I enjoyed the audio version as much as the book version, largely because I am at a time in my life where I need to clean my house when I previously may have had time to read a book. It is an excellent narration, the tempo and voice matching my feelings when I read it, which always makes an audible book more appealing.
I enjoy everything Gabriel García Márquez has written. I like the honesty and cynicism in the women, the naive romanticism in the men. I enjoy the languid story of transformation, of metamorphosis and returning to vows and ideals of youthful folly.
I enjoy his pace and tempo. His American accent has just enough Hispanic intonation that it doesn't take away from the book, as so many Americans narrators do for me.
Javier Bardem makes this worth watching, but this book should never be replaced by a movie. Read the book first.
Thank you so much, Audible, for bringing Garcia Marquez to Audible!!!
Attenborough's memoirs are fantastic in helping to understand not only public broadcasting philosophy in Britain, but also how the BBC became the top producer of natural history documentaries that are educational, encourage critical thinking about the natural world, help us understand the myriad relationships in the natural and physical world, and great fun to watch. Attenborough's reading lends considerable personality to this first-hand account that is interesting, sometimes very comedic, and entertaining through its entire length. A must for David Attenborough devotees.
