Not as good as it could have been
I love the Donnie Brasco movie and I've been wanting to read this memoir for quite some time. I wish he had hired a writer to help him with this memoir because this story has so much potential to be incredible. But it's just a memoir from a guy who isn't a writer in any way trying to communicate this incredible thing that happened. And then they let him narrate it. He's not a performer. It takes a lot of talent to perform audio books. It's not just something you do, much like writing a book takes skill.
But I will say this, I Really appreciated and enjoyed the real life audio clips between the characters in the story.
