Good narration, but hard to follow
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, because its more authentic to the original narrative and gives you good side info. I was required to read this, so if your into this stuff, more power to you, but for me it was hard to keep up with and kind of boring. Some of it was really funny and relatable, though.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Add a written character description list. There were to many people with similar, if not the same, names to keep straight. Plus many of them occurred in more than one of the tales. Also, I would reduce the number of narrators. Deats or Guidall, pick one.
What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?
He was informative and his voice was just as hot as always. He always reminds me of James Q. from Braun's books. Although, most of the reading was done by Deats.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The childishness of some of the characters made me laugh.
Any additional comments?
If you use this version and expect to retain a lot of the info, then get a written version as well for reference.
