This was the first Bill Bryson book I read, and soon after went on the hunt for his others. But this unabridged version is not read by Mr Bryson, I had grown accustomed to his voice, and was disappointed to hear anther's voice, Bill does read his abridged version.
I love his outlook on the world, and his humorous bit of sarcasm. It lends hope to us other midlifers, that if Bill and Katz can walk a few hundred miles, then surely a couch potato like me can also.
I love the entire Pendragon series, but again, like in other audible purchases I've made, I'm not pleased with the chosen narrator. While Wanda McCaddon's voice is not displeasing, the accent she reads in sounds too much as if she's suggesting the characters are from India instead of Wales and Scotland. It really takes away form my listening pleasure.
no, I would recommend the abridged version as it's read by the author Bill Bryson.
all of bill bryson books...as long as they're narrated by him.
