Yes, I think I would. I found the author and the narrative interesting.
I've been reading a lot of biographies as of late. I just finished Ben Franklin and found it similar. Not really a one on one comparison though. In recording quality and likeableness of the narrator yes. There was just more facts to go on with the well-documented Franklin. But in the honest attempt to portray a full unbiased story without a lot of progressive fanboy comments along the way they were both well done.
The interview he adds at the end about the creation of the book alone was nearly worth the cost. I doubt having it in print would have been as enjoyable.
'Marlowe was Shakespeare? Themes are fighting words! Seriously...' Discovery documentary, yes. Major film? Not in the slightest...
I liked the story, more than this questionnaire. I've read Bryson's Into the Wild which was the biggest reason I bought into this audio book. I learned a bit about both the playwright and Bryson. I like them both enough to submit to this lame set of interrogatories.
At least you didn't threaten to put my response on facebook or ask new age questions like:
