    Story
    (31)

    Frank Sinatra was the best-known entertainer of the 20th century - infinitely charismatic, lionized, and notori­ous in equal measure. But despite his mammoth fame, Sinatra the man has remained an enigma. As Bob Spitz did with the Beatles, Tina Brown for Diana, and Peter Guralnick for Elvis, James Kaplan goes behind the legend and hype to bring alive a force that changed popular culture in fundamental ways.

    Brad says: "Both fascinating and tedious"
    "Very disappointed."

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, it would be nice if it covered Mr. Sinatra's ENTIRE life.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    What? His life was over only half-way through it?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rob Shapiro’s performances?

    Not if it can be avoided.


    What else would you have wanted to know about James Kaplan’s life?

    Why would I want to know anything about James Kaplan's life? It's a book about Frank Sinatra? Don't YOU at Audible even know what you're asking me about?


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Shapiro's performance was awful. I stopped counting his mispronounciations at a dozen. At the end of the book there is a stated director. What does she do? Sit back and do her nails? Apparently she didn't listen to the book, or else she was also unaware of how to pronounce the many words the Mr. Shapiro didn't know how to pronounce. Shame on you.
