No, not from Stephen P. Kershaw. It was too dry and boring. I suppose that it's my fault for choosing something that could probably be used as a textbook (assuming it's accurate).
Cameron Stewart was fine.
I like the way the author explaines the way the different sources have details. For example, he'll say something like so-and-so either killed himself or was strangled to death by his enemy or went on a hunting expedition.
Yes, I would, because it's packed with intrigue, gore, and so many interwoven characters. It's pretty hard to keep all the characters straight, but that doesn't get much in the way of the exciting plot.
The reader is acceptable, but nothing more. He has a nice gravely, old man voice, but it has very little range. The characters all sound pretty much the same. It's like having grandpa tell you a story.
The plot twist at the end was great. I was about to go see the movie, but I'm glad I waited until I'd finished the book.
His Indian accent was good (as far as I can tell). His Japanese was not exactly spot-on, but it was fine.
I loved learning about the experiences of people from the dust bowl. It's awful and amazing how people treat each other. The story is depressing, but absorbing.
Dylan Baker is a good reader.
The harmonica intros are a bit loud and annoying.
I would recommend this book. There are surprising plot twists and a few thought-provoking moments.
