    Would you consider the audio edition of No Ordinary Time to be better than the print version?

    I can't say as I haven't read the print version.


    What other book might you compare No Ordinary Time to and why?

    This is an intimate look inside the lives of FDR and the First Lady. In that regard, it reminds me somewhat of Caro's works on LBJ but with a more focused time frame.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Nelson Runger?

    Yes. Good solid, workmanlike narration. Ringer brings the listener the book without getting in the way.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    They're all very interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book. Appropriate narration that was error-free. Recommend.

    Where does Innocent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great book. Gripping. Narration about the best I've heard. About halfway through, I ordered the next Turow book. Hope it meets the standard.
