Great Idea, Poor Audiobook.
Sadly, I have to say the Book: The Sequel just doesn’t work in an audiobook format.
The “faux-pening” lines come so fast there is just no time to digest or enjoy them. And if you need time to think about any of the more obscure references – you just won’t be able to.
Worst of all, the two of the three clearly amateur narrators are simply atrocious. One has a speech impediment and the woman uses random and unbearable accents that undercut the wit.
Now, some of the crowd-sourced humour definitely misses the mark but there is some great satire and laughs to be had so my complaints are not with the content.
I’ll definitely pick up Book: The Sequel as a hardcopy so it can be appreciated as a coffee table book for casual perusal or a dinner-party conversation starter where I think it can really shine.
