The stories are well written sporting memoirs. How ever the voice actor is flat and seems unable to correctly pronounce a number of rudimentary words.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
No. The narrator definitely speaks with emotion / passion, however he is intense ALL the time. Thus, his tone becomes a monotonous, intense, drone. Furthermore, it is very obvious he's reading the text. This is underscored by several mispronunciations that are common to the hunting world and / or wouldn't have been mispronounced in regular conversation. The effect was the narration was just too wearisome to listen.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bryan Brendle?
David McCullough. This story needs an easy going voice of an old bird hunter who's sitting on a rocking chair in front of the Feed Store.
Could you see Afield being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
No, it's not set up like that. It's a series of stories, not one continuous story in itself. Also, it's too philosophical to create into a TV series / movie.
Any additional comments?
I listened to Afield before I've read it (I haven't read it yet). It sounds like a good story, thus, it may be better to read it than listen to this version.
