I'm only at chapter 4 or so, but if I don't have it at 1.5x or 2.0x (speed) Inglis puts me to sleep. He is frustrating and annoying.
I realize it's only one person doing all the voices and that can make things difficult... but his voices sound too similar from character to character, and many of the voices are rather ridiculous. Since I listen to this with headphones, his breathing and phlegm can be rather offputting.
He pauses for long periods between stanzas of the songs, and even longer between chapters. These are dramatic pauses, but at times it seems he pauses to catch his breath.
Alan Cumming is nothing short of brilliant as the narrator. He puts you into the mind of Watson as he describes this wonderful little adventure.
A great holiday listen.
Dave Barry is a genius. Listening to this on public transportation is risky. People will stare as you become hysterical and giggly. It's a great testament that I was willing to endure the looks of distain as I rode to and from work. It's that good.
The book was very good. It was not something I will think about forever and ever. It was a bit of fluff, with all the romance and stereotypes. But I found myself getting involved with all the stories.
Anna Fields did a very good job with the various voices, moods, and attitudes. She brought it to life.
The man, Jefferson is fascinating. His words, his thoughts, his life. All just amazing. The book is extremely well written, full of perfect quotes and snippets of the mans life.
The history. Our history, and the creation of this country. Rich with import and bearing on today's society.
Not sure... but Herrmann did a wonderful job. Great voice; perfect for this type of historical biography.
The same as the book title. Or Thomas Jefferson: Words of Freedom.
One of my favoirte audiobooks thus far. A perfect combination of great story and the perfect narrator.
Middle. It's good. Not great, amazing or breathtaking... but a good, interesting listen.
That would be a spoiler to anyone who might read this before listening to the book.
This is my first time with Mr. Perlman. He did a good job.
No... too long.
Ron has a nice melodious voice. Sometimes he can be a bit soporific. But otherwise a good story, interesting details, mostly believable. One plot point was a bit annoying and I question the authors use of it.
Tina is amazing. I love the way she narrates this book. It's her voice, after all, and she is brilliant. Her intelligence and wit come through. Her humor comes through. It is funny and poignant.
Fey is at once self-efacing and proud.
It was so interesting, riviting and enjoyable, I didn't want to turn it off.
