Yes, I imagine I'll listen to this one again. Lithgow is a wonderful storyteller and as someone who's done theater all my life, I found the content fascinating and timeless. I don't think, however, you'd need any background in theater to enjoy it immensely.
Well, John Lithgow, of course!
He's a wonderful actor, which makes his narration incredibly engaging. And, of course, he is very much invested in his own experiences, which only adds to the pleasure of the listener.
Yes! Thank heavens I had a long car ride which allowed me to listen to it all the way there and all the way home. I still was so sad when it was over. I didn't want it to end.
Truly one of my most favorite Audible books ever!
I love listening to people read to me, but after listening to one and a half of the Kane Chronicles books, I have to say these two readers are awful. I am sorry to say it, but I absolutely cannot listen to them anymore. Here's why:1. They base the brother and sister's relationship almost entirely on sarcasm and bickering--with little or no affection nor regard for each other. I teach high school theater and I raised 4 kids. No one knows more about listening to siblings bicker and be nasty to each other, but if there is no clear affection between them, they are people I'm not interested in. 2. They underestimate young readers by overdoing it. I tell my acting students to do it big, but this is too big. They are caricatures. I started by reading Riordan's Percy Jackson series. I'll now read the Kane series and try to get the sound of those thoroughly unlikeable, whining people out of my head.
Calm down. You need to make it real and honest. The humor is there. You don't have to underline it.
