Covering the stories of Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy, and Doug Gilmour, and capturing the frenzy and excitement that hasn't been seen since, the book is essential listening for hockey lovers of all ages.

Excellent Book

I thought this book was great. Such a fun listen about an excellent time for the sport I love. Listening about Gretzky, Doug Gilmour, Grant Fuhr, Mario and all the other players I grew up watching and loving was incredible. That said, the narrator had a great storytelling voice but I'm not sure he was able to pronounce one name correctly, which is really annoying.

Why Can't Narrators Pronouce Names Correctly?

If you could sum up A Season in Time in three words, what would they be?

Detailed, accurate, pronounciation


Who was your favorite character and why?

All of the players and coaches


Did Ken Maxon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes and no. The pronunciation of many player names was horrible. I'm a longtime hockey fan and am very familiar with all of the players and coaches covered in this book. Ken Maxon butchered many of the names to the point that it detracted from the presentation. I don't understand why the producers of audio books do not insist that their narrators learn how to properly pronounce names especially in sports books.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No


Any additional comments?

Overall, this is an excellent account of a great NHL season but again, names, names, names. Get them right!
