

Sarevok sounds like Count Dracula! I'm really enjoying just how awful this is :)

And its got a ghoul who speaks like Yoda!

And a sex-pot elf shoehorned into a horny adolescent fantasy romance who speaks in a vaguely Swedish accent. Swedish by way of Texas.

This book is the gift that keeps on giving. It's truly awful and absolutely hilarious. The audiobook version of "The Room".
