Nineteen Minutes for $7? Ripoff!

What would have made Life in the Ocean better?

If it were twenty to thirty times longer.

Would you ever listen to anything by Claire A. Nivola again?

No.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narration was fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Life in the Ocean?

No scenes should be cut. Many should be added.

Any additional comments?

This is the first time I felt ripped off by Audible.

Great Story!

My daughter and I loved it! The author's note was sobering. The industrial revolution is the worse thing that has happened to sealife. This stuff matters.
