book of goddess
I loved hearing the book come to life. The narrator was excellent, so many great character voices.
I'm pretty fond of Miss Trixie: "I'm a very attractive woman!"
I would listen to this again. I've read the book 4 times. Comic gold classic!
Narrated beautifully, this book seems to stand up to the test of time. Although seemingly cursed with regard to a film version, the story and characters are very suitable for adaptation.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It took me aback at first but I jumped in quickly. I honestly believe the narrator, Barrett Whitener, was excellent and he truly gave a performance. I found myself talking along with some of the characters. Highly, highly recommended!
A friend recommended this book to me 20 years ago and I let that recommendation go in one ear and slip out of the other and that was my loss.
I loved this, it's laugh out loud funny, has great characters that you can relate to and who are textural. It's well written and grabs your attention. Pretty much everything you want from a book.
Do yourself a favor and, at the very least, get this on your 'must read' list!!
While I love this book, I feel that the performance was lacking for a number of reasons. The reader failed to grasp the importance of the correct accents to the storyline and his mispronounciation of names, streets, and places was distracting. A little research would have improved the experience considerably.
This has been on my radar for years from multiple recommendations. I'm not sure if it was the content or narration, but i gave up after about 3 hrs. As a Southerner, it pains me to hear poorly rendered dialects. I'm not sure if Barrett Whitener is trying to be comical and failing or earnest and failing. I think he may have been going for an Uncle Remus sound, but it came across as a drugged Foghorn Leghorn.
I'm sure this book has literary potential, but was put off by the narration.

the book is very well read. Good voicing and well paced. I only rated the story 3 stars.
