This was a great story. I was captivated and couldn't listen fast enough. My only gripe was the narrator was only pretty good. I've heard worse on audible, but I've heard better too. My main gripes were his pronunciation of Dallas as "Dallath", and a Ford coupe as a "koo-pay". Also, he had a monotone, which at times downplayed the excitement of the scene. Think Tom Bodet in the Motel 6 commercials, he kind of sounded like that. But overall it was still a great listen and I highly recommend it. The details, facts, and fictions of Bonnie and Clyde were amazing.
Interesting book with a lot of great details but the narration was kind of distracting. The reader sort of slurs his words at times and some letters are not clearly pronounced. It took me a while to realize Clyde's mother's name was Cumie and not Humie. And sometimes words that end with 's' seem like the ending gets lost so "Dallas" sounds like "Dallah." It's not horrible but it is a bit distracting - I'm sometimes working so hard to catch what he's saying that I lose the thread of the actual story which is very good.
...well you don't! Not until you read this account of their lives. The stroy line is esceptional and offered specifics I had never heard before. I couldn't put it down This is a keeper!
I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.
With the growing tide of Gangster entertainment where people want to be regailed with all the action in a way that makes it dramatic, fun, and interesting there is a small window of people who want the real story and this is the True story of Bonnie and Clyde. A little difficult at times to follow but that is how life is. I thought this book was alot of interestin facts that made the story all the more interesting.
I think so the narrator was extremely good
Expression, speed wasn't too fast, and pleasant tone.
The build up to the end
This grabbed me right away and kept me interested until the end. I actually sat in my driveway listening after my commute.
Yes, I thought it was very informative.
I'm glad it told about the upbringing of Bonnie and Clyde's parents and themselves. It showed more of the kind of people they were and why.
Oh I suppose you could. I listen at work so it might take a few days to finish.
This story just shows how messed up the media get the information. Nice to hear the whole story!!
Worth a read, but not as good as I thought. I like how it starts with the parents and moves through time. I did learn things I never knew--about Bonnie and Clyde; how criminals were treated in the early days, and history and how authority acted and reacted.
Seemed well documented.
Worth a read.
This is a good book, with many historical facts, yet in no way boring. No profanity, or not much, if any.
Of the books I have listened to, this is my number two favorite.
My grandmother was in the same age group as Bonnie and Clyde and used to tell me about them. They drove near her home at one time, which scared her family because they were killers after all. Yet, she had a kindness in her heart toward them also. She didn't approve of the way they were killed. As most of the people her age, she had a strong dislike for the bankers, so stealing from the banks wasn't that big of an offense. She considered the bankers to be thieves. That said, you can understand my curiosity about this group.
He does from time to time seem to have spit build up in his mouth that is sorta distracting
This is the first Bonnie and Clyde book I've ever read and I found it pretty interesting. There was a lot of stuff that I didn't know.
Good book, the others who made comments about the narrator were correct however it didn't really bother me, I still enjoyed the book.
