What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
It is, not, about the fire. It is, at best, a documentary about how the death of six firefighters affected their relatives. I would be more interested if they spent less time on 'character development' more about the fire. Either way, I don't see any potential for this book to became a "4 or 5-star listening experience' for me. Since it was a documentary, more of a description of the building before the fire would have been nice. Instead we get 'rooms.' The "documentary" is incomplete because the book failed to say what the outcome was for the arsonists.
Would you ever listen to anything by Sean Flynn again?
The narration was fine.
Any additional comments?
I get this book expecting it to be about firefighting and experiences. Not about the survivors. Not that the survivors don't have a story, they do, but that's not what this book was described as being about. I was particularly interested in this fire.
The writing was sloppy. It's probably not accurate to say that everyone who made calls to the survivor's families said, "There's a really big fire." Poor research or lack of knowledge: crampons are on your feet, you don't hang from them. There is no relation between firefighting and rock climbing. It isn't even analogous.
