This audiobook is to classical music what Bill Bryson's A Brief History on Nearly Everything is to Cosmology. If you enjoyed that work, you will enjoy this. It is packed with insight not only into the masterworks of classical music, but the lives of the composers, their unique relationships with each other, and the history of the time. Its brilliant, and I could not get enough. The narrator is a perfect complement to the book.
Apart from the incredible and beautiful story, I must say, the reader is phenomenal. So possibly yes, to enjoying the audio more than reading. I listen at the gym, so I enjoy the audio version anyway.
I feel closer with Agassi after listening... loved the book.
No, I cherish the books over time.
If you like sports, you definitely will enjoy this book.
This book had a potential.. but very long winded, every chapter introduces a new futuristic threat rather than getting on with the main plot.. like an introduction that never ends. The reader is good, but a wasted talent here. He deserves better things. I can't believe the author enjoyed writing this book--it is laborious and cumbersome, and well, plain unenjoyable. I listen and become annoyed and angry.
