Great story of an under-appreciated part of WWII
Not sure I liked the "echo"effect when the narrator was reading a direct quote. Unnecessary distraction
It has a wealth of information about the topic presented in an entertaining logical manner
She avoided doing too much in the way of accents, but still did a bit more than I like to hear.
I haven't checked the text of the book, but at one point she says "he wrote a one letter sentence". I am pretty sure it was supposed to say "he wrote a one sentence letter"
Would it KILL whoever parsed up this book into parts to wait the end of a chapter before breaking it up??? Seriously, several of the breaks happen in the middle of a conversation, when if someone had just waited 2 to 3 minutes they could have cut it at a chapter break and not seriously affected the size of the file. I'm surprised that whoever cut this up bothered waiting until the end of sentence before inserting the mindlessly repetitive warning about the reaching "the end of a part but not the end of the book" - while I am at it, why bother doing this more than once per book? If someone hasn't figured out the book is in multiple parts after the first break then they aren't going to get much out of the book to begin with.
The subject matter
Always enjoy Timothy Ferris narration
Near the end of the first part a female voice interrupts and says "End of side 4B" before the book continues.
meticulous, dramatic, gripping
The total failure of government to deal with a growing disaster with anything other than denial
"But..it's only influenza..."
Scott Brick's performance is spot on for a non-fiction work: steady, clear and with touch of drama at the right moment in the right amount.
Barely touched on the story. Hardly any information or background on the victims or the even the perpetrator. Feels rushed
It degenerated from a crime story into a halfhearted attack on the M'Naghten rules as applied to the insanity defense. What is the alternative?
Passable voice skills.
Take diction lessons, with an emphasis on not GASPING for breath after every third sentence.
I have listened to several books but this is the first time that I was made aware of EVERY SINGLE BREATH the narrator took during the reading.
