Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would love to recommend this book but the narrators inability to property pronounce a majority of the main character's names is insulting to the audience. For anyone who is even remotely familiar with sports or the NFL this should never be an issue. The author/publisher must have found one of the few people who cannot properly pronounce Paul Hornung's name. It is so distracting from the storyline that it is nearly impossible to enjoy the content of the book. I understand audiobooks are a newer technology but it is insanity how not one person caught this throughout what I'm guessing is multiple steps in the audio process before this is release.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Clouds over the Goalpost?
The narrators inability to properly pronounce multiple names.
What didn’t you like about Noah Michael Levine’s performance?
He has clearly never followed, researched, inquired, prepared for his job in pronouncing names of relatively famous athletes. For someone who's job it is to properly read/pronounce names/places/things this should be the first thing Noah should prepare for. Also, a terrible job by any editor to not stop Noah and give him the proper pronunciation of multiple names.
Could you see Clouds over the Goalpost being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
If someone is going to produce/narrate a sports book; please get one person who has an ounce of sports background. It is insulting to the readers who have an interest in these items.
The reader used a few unusual name pronunciations. The story was really enjoyable and informative, providing much insight into the pro-football mind.
