If you could sum up Never Argue with a Dead Person in three words, what would they be?
I've seen Thomas John during large group readings and what he does definitely impresses. I'll remain skeptical, while still hopeful that there isn't some trickery going on. He definitely has come up with facts that people confirm with great emotion, things that one would not find on the internet. Therefore, it was fun to listen to his story and other stories based on his experiences and past readings.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I believe this narrator is the same person who narrated children's stories that I used to listen to in the car with my kids. He attempts to transform adults into cartoon-like voices. Women all come off as bimbos and he uses a falsetto that is insulting. In fact, nearly all of his female characterizations seem to indicate that either he, or the author, think that women are profoundly idiotic. I found myself wanting to hear the material but was so angered by the narration that I could hardly stand to listen a moment longer. Bad choice. The book might be great, but the narration completely kills it.

It's was hard to listen to this narrator. He certainly was enthusiastic, but more fitting for a children's book. His impersonation of a woman's voice was grating. Of course, he possibly was trying to make up for the lackluster story and figured sounding like Cinderella's evil step-sisters in unison couldn't hurt. I didn't make it past the fourth chapter and only because I don't give up easily.
