A Look into...nothing

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

If you are looking for insight into various artists and the music industry, you'll still be searching after 20-plus hours of drivel

Has The Soundtrack of My Life turned you off from other books in this genre?

no

Would you listen to another book narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris and Clive Davis ?

no

Did The Soundtrack of My Life inspire you to do anything?

no

Any additional comments?

Hi, I'm Clive Davis. I never made a mistake, and people who failed would have been successful had they listened to me. People who were successful, would have been more successful had they listened to me.

Despressing and a Slow Listen

What did you like best about 77 Days in September? What did you like least?

The premise for the story, devastation caused by an EMP, was great, and I listened to the first couple chapters with great anticipation for ensuing elements which never were delivered.

What was most disappointing about Ray Gorham’s story?

Rather than develop a story on the after-effects of the atmospheric nuclear explosion, the author chose to focus on a single person in pursuit of his family in an unrealistic walk across the country. Would have liked to have known what was happening on the government level, who our allies might be in that situation, how the rest of the world might respond to the incident, etc.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Joseph Morton?

The narrator was slow and mundane. Monotone. Maybe he was cast for the job because of the dour nature of the book itself.

Could you see 77 Days in September being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Oh no. Too depressing for the reality-show mentality of today's audiences.

Samuel L Jackson is Classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend to anyone with or without kids. We all were kids at one point, trying to connive our way into staying up later than our parents wanted us to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Go the F--k to Sleep?

"You know where you can go? The ... to sleep."

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Ummm, it's 6 minutes.
