Great book and a great narrator.

Would you consider the audio edition of Rocking Horse - A Personal Biography of Betty Hutton to be better than the print version?

Absolutely. The opportunity to hear Kathy Garver interpret the words in a stellar reading is too good to miss. A book (either e or paper) could never compare.

What other book might you compare Rocking Horse - A Personal Biography of Betty Hutton to and why?

There is no comparison. this book and the performance behind it render all other biographies irrelevant.

What does Kathy Garver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her read is excellent. Every word crisp and clear. I am hearing impaired and frequently have difficulty with audio books. Not in this case. I would listen to Kathy Garver read the downtown Manhattan telephone directory. (It's not available, is it?)

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I both laughed and cried. Frequently at the same time.

Any additional comments?

Rocking Horse was a delightful listening experience and I would recommend this audio book to anyone and everyone.
