No. In fact, since I so disliked the narrator, I couldn't even make it through part one. and , after several trials, gave up. Instead, I ordered the book from Amazon.
I've long been a fan of Melville's "Benito Cerino," a novella based on this fascinating historical incident. The author recounts the incident in detail, then expands the scope to include a novel view of the slave trade and traces the ultimately intertwining narratives of the story's three main characters.
Mr. Moreno reads in phrases, not sentences. Though he has a good voice, his delivery is halting and uncertain, resulting in strange (and quickly annoying) word emphasis and phrasing. Frankly, I've listened to hundred of audio books, and he is clearly the worst I've heard.
Yes, though I couldn't truly devote all those hours given the book's length. In truth, I couldn't take more than 20 minutes of the narration at a time.
