I was unsure about listening to a biography but Walt's life was plenty interesting to keep me riveted. I listened all day and also into the night until I finished. It is that good. Of course, the story is most interesting once it gets into his animating and creation of Disneyland. I was completely shocked by the reported reception of his classic animated feature films by the public. My one complaint is that I want more detail in his creating Disneyland. Perhaps, I will need to read another bio or some writings specifically geared toward Disneyland history.
I recommend this book to anyone remotely interested in Walt as a man, leader, business owner, or creative genius. You will also love this if you love his films and Disneyland.
I must disclose that Interview With the Vampire is among my favorite novels. I love the character Lestat and I thought this book provided an interesting look into his life, as well as some information about Louie that you would not expect. It reminded me of my days studying literature and learning that you cannot necessarily trust the narrator.
It all went to pot when it begins to turn so evil that I could no longer listen to it. If you are wondering what I mean by this, remember that I do love Interview and I am a huge fan of creepy works but I cannot tolerate repeated chanting of "satan" and other such ridiculous happenings within this novel. Most who are familiar with Anne Rice are aware that she was previously Atheist, turned Christian, turned Humanist. I am sure her search and journey contributed to the anti-Christian and wholely demonic aspects of this book and I wish I had known prior to supporting it. The least I can do is warn those who do not wish to support this or be exposed to it.
Everything, the story and narration are flawless. This was my first Audible purchase and the experience hooked me. I did not want it to end, so I listened to it again!
