    "Interesting Book but Meh!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book was on a list of must reads... maybe it was just the narrator but this was a bit of a struggle. One day i might try again with a physical copy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The parrot.... In fact I think Castaway's Wilson was a more interesting character than Man-Friday.


    Any additional comments?

    While Alan Munro has a nice voice to listen to (Thus having more than 1 star), I found his cadence to be annoying at best. It seemed like this was his first read though and he might as well have been reading a shopping list with lack of passion he put into this.
