Kind of. I like long, complicated stories, but this book could easily have been half as long. It was often tedious and slow- moving.
That aspect of the story was pretty well-done.
John Lee would be my first choice, but almost anyone would be an improvement. Although many reviewers gave the narrator high marks, I really disliked his performance. It was way too slow & melodramatic.
A lot of the historical detail was well-researched, but to someone familiar with the time period, the several historical inaccuracies were really annoying.
An editor and a different narrator.
A different narrator. Kafer is one of the worst I've ever heard. Over dramatic, lousy with accents, losing track of the different voices/accents of characters. It's painful to listen to him read
Maybe. The story is okay, but it's a little awkward and disjointed. It's hard to tell, however, if this is due to the way the book was written or the way it's narrated. The main character's voice is normal, but otherwise most of the men with southern accents sound either dumb or effeminate. The female voices are AWFUL and they really had a negative influence on the way I felt about the characters. All of the women sound stupid or whiny. It made the whole book very irritating to listen to. If I hadn't purchased this book as part of a $4.95 sale, I would have been pretty upset about how bad it was.
