Interesting story but the production value / quality of the audio is absolutely terrible. The volume and clarity of the narrator varies wildly even within chapters. Better to read this in book form vs audio.
Amazing story... Good narration... For some reason there were very awkward transitions and cut-offs which made it seem like i was jumping ahead, but turned out to just be shoddy editing i guess.
This is the very first review I have ever left on audible since becoming a member nearly 8 years ago. So let me say..... This was a great story! I always love Scott Brick as a narrator. Unfortunately, the sudden stops at what I can only assume is almost the end of a chapter were very annoying, to say the least. The last couple of words (I hope it was only the much) were always cut off and a new scene started immediately. I made it through the book despite this, but it definitely impacted my enjoyment. I hated to leave only 3 stars, but I really have no idea how much story was left out. I hope it was very little.
Riveting, heart-wrenching, true
I read this book years ago and noticed it is being released as a movie in March 2015. My husband and I listened to it in Jan. 2015 on our road trip from Chicago to Tucson and the states flew by! He loved it! It's a wonderful moment when we share the same passion for the same book.
Philbrick is an amazing writer. I will try again with Mayflower:)
The book was great, super compelling. The performance was good, but the editing was terrible. The end of each chapter was cut off and the sound was very uneven. This is such a good book, it's such a shame that the audio quality is so bad. Still worth listening to, but the publisher really needs to fix these files.
I liked this book. It was my first non fiction. I'm into much different books than this type of book. But I found it interesting. From the point the story actually began, about a 1/3 into the book it started getting interesting. So the last 2/3 was awesome. Lol
It makes me wanna go to Nantucket Isle now.
I loved the story and the historical facts in the book. However there are times when it feels like the playback ends mid sentence and starts on the next chapter. Doesn't ruin the book, just annoying.
The author appears to have done his research. He adds medical facts about starvation and survivor trauma. A good read, but the audio quality was not the best.
Scott Brick's narration was solid but the production was very uneven with changes in speed and quality, particularly noted at about the halfway point when he suddenly sounded like he had a slight dose of helium. I deducted a star for that issue, not for Mr. Brick's work on the story.
