A cute story... No Godfather... but good anyway!

What did you love best about Dinner with the Don?

The bumbling "Wise Guys" who manage to screw everything up. It was like the Mafia answer to Abbott & Costello


What was one of the most memorable moments of Dinner with the Don?

When he discovers "Walt", the street clown, is the long-lost brother of the Don


Have you listened to any of Al Benelli’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've heard nearly all of Al's narrations. I'm a fan of his stuff. This is somewhere in the middle. Not his best but not as bad as some caustic reviewers would have you believe. Remember, a narrators work needs to be approved by the author, so if something sounds misplaced to you... apparently the author didn't think so.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I'm not sure... but I did anyway... On a flight back from Rome... That's what audiobooks do best!


Any additional comments?

Moving to The Starlight Club next!

GREAT STORY BUT A LITTLE BIT SHORT

Would you listen to Dinner with the Don again? Why?

No, only because it was a great story, and it really didn't leave anything on the table


What was one of the most memorable moments of Dinner with the Don?

I guess when the clown is in the scene to me he was kinda a scene steal-er. Come on you cant go wrong with a racist drunk old smelly clown.


Which character – as performed by Al Benelli – was your favorite?

I guess his Don voice or his drunk clown voice, but i really didn't like his kid or girl voices. I will say he tried tho which is awesome and helps with getting immersed in the book.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

neither honestly just a good story.


Any additional comments?

felt like this book was a little bit to short
