Would you consider the audio edition of Fire on the Prairie to be better than the print version?
Not a bit.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I suppose Harold Washington. It's non-fiction, and doesn't really have "characters".
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator's inability to pronounce English words correctly, and to accent syllables the way that a human being should, is so distracting that it makes it hard to absorb the (excellent) information.

What did you like best about this story?
This is a fascination story about the man and the forces involved in the first African-American mayoralty in Chicago. The comparison and contrast with Barack Obama's compaign and Presidency is most interesting.
Would you listen to another book narrated by George Orlando?
The narration flowed well and was easy to understand. It was marred, however, by myriad mispronunciations, not only of ethnic Chicago names but also of many ordinary English words.
Any additional comments?
If you care about racial politics (which is at the core of ALL American politics), this is a must-read.
