    "Very listenable"
    Where does I Wonder as I Wander rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I like non-fiction. This audiobook ranks in the top 10 I have heard. The narration is excellent, and the story moves from one interesting story to another.


    What other book might you compare I Wonder as I Wander to and why?

    I was reminded of my recent listen, Winston Churchill. The time frame was similar, which is to me a worthy era of history. I did not know anything about Langston Hughes. This audiobook broadened my perspective.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I have not listened to any of the narrator`s other performances. He did well in conveying the voice of Langston Hughes.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Harlem was in vogue.


    Any additional comments?

    The story prompted me to frequently wonder, ``What drove Langston Hughes to wander as he did??` This was a great study in character.
