What disappointed you about The Drifters?
The robotic narrator somehow managed to suck all the life and romance out of this Michener masterpiece. If there is any literary justice in this world, somebody at Audible will junk this recording and record it all again with a new narrator.
How could the performance have been better?
Any other narrator would have done a better job. This guy is terrible. At times I'm not sure whether the narrator is a human or a computer. And he reads too slow. I tried speeding up the playback, but that just made his robotic intonations sound worse.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment that after waiting so long for Michener to be available, the performance could be so bad.
Any additional comments?
Please, please, please junk this recording and produce a new recording with a new narrator.

What did you like best about The Drifters? What did you like least?
Interesting but not Michener's best.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Narrator slow, toneless, like a robot. Didn't make it interesting.
