    Story
    (19)

    In the summer of 1967, an Arctic hurricane trapped seven veteran climbers, members of Joe Wilcox's 12-man expedition, at 20,000 feet on Alaska's Mount McKinley. Ten days passed while the storm raged. Despite the availability of massive resources, no rescue was mounted, and all seven men died. The tragedy was one of the most controversial, bitterly contested, and mysterious tragedies in all of mountaineering history.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was too long and there were too many different people which made it confusing to listen to.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Not sure.

    Story
    What disappointed you about The Power of Positive Thinking?

    While some of the methods described are universal this book had too many religious and Jesus references which made this Jewish girl uncomfortable at times.


    Has The Power of Positive Thinking turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I didn't know it was based on mostly religious beliefs and the Bible. I need some advice that is more universal to anyone, not just religious people.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

    No. The author had a slow sort of southern drawl which was annoying to me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Power of Positive Thinking?

    All of the Bible and Jesus references.

  • Angela's Ashes

    Story
    (1284)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: There’s no gentle way to put this – Frank McCourt’s performance of Angela’s Ashes is just better than the Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Frank McCourt shares his sometimes heartwarming, sometimes heartbreaking story of growing up poor, Irish, and Catholic in the Pulitzer Prize-winning memoir Angela's Ashes.

    Karen says: "A classic book *and* a classic audiobook"
    "Long but also interesting"

    Would you try another book from Frank McCourt and/or Frank McCourt?

    Probably not.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was too long, it took me weeks to finish listening and I was losing interest.


    Have you listened to any of Frank McCourt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Was Angela's Ashes worth the listening time?

    No, it was not worth all of the length of time it took to complete the listening.


    Any additional comments?

    It makes you appreciate having the basic necessities of life. It was somewhat depressing at times and very long to listen to.
