Would you listen to American Legends: The Life of Jack Palance again? Why?
I enjoyed this audiobook thoroughly, my only objection being that I would have liked to hear more quotes from Palance. The narrator really captured the actor's famous voice perfectly, bringing him to life. Palance was a fascinating American success story, coming from a hard scrabble Pennsylvania background. Escaping a life that could have been spent in a coal mine, he became a Division 1 football player, prizefighter, and most unlikely movie star.
What did you like best about this story?
You come away from this reading with respect for the man, who retained his parents' working class values. The enthusiasm that the narrator brings to his reading, mirrors the enthusiasm and intensity that Jack Palance brought to all of his roles. Like listening to Robert Osborne on TCM, talking about the great stars of the past, listening to this narrator talking about Palance is like taking a guided tour through a fascinating life.
Have you listened to any of John McBride’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
A friend of mine had purchased "I Miss My Daddy," and found both the story and John McBride's delivery as narrator to be incredibly comforting. Based on that, I went online to find other readings by this narrator.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The structure of this audiobook makes it easy to listen all the way through, or to revisit any specific sections whenever you like. Great for traveling on your daily commute or on a summer vacation. A great "beach" listen.
Any additional comments?
If you only know Jack Palance from his one-armed pushups on the Academy Awards, you've missed out on a fascinating life story..."Believe It or Not!"
