NO! I'm deleting this audiobook from my library and ordering the print edition. What a waste of money.
Everything. Listening to his ridiculously over-emphatic performance is like being repeatedly hit over the head with a blunt object, and I was only able to stand it for 20 minutes or so. I finally had to give up, even though I was extremely interested by the book itself.
Warning to potential buyers: listen to an audio sample before purchasing. If you can deal with the narrator's performance, more power to you. If you're like me, you'll order the print or Kindle edition.
As noted by many others below, this fantastic book did not get the audio performance it deserves. Did the producer or editor even listen to this thing?
Note to whoever is responsible: next time you have a notable book about film history like this one, hire a reader who actually knows something about movies and then have someone listen to the completed recording and correct all the cringe-inducing mispronunciations of names and basic words. Mark Harris and his wonderful book deserve better.
I call do-over.
Profound! Sadistic! Ruthless! Twisted! SURVIVAL! Fear humankind and the zombies!
I could not put this book down. I wish they would have incorporated more elements of The Road to Woodbury in the TV series. Elements that do appear in the series are: Penny, Philip, the heads in jars, and the town. I may be forgetting a couple more.
This book explains the Philip and penny storyline and how Philip came to power. The book is fast paced, filled with teeth gritting, breathe holding, horror.
