    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have read pretty much every Manson book written and found this to be primarily a rehash of previously published info.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Definitely, the info about Manson's early life was the highlight of the book. I liked the stories of his childhood and how he developed into the man he became. The history lessons about the sixties took up way too much time. I guess for younger readers it would have set the scene, but for me, it slowed down the pace of the book.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I thought he was a boring narrator, kind of like he was just reading words with no emotion. His mispronounciation of names was annoying, especially Bugliosi.


    Was Manson worth the listening time?

    I thought the book was very long, but I am glad I got through it.


    Any additional comments?

    The back stories about Dennis Wilson, Terry Melcher and Greg Jacobson were a much appreciated addition.

  • Tilt-a-Whirl

    There isn't much fun in the sun when a billionaire real estate tycoon is found murdered on the Tilt-a-Whirl at a seedy seaside amusement park in the otherwise quiet summer tourist town of Sea Haven. John Ceepak, a former MP just back from Iraq, has just joined the Sea Haven police department. The job offer came from an old Army buddy who hoped to give Ceepak at least a summer's worth of rest and relaxation to help him forget the horrors of war. Instead, Ceepak will head up the murder investigation.

    Where does Tilt-a-Whirl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think this was a great start to the series. I usually prefer darker mysteries and this book mixed a good story with quirky characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tilt-a-Whirl?

    I loved the interactions with the old hippies, especially Gladys. The accent was priceless.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't heard any of Jeff Woodman's other performances but will keep listening to this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book and characters definitely held my interest. If time permitted, I could have easily spent a whole day listening.
