The fact that Bill Bryson narrated it. No one else could have captured his style, I don't think.
His " At Home," I suppose.
He just makes me laugh. He brings so much humor to his travel experiences that he makes you want to go to even the places he did not like.
If I had the time to, I could sit there all say listening to this audiobook.
The narrator! His voice is very clear, but so monotone that he could be reading the phone book.
The river itself. It's dangerous and beautiful and mysterious.
I'm pretty sure I will not. I think he could be a good narrator, but he needs to loosen up quite a bit.
Yes, the story actually is fascinating. I have no idea who would be starring. I am not a casting agent. I'm just reviewing an audiobook.
I would actually buy this book again if I could find a version with another narrator.
Probably one of the better audiobooks, both in regard to narration and story.
The Catherine Howard sex scenes were my favorites, I'm ashamed to confess. I giggled my way through all of them because the narrator seemed so embarrassed to be reading them that his voice became very rushed and even more clipped than usual. He sounded like he was rushing through a reproductive organs lecture to a sixth grade class.
" Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the altar..."
I really enjoyed the book, although I did fast forward through the Catherine of Aragon chapters. I found her as boring as Henry did, I'm afraid. I thought the book was very insightful into how UNinsightful and deluded Henry probably was in life.
