Publisher's Summary

Gold fever swept the world in 1897. The chance for untold riches sent thousands of dreamers on a perilous trek toward their fortunes, failures, or deaths. Follow four English aristocrats and their Irish servant as they misguidedly haul their dreams across cruel Canadian terrain toward the Klondike gold fields.

    "Disappointed"
    What did you like best about Journey? What did you like least?

    Historical relevance and cultural discriptions were true Michener. However, the story was abreviated and the characters undeveloped. The narration was boringly mundane and without inflection. So glad to have finished it and will take the reviews more seriously before my next audio purchase.


    Would you recommend Journey to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. My friends would not listen past the first half hour of this narration. They could read a travel book of the gold rush era and find it more exciting.


    What didn’t you like about Larry McKeever’s performance?

    This narrator is like listening to a monotone professor in a required class...ugh!


    Did Journey inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, avoid narrations by Larry McKeever.
