What if Tom Jones Had Been a Woman?
- Susie "I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South.""
Be sure you listen to the narrator before buying!
The performance of the narrator. I just finished listening to excellent narrators of two other audible audiobooks under which Jong's Fear of Dying, and this doesn't come even close. I stopped listening after 15 minutes. That to think the recording is over 20 hours long!
