Would you listen to Hi-Ho Silver, Anyway again? Why?

Yes, I will! It's down home. Thought provoking "folksiness". The selected narrators are wonderful to listen to.


What did you like best about this story?

These are newspaper column entries originally published in the late 1960's. They are well expressed. Timeless.


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

This group are all Valedictorian level voice actors, storytellers, narrators, Artists. Each lends a uniqueness to the stories chosen.


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

Absolutely NOT! This should be ingested in small bites. Savor the writings!!


Any additional comments?

Every once in a while I'm lucky enough to come across an Audible book that stays with me long after. This is one of them in the most positive meaning of that statement.

I strongly suggest adding "Hi-Ho Silver, Anyway: Potpourri of Delightful Columns from Wisconsin’s Favorite Journalist" to your Audible and Kindle libraries!!

If you haven't caught on by my review, this was an entertaining work. And well done!

Thanks for the opportunity to review it!

This review copy audiobook was provided by the author at no cost. Which I can only assume was voluntary on their part. I am happy to give my honest review of it. I think I'm suppose to mention how reviewing this was voluntary on my part too.

Great collection of Bill's stories!

This is a great collection of Bill's stories from when he was a journalist for the Milwaukee Journal. These stories are all about his life experiences growing up in Wisconsin. They will certainly make you laugh! I had several strange looks at work when I burst out laughing a few times at these stories. Bill is a great writer and I have enjoyed all of his books so far that he has brought to audio. Each book has some very skilled narrators as well. This one is no exception! Great audio talents in this book. I am very familiar with Joe Hempel, R. C. Bray, and David Stifel's work but all of the narrators did a great job telling Bill's stories! Certainly looking forward to hearing more of Bill's work!
