Is there anything you would change about this book?
Change the narrator.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
Couldn't get to the end.
Would you be willing to try another one of Chris Sorensen’s performances?
Yes. If another narrator.
Do you think Raising the Floor needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Don't know I couldn't get through it.
Any additional comments?
This narrator is extremely distracting, to the point that I couldn't even concentrate on the material presented. He sounds like a robot. Every sentence is read like it is the ultimate statement of the entire book, and also ends with drawing out last word. He excessively over-articulates. Very annoying!!
Would you listen to Raising the Floor again? Why?
Yes, however, the speaker/reader was really difficult to listen to. too pathetic, so much emphasis on his own performance that it takes away from the book. Reader should not be an artist/performance but the bridge to the listener. And, automatically, you associate the reader to the author to some degree. And I cannot imagine that Andy Stern wants to be associated with this voice/reader...
What other book might you compare Raising the Floor to and why?
Post Capitalism by Paul Mason. Although coming from a very different angle there are interesting parallels.
Did Chris Sorensen do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
No. Didn't like his voice at all!
