Geezers, Young and Old Will Love This
Yes, I will! It's down home. Thought provoking "folksiness". The selected narrators are wonderful to listen to.
These are newspaper column entries originally published in the late 1960's. They are well expressed. Timeless.
This group are all Valedictorian level voice actors, storytellers, narrators, Artists. Each lends a uniqueness to the stories chosen.
Absolutely NOT! This should be ingested in small bites. Savor the writings!!
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.
