Narrator did a great job and made this detailed book very easy to listen to. This would have been a very "tedious" listen were it not for narrator.
In a sentence, this book is about a man who balances being an FBI whistleblower, embezzler, and a company man all at the same time.
Story was interesting and entertaining, just be prepared to get A LOT OF DETAIL! This isn't a quick listen.
If you are interested in the Conan/Leno saga, this book is for you. The book also touches on various other late night talk show hosts you may be familiar with. Narration was spot on!
Having read the book, I was disappointed in the narration. The narrator's rendition of Richie's various voices gave me a headache. It was just annoying. Every time Richie came into the story, I would turn down the volume as the narrator took the various voices WAY over the top. 47 hours of having to turn the volume up and down was not very enjoyable. The narrator just seemed to overact each of the characters which caused the listening experience for me to just feel uneven. It's still a Stephen King book, so the story was interesting, but the narration ruined the experience for me.
Great story and wonderful narration. Story is a good balance of training and actual undercover work. Narrator avoids common narration trap of overacting the parts.
