No. I listened well the first time. Unless I can convince the three 20-twentysomething sons to listen if I listened with them.
Absolutely no other than I can think of, except maybe Bloodletters and Bad Men; the characters, not the presentation style.
Bernadette totally deadpanned the entire performance. She came across as the emotion-starved, bored personality she was emulating. BRAVO!!!!! Bernadette. I didn't like you either! (I kept thinking to myself, is the AUTHOR reading this?) I've since separated the two of you. Whew. Got sucked in there!
No. I did it in about 4 sittings, I do electronic circuit board work. Perfect for listening to Audible.
Mothers: Make your children read or listen to this book. Mandatory reading. Get past the inconsistencies (we are talking a sociopath here, remember! Jodi Arias: Explained!) and gather the information offered about spotting these functional (and especially the nonfunctional) sociopaths. The antennae can only go up if they've been programmed. Education of our children is the best defense.
The author said it best: Mormon boys are especially easy to fool.
Just ask Travis Alexander.
I found myself not liking the Miriam character because of the voice given her by the reader. I kept picturing the words on a page and seeing if that would've been the tone I assigned her. It wasn't. And yet I cheered for her throughout notwithstanding the harsh correction of Edward when he threatened to bite. But I suppose that technique was popular in the decade this book was written.
Awesome human story
The rescue of Colette
The forgiveness shown Valjean by the Bishop over the candlesticks theft
Listening to the dulcet tones of George Guidall convey Les Miserables made this audio book stellar. His perfect language skills; his emotion; his incredible character-capturing tones. . . they all lend the most compelling ambiance to this book. And to hear the entire story is something no one should miss. Tho' the screenwriters did a perfect job of condensing the basic story to the movie, to know all the background and the human story Hugo was telling is what makes Les Miserables a book for all. Besides, you get a pretty good history of Napoleonic wars. I would've had a hard time READING those parts, Guidall made it a joy. I listen while I do through-hole soldering (my job), and it made work something I couldn't wait to do.
