I've listened to hundreds of audible.com books and this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review to comment on the absolutely terrible narration which it's a shame because the book is very good. The narrator takes huge gasps for air between almost every phrase. Much of the narration also came across as very condescending which I felt was disrespectful of the people whose stories are told. The only way I could continue listening was to double the narration speed.
The writing is so powerful and the performance by Kenneth Branagh so exceptional that I could read this book again and again just as I might enjoy again seeing a favorite Broadway play. This was entertainment at its best.
