I have listened to 3 Tom Wolfe Audiobooks and they ALL rank among my top favorite listens! Well worth the credits!
LDP's narration was magnificent! I thought that maybe there was more than one narrator, but it was just him. I am definitely about to search through all the titles that he narrates and see if I can find something else great to listen to.
John Grisham - of course. Catherine Taber - heck no.
I have spent MANY credits on John Grisham books, and this is the only time I have regretted it. First of all, the narrator's voice is so SLOW and BORING I listened to the first 2 hours at a higher speed on my Kindle. I THOUGHT that once the story got going I could slow it back down to normal speed and just enjoy the listen. I was so wrong. I am not sure if it's the narrator or the story, but this book sounds like half of those stupid half-hearted romance/drama novels. Her voice is just horrible...point blank. But the story seems like a drag too. I just don't get the same feeling as I do with every other Grisham novel I have in my library. I am trying to get through it because I am a loyal Grisham fan, but I am at the 5th hour and I think I am just going to quit before I throw my Kindle against the wall for some excitement..
Great book if you like to work (I am a bookkeeper) at your desk on monotonous tasks while listening to an audiobook. It's not the type of story that will make you forget you are working. It is an easy listen and a very interesting story. It's like listening to someone spill their guts about every detail of their life for hours while you just work away. But I promise you won't be bored!!! The narrator was perfect (for this particular type of book). Personally, I am glad I took a chance on it.
