    Story
    Where does Cabin Pressure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's not a book, it's a radio program with an audience. Funny dialogue.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The actors are wonderful


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Like many others, I downloaded it because of Benedict Cumberbatch and it also stars Roger Allam that I just watched in the "Endeavor" TV series as a detective. Everyone's performances are very good and with endearing characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes ! Cleaning the house !


    Any additional comments?

    May not be for everyone. It's very silly British humor.

    Story
    (381)

    November 1958, New York. Into the rarefied atmosphere of wealth and tradition at the National Horse Show in Madison Square Garden comes the most unlikely of horses—a drab white former plow horse named Snowman—and his rider, Harry de Leyer. They were the longest of all longshots—and their win was the stuff of legend.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Eighty-Dollar Champion the most enjoyable?

    I was completely unfamiliar with "Snowman", I loved learning about this wonderful horse.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Eighty-Dollar Champion?

    My favorite moment is when the horse shows his former owner ...."Look ! I am so much more, I can do some much more than you ever could have guessed"


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book to listen to when I was feeling a little discouraged about life. While listening, I went online to lookup everything about "Snowman" and to look for pictures. This would make a great movie, done by the right director. Loved it.
