Would you consider the audio edition of Oh, Florida! to be better than the print version?
Not a reader, but a good listener.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
I wanted to see if I could learn anything new about my home state. Being a seventh generation Floridian, whose family arrived in Florida in 1774, I was pleasantly surprised by most of these facts. A lot of this information was easy to recall from what I lived and from what I had learned. It definitely gives you a detailed history of Florida.
Have you listened to any of Mike Chamberlain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No. He did a good job in a laid back style. The author seems depicted as somewhat opinionated and a bit left leaning. Some of the bad events were a bit overdone, but I could be biased.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
The one I can remember is the start of Billy Graham. I did not know that, but heard him preach on TV quite often as I grew up.
Any additional comments?
The overall story was definitely a good listen. I enjoyed reliving the past. As we grew up in Florida, we always thought California was weird. After getting to my current age, I realize we have them beat. I love Florida and I only lived out of state twice. Once for U.S. Navy technical training and once to accept my first civilian job when leaving the Navy. I always wanted to return home to family, friends and the warm climate. Florida is my home and I plan to stay.

A thoughtful mix of history and current events, the author makes a convincing argument how Florida influences the rest of the country!
