    Story
    "The racing narration is an impediment."
    Would you try another book from Damian Cox and Michael P. Levine and/or Allen O'Reilly?

    Yes. .if it were narrated by someone else


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Allen O'Reilly?

    The narration is so fast , so Manic as to make it incomprehensible


    Could you see Thinking Through Film being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes but with a different narrator and a slower pace. This narration is ridiculous and so fast the ideas begin to seem like gibberish.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to a lot of audiobooks. This was the worst in terms of speed.
