What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Being unabridged

If you’ve listened to books by Joe McGinniss before, how does this one compare?


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christopher Reeve?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I read the book, and though it met the general qualities of the printed version, abridged versions miss so much. Especially when you know what should be there.

Any additional comments?

I would like to see more 'True Crimes' (unabridged) in your library. I'm having difficulty finding any and that's what I listen to.
