    Story
    (14)

    During his 29th year, spending just $19,420.68, less than it would have cost him to stay at home, Adam Shepard visited seventeen countries on four continents and lived some amazing adventures. "It's interesting to me," he says, "that in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Europe, it's normal for people to pack a bag, buy a plane ticket, and get 'Out There'."

    Elizabeth says: "Annoying & Immature"
    "Inspiring story, technically unimpressive."

    Story
    Where does One Year Lived rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    An amazing story that is one of the best non-fiction adventure audio books I have listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The enthusiasm from the author/narrator was contagious. I really enjoyed the detail in the story.


    What three words best describe Adam Shepard’s performance?

    Authentic. Excited. Hilarious.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The inspiration for adventure.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have given this book higher marks, if not for the quality of the recording. The volume changed throughout the book, obviously when the engineer stopped the daily sessions. The author/narrator is not an experienced voice talent, which caused several mis-pronunciations and unclear pronunciations.
