Bummer for the Cats...
Would you try another book from The Weather Channel and/or Jim Cantore?
Weather Channel snippets can be a nice break from listening to other more serious or involved audiobooks. This one, however, rankled. Everything was geared towards "that one special animal" that people had. Other animals beware. 'Cause if ya don't survive? Nobody's paying attention. This is 1.5 stars rounded up.
Would you ever listen to anything by The Weather Channel again?
I can only listen to these, as I said, when I have "audio-fatigue." But .95 and less-than-21-minutes of listening time can sometimes be a motivator for me. What can I say? I'm scatterbrained that way.
What three words best describe Jim Cantore’s performance?
Urgent, dramatic, anchorman
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Storm Stories?
Why even mention that people have cats or other dogs if one finds that, ultimately, they don't survive, aren't reunited with their families, and that families really don't give a rat's patoot as long as they get their "favorites" back? Very disheartening. Plus, punctuating (for what? drama?) the soundtrack with a "Woof!" or a "Meow!" causes the giggles. My favorite was, "Some animals didn't want to be caught: 'Meow.'"
Any additional comments?
Note: Anything having to do with animals automatically makes me feel guilty about giving a one-star rating. That's my disclosure.And how can I begrudge a .95 price tag and 21 minutes of my life? Well, I kind of do with this one. I could've been listening to... anything else...
