    Where does A Game of Thrones (Part Two) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Amongst the top of my list of Audios.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The telling of this story as it unfolds.


    What three words best describe Roy Dotrice’s performance?

    Raw, Gravelly,sometimes sounding monotone in his telling, and sometimes he sounds as though he is just reading the text.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I had to take breaks from listening


    Any additional comments?

    The whole series of this Authors story is fantastic to read. The film version outdoes both the read of the story and the listening of it. The whole of it ---A very creative and imaginative series. Throughly enjoyable.

    Story
    (877)

    Frank W. Abagnale was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot's uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. His story is now a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    What a character with a big illusion of grandeur.


    Have you listened to any of Barrett Whitener’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No never listened to others by the orator


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting to listen to with lots of little funny happings,
    which I laughed to.
