I listened to the first 3 hours, but wasn't enjoying it. I tried to listen to more just because I had paid for it and then realized that was just stupid when it felt like drudgery.
What made the experience of listening to A Bright and Guilty Place the most enjoyable?
This is a side of L.A. that I had never heard of before. I remember hearing that it had been very corrupt in the 20s and 30s but not to this extent. It was totally fascinating to read about the history of the city and its people. Amazing what went on in the town. I love
history and really enjoyed this book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Bright and Guilty Place?
When 'the' murder was committed. I was actually very surprised at the about total about face of the person involved. Money is corrupting no matter what.
Have you listened to any of Brett Barry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Have not heard this person before but I was pleased with his performance. I much prefer male narrators. I feel they do a better job than women in narrating audio books. It is a factor for me as to whether I will purchase a book.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes I wish I could have listened to it all at once as I really had to tear myself away from it to get anything else done. That is how I know it was a great book!
Any additional comments?
I had no idea that oil had been such a huge thing in Cal. and the money involved was incredible when you think that they paid very little taxes in those days. The house built by the oil tycoon for his son and daughter in law was beyond belief both in extravagance and cost. It actually surpasses anything that today's billionaires have done.
