WTF?! What the French

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Graham Halstead

Contemporary Culture • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Graham Halstead gives a top-notch performance of this entertaining and comprehensive commentary on the cultural, social, and political quirks of the French. Halstead’s dry delivery and subtle intonation deftly infuse a delicate balance of irony and seriousness into a myriad of observations including how the French language has been dumbed down and why the French judicial system is considered a “sick joke.” Halstead’s authentic French accent sprinkles cheekiness into the section titled “How to Be French” and playfully conveys the sexy translations of English film titles and the discussion of how the French love of food permeates their verbal expressions. The nuances of French idiosyncrasies sparkle in this lively listening experience. M.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2016]
