I knew very little about Stan Musial before reading this book and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him through Vecsey's writing. Details that may have seemed mundane early in the book, created "ah, that's why he wrote about that moments" later on.
Stan the Man!
I've listened to a couple other books that Brick was OK with. Apparently biographies are not his strong suit as he over dramatizes the reading to the point that I had to set down my iPod and walk away. Listening to this book you would think Bricks, breathy, emotionally laden description of the best cuts of meat in Stanley's restaurant was akin to the death of a Pope! I will think twice before ever getting a book read by this narrator.
Someone needs to edit the voice work on this book. Listening to the apparently "out-of-breath" narrator gasp for air every sentence makes listening to this book painful. I am amazed that this was released in a pre-production state.
I loved the fact that the author did so much research in making this, what I can only assume, is a historically accurate book.
Listening to him gasp for air every other sentence, and sometimes not even every OTHER sentence. It is painful to listen to!
Not in it's current state. Somebody needs to spend a few days editing the air-gasps out! HORRIFIC!
