Some audio books come and go. The portrayal of the tragedy of the Morro Castle is suspenseful enough that it is worth listening to again.
Well researched, new perspectives on historical cases, easily understandable. (yeah, more than 3 words, I know......but I liked it!)
The reader is also the author/instructor, so she knows the material very well.
It wouldn't have the author's obvious enthusiasm for the topic that comes thru in her narrative style.
This is instructive, not fictional. But I would consider taking the Professor's course, if possible.
The book is interesting, covering famous and unknown murders/murderers. Many of them I had read in books, but there were some that were "new" to me.
I have no doubt that it is difficult to sit and read outloud for multiple hours, but I keep wondering if no one actually edited this. The accent isn't an issue, but the mispronunciations of name & places is very distracting. Plus there are many areas where the reader hesitates & corrects himself (which is fine, but didn't anyone think to cut these parts out?) I've listened to hundreds of audio books in my life,but this has to be the worst editing I've ever heard. I don't blame the reader, just whoever put this on the market before it was finished.
