I probably wouldn't buy another book from Mr. Roll. Especially if he narrates it. His voice was pleasant at first but, he tended to drone on.
Mr. Roll appreciated the support of his sponsors for his endeavors understandibly but, he unabashedly promoted their products. Again, he should use another narrator.
Perhaps he should have taken time off of his narration to refresh himself.
While he promoted his "high power vegan diet", he never used it in his ultra-effort attempts. There was always some reason he had to use "junk foods" even for the completion of his "Epic5" which was to be the culmination of his efforts he had to use "junk". So, I kind of call his diet a bit of a farce. The last of the book could have been left off after the end of his "Epic 5", since the last was all about his diet.
I would have asked for a refund if I had been able to spend time with internet access. As it was, I downloaded the book at the begining of a trip and was unable to get internet until a week later. So, I ended up finishing the book, which became a bit of a slog.
The content of the story and the life of this person is truly inspirational.
I can't think of any world War II story I've read that compares
Excellent voice. His ability to change characters in the dialog is very entertaining.
The experiences this man had in the prison camps of Japan are incredible. It is unfathomable that humans can act this way.
A must read for anyone who wants to know the strength of the human spirit
