I have not read the printed version - I can see how it would be useful, especially for the exercises.
No other book.
I would have asked him not to give people accents.
It is more of an informational book than a moving book - there are some great parts with helpful information.
I had the sense that I was along with the author during his research.
The surprises - I never knew what to expect.
Yes, it would still be interesting for me after listening many times because there is so much to think about. It is much more than an story about a prison experience.
The descriptions allowed me to understand the experiences he endured and to know what he felt about the experiences.
All of the character representations were done well - I was able to tell the people apart very easily.
Yes, when he was caught - I didn't breathe.
Yes, I would recommend this book to my friends who share my interest in survival planning and to friends who enjoy a good adventure story. The story is very entertaining and includes many of the items we use when we plan to spend time in the woods, there are also items I plan to buy as a result of listening to this book. Some people are distracted by the level of detail - survival enthusiasts will be thrilled.
The most memorable moment for me was in the beginning when Morgan grabbed his gear and hit the road - I knew then that this would be a good story and I wasn't disappointed.
When Duke Fontaine portrayed Morgan, he sounded the way I think Morgan would sound - no nonsense. He also portrayed the other characters in such a unique way that I never had to stop and think about who was speaking.
The ending is very moving and very satisfying - I plan to listen to the other parts of the series soon.
I have a greater understanding of the similarities and differences between how people lived in ancient civilizations and how we live now. I could listen to this several times.
