    "Waist Of Time!"

    this is a waist of money unless you love to hear people read one page and the talk for the rest of the track pretending that they are smart! why they call this an audio book i do not know! there is no point to this at all if your looking for an audiobook the sample track is fooling you!

    "Enlightening Discussion of The Classic"

    Well, it's not a book. It's about a book. Nice readings and good discussion. The questions aren't always audible, though. Stephen was great. Wanted more of him!

    Thanks for this pleasant discussion.

    "not the book, its a discussion"
    Would you try another book from Symphony Space and/or the narrators?

    no


    Would you ever listen to anything by Symphony Space again?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    the description was sorely lacking before you buy the book, I thought I was getting a reading of the actual book.

    "Difficult to listen to story"
    What would have made Thalia Book Club: 'To Kill a Mockingbird' 50th Anniversary Celebration - Readings, Discussion and Audience Q&A better?

    A way of skipping the extra and listening to the story


    Would you recommend Thalia Book Club: 'To Kill a Mockingbird' 50th Anniversary Celebration - Readings, Discussion and Audience Q&A to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, because I wanted to hear the story.

    Story
    "A bitter but necessary pill to swallow"

    A classic story of good and evil and the elephant in the room. Why can't we name the sin that has no name? Why don't we see that the emperor's new clothes leave him naked?
    In movie form it was a classic. In print or voice it reads thicker and more fragrant. I can feel the pulse of the words that issue from the characters, the meaning, the regret.
    This for me was a significant impetus to involve myself in some form in the civil rights movement of the 60's. I knew that the elephant exposed in the South would lead to the elephant exposed elsewhere.

    "Read Comments First"
    Would you try another book from Symphony Space and/or the narrators?

    I learned a lesson from this. Read other people's thoughts first. Its chapter one in some book club reading. Not expecting this at all. Change the title from "UNABRIDGED" to "ABRIDGED". Waste of money.

    "ONLY Chapter ONE"
    What would have made Thalia Book Club: Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird 50th Anniversary Celebration better?

    Would be nice if there was a description of some kind that this is only chapter one.
