Would you consider the audio edition of Scientology: Abuse at the Top to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version. Although I'm not sure that this book differs much from the written text.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The book is told in 1st person so you follow her experiences.
What three words best describe Danielle Plaso’s voice?
Milena Markovna Kunis
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I follow the LRH legend like some people follow "Dexter" (and I follow him for the same reasons). This, like the Jenna Miscavige book follows a specific slice of time describing experiences of the author. If you want a fantastic overview look for Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief. But if, like me, you want to drill down into experiences in the SO check out this one and Jenna's book.
Any additional comments?
The reader seems to have some difficulty with reading the text...maybe it's just under rehearsed. But lots of amateur emphasis, rhythm and pronunciation inconsistency.

Although I appreciate the inside information and the details of the struggles Amy Scobee went through and I really did want to enjoy this book, I could not get past the narrator. She actually mispronounced 'corps' as 'corpse'! She butchered the English language repeatedly and her phrasing was off by a mile. She also made everything sarcastic - I mean everything. It became very hard to listen to since I started to listen for mistakes instead of getting lost in the book.

This book was chapter after chapter of boring monologue, I listened to four chapters & returned it, the book had no dept whatever, it seemed to me the author was cashing in on being an x member of this cult. Don't waste your money, there are far better, interesting & informative books on this subject available on audible.
