Yes, but only the hard copy or paperback because of the audio book narration.
I believe the narrator had a health problem, maybe had a stroke or something similar. In my opinion, he should not still be narrating books. Sometimes he would run out of breath before finishing a sentence, or it seemed he had a hard time "pushing" out a word. He would also pause in the middle of sentences. I really think it was hard for him to get the words out. I was worn out listening by the time I finished the book and did so only because of the interesting subject matter.
Yes, if you can tolerate the narration.
Not sure if it was worth my time due to poor narration.
He kept making mistakes, like starting his sentences over again.
The content seemed to be interesting, but due to all the mistakes of the narrator, I found myself starting to listen for and even counting the mistakes instead of concentrating on the book's contents. Should have had a professional narrator.
No, due to the horrible experiences described therein.
The fact that Theresa let the abuse continue for so long.
She was overly-dramatic which made a lot of her narration hard to understand and became frustrating and tiring. The over-dramatization also diminished the point of the book. She was not a good choice to narrate this book.
Theresa kept blaming everyone but herself for her abuse, and kept stating that she was only a child at the time. I don't consider 15 and 16 years of age that of a child.
Dr. Anderson's own story made the book most interesting.
Reggie Anderson. His humor and honesty.
Have not listened to any others, but he is terrific!
I cried at some parts and actually laughed at some.
Great story. I think the Audible edition is a must-have!
June Juanico certainly should have felt very special to have been so close to Elvis. I could almost feel exactly how she felt when describing those fun and intimate times she had with the King. What an experience - what memories! I enjoyed listening to the audiobook except each time the narrator, Bernadette Flaggler, pronounced "Biloxi". That made me cringe. Narrators should learn how the locals pronounce names before trying to narrate a book. Otherwise, she did a good job, and I would recommend the book. June detailed her experiences well.
June. She included lots of details.
All in all, a good and enjoyable listen, except for some of the pronunciation. Narrator did not know how the people in the area pronounce "Biloxi". Being from the area, I found it hard to listen each time she said it.
Mimi Alford's account of her affair with JFK was very interesting and told with heart-felt honesty. No stone was left unturned as she unveiled her story. Being the same age as Mimi in 1962, I can relate to a 19 yr. old girl's excitement caused by her experiences in Washington, DC. Young and innocent, Mimi, gave no excuses for her actions, other than she was star-struck and overwhelmed by the affection shown her by the President of the United States. The narrator, Susan Denaker, did a superb job of telling the story, and I felt as though Mimi, herself, was speaking.
No one particular part. All chapters were thoroughly interesting.
There were no funny parts. I almost felt just like I was there, as the descriptions were so vivid.
Recommend the audiobook above other versions due to the excellent narration. Enjoyed this book and appreciated Mimi's honesty. Also, I have a much lower opinion of JFK than before I read the book.
I do believe in angels, but Lorna Byrne's account of her experiences is hard to believe as true. It was an interesting and uplifting book, and I really liked the narration by Sile Bermingham, who had a smooth and easy style. Lorna states one time she was made invisible by the angels, God (or the higher power) ruffled her hair and sat and talked with her. So many of the experiences she says she had are very hard to consider as real. As a child, Lorna Byrne, was thought to have mental problems by others. They may have been right.
The book was very good, and I really like Allison's voice. That is why I gave it 4 stars. She seemed so genuine, more than a professional reader ever could, and I wanted to learn all about her and the books she has written - UNTIL - I saw her on the Dec. 2010 episode of Real Housewives on which she was a guest. She was drinking Vodka, smoking, and cursing (vulger words that had to be bleeped). My heart sank, and I was devastated. She showed a lot of arrogance regarding her psychic abilities. Why would she do these things when she knew it was being filmed? Was it the Vodka? I think the people mentioned in her book are real, and that she has a gift, but I no longer wish to know more about her.
This audio book was interesting and, for the most part, well-read. The narrator lowered her voice to a gruff rumbling a little too many times while quoting others. This seemed to take away from the pleasant and smooth flow of the book, even though her voice was soothing and easy to listen to otherwise. The author referred to her sister much too often, almost as though the sister should have written the book. Also, the author seemed obsessed with sex, and gave so much time to this subject that it became boring. The book was interesting, however, and worth the price.
