I am a dog person, not a cat person, so that was easy. But I had a bit of trouble keeping going through a couple parts as they closely reflected things that are happening with my dog. But how they were done was good and eventually not as painful as I thought they would be. On the whole, I loved the entire book. The dog's perspective was well done. The book gave me something to think about as to how to live my life. Good narrator. I'll be reading it again.
A real reader and better recording. Kill the music.
Disappointment, frustration, anger.
This book was definitely not worth the money. Most of it cannot be understood. The recording is very poor. It sounds like it was recorded in a cavern. Add the spooky music in the background and only half of it can be understood. (Who decided to put a song with words over a speaker??)Hugh Montgomery may be a great academic, but he is a thoroughly lousy reader. I might have given this more stars if he had stayed out of it and had a reader perform it.I liked the facts that I could understand on this recording. But everything else was worse than useless. The stupid music that I think is only there to take up time, needs to be deleted. It's not nice that I'm paying for a 68 minutes of book and almost half of it is JUST music (and bad music at that). If I could, I'd get my money back from Audible.Like someone else mentioned on here, there were no reviews when I purchased it. I might not do that again.
This book about the theft of the Mona Lisa would be better read (as opposed to heard). Although the reader has a pleasant tone, her pace is sooooooooooooo sloooooooooooooow. This 6 hour 44 minute book would probably just be a 3 hour book if read by someone else. Her pace makes me feel like an idiot who needs to be spoken to slowly and clearly, so it's coming off a bit insulting. I've put the book aside for now. Don't know if I'll go back. Maybe there's an Audible Cliff Notes copy?
