Crais is awesome...but the person who hired the narrator and thought that it was recordable should find another job. The narration and quality of the recording is so horrible that I'm afraid I've had enough...I don't even want to listen to it - and I really hate not finishing a book, but life is too short to listen to bad books. Pass on this one...trust me. Read it perhaps - but do yourself a favor and do not listen to this Lawlor guy.
While the first thirty minutes were mildly interesting, after that it all went south and I stopped listening. His facts were completely wrong and his opinions are insulting to the people of America. Clearly he has never owned a business because his idea of all business owners stealing from their employees and even called the employees slaves is ludicrous.
Narrator, as a narrator, was fine.
I'd dump the entire thing in the dumpster. The most hateful book of the United States I've ever came across.
Run from this book.
It could have been better if the author wrote this book in chronological order - instead it skips back and forth from artist to year to event. Honestly, I couldn't finish it...much like my lima beans as a kid.
At times I was completely captivated, the other times I was saying to myself, "Wait, I thought we were talking about 1860, but now we're back in 1850."
Tristan was great. Well done sir.
I rarely write bad reviews because the books I choose to read are fabulous...except, well, this one. I feel bad for giving King a bad review...but I do rather want the 12 hours I spent reading (listening to) this back. Good day Mr. King.
