Amazing detail with plenty of new insight into the Beatle story. Even though it's long, I can't wait for the next installation.
Enjoyed this selection very much. King is an amazing talent and her narration was excellent. I've read the hardcover but still enjoyed going through it again on Audiobook.
Interesting story with some insight into Pryor's life and times but thin in many places. Lots of repetition of Pryor's classic routines. I agree that he was a special talent but the genius term was thrown around ad nauseam throughout the book.
I waited for this book expecting it would be like O'reilly's book on Lincoln. It's basically a recitation of facts on the Kennedy assassination that would be useful to a junior high student. No insight and absolutely nothing new. I don't know when I've been more disappointed in a selection. The only redeeming quality in this audiobook is the narration of Edward Herrmann, who I think is the best.
Never again Mr. O'reilly. What a rip-off!
I've read most of Feinstein's work and I'm a fan but very disappointed with the content of this book. It's more about the author's struggles to get his ideas accepted by bosses, colleagues, subjects, etc. I would not have purchased this title if I had known the content. I was expecting in-depth interviews with the "greats of the game" not discussions on how the author was granted "full access". On the plus side, the narration is first rate.
If you're looking for a book on John Feinstein, then this is your book. If you're looking for "One on One Behind The Scenes" I'd look somewhere else.
Not sure why but I found myself hitting fast forward a number of times through this audiobook. It just got a little tedious with the minute details of Taylor's diva life. I'm a fan of Elizabeth Taylor...but not this book.
I knew very little of the author but thoroughly enjoyed this book. Dropped names is an apt title as the number of well known people involved in Langella's life is staggering. Will listen to this again soon.
Really enjoyed this audiobook and the story of Janis Ian. Highly recommend to anyone with an interest in singer/songwriters.
While the story was interesting I found it difficult to listen to the narration after a while.
I am not a fan of Bill O'Reilly but I enjoyed his narration of the story. Tons of detail that I haven't read anywhere else. Definite recommendation.
