First of all I purchased this book mistakenly thinking that it is a book read by Stephen Colbert & others. Granted it is my fault may be not to have read what was being offered more carefully. All the same I think there was some confusion in how Audible presented the option, the graphics etc.
Worse than that, the panel was worse than any discussion that one may have heard in a grade school class room. The questions from the audience were not audible, only the answers were.. overall very disappointed! Next time I buy a book, I want the real thing - A good reading of the book not the chit chat that I paid for..
Audible is supposed to be a site to get BOOKS in audible form.
THIS IS A GROUP OF LIBERALS TALKING ABOUT THE BOOK.
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!
If you would like to re-live the grueling academic circle-jerk of a LIT.101 "discussion group," this is a little better. In the end, I resent this recording even more because it pours gasoline on my already burning desire to revisit this book.
I didn't realize it wasn't the actual book
It isn't a story.
Once I realized what it is, I didn't finish it
I liked that the speakers felt deeply about the characters and events in the book. The discussion helped me understand the book better.
I did not realize this was a DISCUSSION of the book and not the book itself, and the book was what I was looking for. The book is excellent--I read it years ago, so was disappointed not to get the book itself. The audio was not good--extremely disappointing!
If it were actually a recording of the book.
Don't buy this if you, like I was, are looking for an audio recording of the book. I am an English teacher and find that audiobooks are more appealing to the students than my voice reading to them all the time. I thought this was and updated version. I was terribly mistaken.
I wish I would have read reviews before purchasing the "book". I was looking for the book it self and this was not what it seems.
