David LeDoux's narration style was distracting at best and irratating at worst. The rhythm and cadence of his narration style was hard to listen to for even a short period of time.
I am an avid reader and can honestly say that over 99% of the time the book is much better than the movie. The book offers insights that just can't be translated to a specified time block in a movie production. However, The Postman is an exception to this rule. Hats off to the writer(s) who translated this novel to a successful Hollywood screenplay. They were able to trim away the unneccessary and pointless drivel to get to the heart of the story: that one man with a conscience can change the world. Of course, Kevin Costner and Tom Petty didn't hurt my enjoyment of the movie.
