What disappointed you about Quakeland?
Lots of hype for very little substance
Would you ever listen to anything by Kathryn Miles again?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernadette Dunne?
She was fine
Any additional comments?
Felt like I was sitting in 8th grade, watching a film about earthquakes - the kind of film the teacher puts on when he/she has better things to do and needs to keep the class occupied for an hour or so. No "earth shattering" information here, just a rehash of old facts.

I did not know much about earthquakes before listening to this book, so I found the new information very interesting. The readers voice and inflection, however, do not make this a necessarily easy listen. There is little to no variation in inflection or speed. I wasn't expecting a dramatic reading, but her cadence of speaking lulled me at times so that I had to rewind and listen again.
The information in the book is compelling, especially since I live in a region that she covers as being earthquake prone. Yet, this book was not alarmist. On the contrary, most of it just brought to my attention what to actually expect in an earthquake and how I can actually prepare for one.
Overall, I would recommend this book. If you are particular with how one reads, though, I recommend you pass up this form of the book.
