Very Imaginative Story
Would you listen to The Diamond as Big as the Ritz again? Why?
No....it was good but once was enough.
Who was your favorite character and why?
All of them
What does Jim Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I made sure I listened to the sample before getting this because a couple of people really did not like the reader but...very few people agreed with them so, I did the logical thing..listened and decided for myself. Sample sounded fine so I got it and and really enjoyed the reading. No idea why those people had such a problem with it..to each his own, I guess.
Any additional comments?
This was a very unusual story for Fitzgerald and he showed he not only can write, but that he has a fantastic imagination. Great story.

How to ruin a classic
One of the great short stories read like a high school textbook to pre-schoolers. The story is 5 stars, maybe 7, but the reading...well, it was only the quality of the story that kept me from tossing the CD out the window. The reading was like a car on bad gas, sputtering, struggling, saved only by the unstoppable momentum of the story. Read it yourself and avoid this.
