    "This is not the full story."

    They only do excerptsfrom the book. I was hoping to hear the entire book. I wish the description explained that better.

    "This is NOT the story ..."

    If you are expecting the story don't buy this...it's not the story. It's a discussion of the story. Very disappointed.

    The system forced me to give it a minimum of 1 star, it is not worthy of even 1 star

    "Horribly Disappointed"

    The title misled me to believe this was an actual recording of To Kill a Mockingbird and that we were celebrating it's existence. Maybe I'm just stupid and got too excited. Disappointed that I didn't get to listen to the book and learned a lesson about slowing down and reading the description.

    "Zero stars was not a choice"

    I was looking for the book. Didn't realize that wasn't what I was getting until I saw 1.36 hours. Waste of 3 clicks, never mind the $4.

    "Wanted to hear the book"

    so I agree with those that have reviewed before me. I was hoping to hear the book during my commute and got a literature lesson. it was waste of my first credit and left a bad impression.

    "not what I expected"

    There is nothing from the book except commentary and literary analysis of the book. I do appreciate it, however, that was not how it was presented online.

    "Thalia Book Club: Harper Lee To Kill a Mockingbird"

    Please note this is not the actual book, but reading and discussions about the book. Seems that that is not available as an audio download, just CDs.
