Do you say Vay-guess, or do you say Vi-gus?
I've heard it called Vi-gus many a times by many who've never been there, just read about it, or were told a story or two about it. Oh, and the other reviewer was right about this narrator: she doesn't know how to pronouce the French word for water eau, which sounds like Oh. Didn't anybody reviewing the audio tell her? BTW, she also slaughtered La Reve and Beau Rivage. Come on! Regardless, the story was fantastic. I absolutlely loved hearing how Wynn and Kakorian got started, and how Vegas (Vay-guess) transformed with the opening of the Mirage.
I think the narator nailed it. Tom wrote the book in first person, of course, and the narrator really made you feel you were listening to Tom talk. I absolutely loved hearing the entire story and being in the same age group as Tim/Tom felt their experiences struck really close to home.
