Heartpounding; Intriguing; Compelling
There are two moments where otherwise disparate parts of the story come crashing together. The listener enjoys an "ah-ha" moment.
Mr. Bauckham gives voice to the characters. Though this is not a dramatization, you do get the sense of seeing or hearing different actors portraying the different characters.
He is a master of several british realm accents, allowing the listener to believe that they are listening to the characters and not a narrator.
Finding time to listen is easier than finding time to read. Many hours behind the wheel allow me to safely enjoy an audiobook where reding a print or digital media book would be impossible or at least ill-advised.
Pete is clearly central. This is, after all an autobiography. I very much enjoyed that he narrated. His candor and self-awareness (low self esteem notwithstanding) personalized his tales and experiences and allowed the listener in. Thank you.
The authors narration makes this more the telling of stories than the reading of a book.
I laughed. I cried. I cheered and I jeered.
