I foolishly ignored all the reviews that said the narrator was horrible. I thought I'd see for myself. BIG mistake. The book is excellent and I highly recommend reading it. I started with the audible recording but soon became utterly disgusted with the narrator who has absolutely no imagination and must be someone's wife or friend owed a favor. But the story is a good one so I got the book and totallly loved it. Don't waste your time with this recording!
I love history and I love biography. This book brings them both together, and brings them alive. Listening to this audiobook helped me understand who they were and why they made the choices they made. I was sad to see their end come -- they felt like people I knew and cared about. A top notch book.
I really appreciated how the author put their story in the context of the economic and social conditions of their time -- I could see what had shaped them.
The narrator brings a "down home" feel to the book. He sounds like someone who knew Clyde and Bonnie.
I wish the author had talked more about Clyde's interest in music. I'm glad he talked about Bonnie's poetry. People were more willing to be creative back then.
I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
