I wouldn't listen to another spoken version musical history by David Browne.
Mr. Browne was describing multiple artists using a chronological order. So as he went through the time period he jumped from artist to artist. Perhaps in the book there was a heading or some other way to indicate a change coming, but on the audible format you have no indication that a change has occurred...after awhile it becomes annoying to suddenly realized he has jumped to another performer/group when a name gets mentioned. "Oh", you think, "James Taylor didn't do that, it was Neil Young".
The story was also rather depressing - I wanted to know more details but wasn't prepared for the downer this story would become.
Not necessarily - maybe other authors have organized their books differently.
I am a great fan of the book, To Kill A Mockingbird. I googled the author of this book and read several links about her relationship with Harper Lee, as well as the original story she did for the newspaper. Then I read her book and I found it to be a rehash of the newspaper article. From all I have read about Harper Lee she can be a rather prickly person - and her dismissal of this author's facts seems to follow her personality. I don't doubt that Marja Mills had cooperation with the Lee sisters and then later on Harper Lee changed her mind because of her aversion to publicity. At the same time, the author isn't actually breaking any new ground with her experiences with Miss Alice Lee and Harper Lee.
It's up there in the top 20.
I like Mr. King's humorous asides - too many to mention!
To quote a character from "Boston Legal", "He's a hoot!"
He has a very distinctive voice and it's pleasant to listen to him. He speaks very conversationally - like the two of you are in a room and he is telling you his story.
Yes - I enjoyed the narrator's voice.
I read this in paperback many times in the 1970's and again in the 90's. I guess the story just resonated with me...it takes me back to my days in elementary school when we had the nuclear fallout placards on buildings you were to go to if a nuclear war broke out and we children had to practice huddling in the hallways of our school. That is a very vivid memory I have from the 60's.
I can't pick one.
Very happy that Audible has put this into their library, and Will Patton did a first-rate job of narrating the story.
I love reading stories that introduce me to other cultures and this one fits the bill. The characters are totally believable and the descriptions of their life in Africa - as seen through the various character's eyes - worked for me. Highly recommended.
