Great Biographies

Very interesting facts that I didn't know! I have learned a lot and find biographies so intriguing since they're real stories.

Poorly written, poorly performed

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am not sure who would enjoy this book. At times I thought I was not listening to a real person read. The narrator sounded very stiff and mechanical much of the time. Each biography was oversimplified and ended up being a list of accomplishments with very few details to enrich the story. I realize this had to happen to an extent, with such short biographies, but I didn't feel like the author at all captured the personalities or the minds of these great men. There were also grammar errors in the writing. That is a real distraction and a big turn off to me.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

How could the performance have been better?

Different narrator, more depth in the biographies, even if they had to be longer.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Biography: 10 Biographies and Memoirs?

I wouldn't have cut any scenes, but would have rewritten many, to include at least one well-developed scene in each biography.

Any additional comments?

Save your money. Get a longer, proven biography on the person you really want to learn about.

Great read

loved the short stories with very interesting facts. Was happy with the selection of chapters, each chapter was something different about a new person.

10 x 30min chunks

Brilliant 30min historical polyfillers. Even as a break from other books if you become saturated.
