This is another memoir that would not have made the same impact if read by anyone but the author. I am not sure I would have liked the book as much if I had read it the traditional way! You can read about Carol doing her Tarzan yell or you can actually hear her do it. It is just not the same! I loved Carol growing up and still do. She is an American icon. I cannot express how much I loved this book!
The narration is done in a near monotone and she speaks much too quickly. I miss Susan Erickson. The story as always is socially conscious and intriguing.
I was engrossed and interested in the book. Ant then I got to the part where he was discussing how patients under general anesthesia were recalling what the staff did during a code. About the 10th time he pronounced anesthesia "Anastasia" I had to click the off button and stop listening.
The story was suspenseful as always. The reading reminded me of a college lecture. Professional and perfunctory.
I love this series! My only negative is the narator's rhythm of speaking and her continual pronunciation of cavalry as calvary. It is very distracting.
I loved listening to this book. It would not have been the same if it were read by anyone but the author! No one would have done the voices the same or sang the songs we who were weaned on his stand up routine know so well. I love Steve and at one time knew his comedy routines by rote. I love him as an actor today. After listening to his book I understand the life of the aspiring comic and know exactly why he chose another course for his career. Love this book!
I enjoy all of her books and have also read the Virals stories. Different characters and the same excellent writing!
