Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This selection contained an excellent and balanced overview of Yosemite National Park. I am a tour guide and naturalist, and am always on the lookout for information add to my repertoire of knowledge. I was pleasantly surprised to find this audible guide to be heavy on natural history information.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I would have rated this tour guide higher, but the incredibly annoying background music detracted from an otherwise enjoyable experience. The music strongly reminded me of the most annoying and cheaply produced high school geography/social studies filmstrips from the '70s. It was often overpowering-ly loud, making it hard to concentrate on the narration. Also, I am while sure the narrators were professionals, they obviously lacked a science background. As someone who works in the National Parks, their goofy pronunciations of common scientific/geologic terms drove me nuts. Next time, I wish the producers of this tour would recruit a local guide with decent communication skills who can deliver this information in a more appealing manner.
Was Yosemite Tour worth the listening time?
All that said, I still think "Yosemite Tour" is well worth the time and minimal cost.
