Could have been passable
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
People who don't mind awful narration and forced gonzo journalism.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Diction and pronunciation were terrible. Not a professional narrator at all! The Southern accent could have been an asset for the setting of the book if the narrator had been a professional.
Any additional comments?
This could have potentially been a good non-fiction natural/social history like Kurlansky's oyster and cod books. Such a work would have been very beneficial to the cause of alligator gar conservation. It could have been a great fishing/outdoor book too. Unfortunately the author felt the need to attempt to emulate Hunter Thompson at random intervals throughout the narrative. This nonsense combined with the atrocious narration was a total deal-breaker. I only listened to the whole thing without returning it because gar are so interesting and I was hoping the book could be salvaged. I was wrong.
