I wanted to learn more about Mexican history and culture...
This fit the bill very well. Reader is excellent. Great historical facts presented in a vivid narrative. Characters are a bit trite but fitting fit the time period.

Long Overdue Overview of the Nation to our South
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely because it brings a knowledge of the history (struggles, successes and people) to a nation which is hardly known to most of us, even in border states.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Mexico?
The book is chock-full of "moments" so I would have to say the details about bullfighting and how it is created brought some understanding to me of how anyone could find pleasure in watching an animal tortured and killed before a huge audience. Educational.
What does Alexander Adams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His voice intonation brought a needed variety to the many characters. If he were not so adept, the book could have been muddled and confusing.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Too many to describe.
Any additional comments?
Books by Michener are a real time-machine that carries us to places we could never go with today's technology. The color and spirit of his writing bring to life things and places that most of our imaginations could not. I am well into my next Michener book from Audible and am enjoying the journey very much.
