I could listen to Grover Gardner read the yellow pages.
But I doubt i would choose another book by Robert Littell. This book had too much narrative and too little action for my taste. In fact, I had to go back and listen to some of the book to remember what it was about.
I never understand why Audible asks this question.
Grover Gardner's voice makes me feel like I am reading the book
The only inspiration I got was not to get another book of his. I have read other reviews of this author, and a lot of people really enjoy them. Guess his style of writing just does't work for me.
I wouldn't discourage anyone else to try it
A different author and narrator
Words with more than 3 syllables and a plot.
Nobody comes to mind
Not for me.
It would be difficult to recommend any changes because it earned the Booker Prize. That is a very intimidating award.
Thomas Cromwell has always intrigued me, but I got tired of him...I am not so intrigued any more
He was the only reason I kept trying to like the book.
Well, I don't plan to invest the time finishing it.
Even with Mr. Slater's skills,I i was often baffled about who was talking and what/who they were talking about. This is sometimes a disadvantage in any book with the audio format, as I can't flip back the pages. That said, I probably wouldn't have had the patience to go back and forth in the book, either.
