As a huge Disney World fan, I was looking forward to listening to this book. However, from the outset, the dominating factor in this book is not the story, but the aweful performance of the narrator. His voice so overwhelms my thoughts that I find myself having to rewind mutliple times to actually listen to plot after overcoming the aweful character portrayals. And the constant taking of a deep breath before each passage exists throughout.
So far, the actual story is decent, and I expect it to get better as it dives into the deeper areas of WDW, but I am seriously considering dumping the audio and buying the Kindle version. That way I can actual enjoy the story and not be sidetracked by the pitiful performance.

The story was a B-. Entertaining enough, but the bad language was unnecessary. The narration was also a B-. I think Nick Barbera did a fine job, but at times he seemed distractingly congested. Speaking of distractions...I could clearly hear the kitchen background noises if someone apparently doing the dishes about halfway through the story. And no, it wasn't part of the story. Other than that, his narration was solid and conveyed the story well. He did a pretty good job with the various character voices. Please take this as constructive criticism!
