    Story
    "The start of my love for audio books started here."
    If you could sum up Ticonderoga in three words, what would they be?

    Danger Adventure honor


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved learning the history of that area of the country, I learned about an area of our great nation that I didnt know much about.Friendships were formed from unlikely sources.Human spirit proved to be what formed our country, sacrifices were made by all.


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

    I have listened to several Colonial Radio Theatre productions, This one is my favorite, but thats only because it is the one that got me started listening, CRT has several exciting productions that I love and they are coming out with more all the time.


    If you could take any character from Ticonderoga out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Captain William Taylor, (Jerry Robbins) As Captain Taylor Id love to hear storys of his adventures, As Jerry Robbins Id love to know how CRT started.And who and what inspired him to start CRT.


    Any additional comments?

    Very dramatic keeps you on the edge of your seat never a dull moment.Well written and performed by the whole cast.

    Story
    "The French and Indian War comes alive!"
    If you could sum up Ticonderoga in three words, what would they be?

    Lock, Stock, and Barrel. Ticonderoga is a perfect introduction to the French & Indian War.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ticonderoga?

    One of the most memorable moments in Ticonderoga is when the boy Adam realizes what is in the well, and how it effects his life. And how lucky he is to be in the company of men who understand. Brilliantly done CRT.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Captain William Taylor performed by Jerry Robbins is my favorite. I can most identify with the character's leadership and how he handles situations and men. I'm a former military man and Mr. Robbins did a thorough and realistic job of portraying his character.


    If you could rename Ticonderoga, what would you call it?

    Woods Dark and Furious.


    Any additional comments?

    This CRT production has a high replay factor. Excellent for long trips, either in the car or on foot.

    Story
    "So Horrible I Had to Stop Listening"
    What would have made Ticonderoga better?

    The story and acting were all horrible. It felt like an after school special version of an audible book. It included silly dialogue and stilted acting.


    What could Jerry Robbins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have less ridiculous dialogue that was less like a bad 1970's tv special.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of the narrators?

    The actors playing the part seemed to have an odd style. This was not really so much a narration as an acting with sound effects thrown in. It was jarringly poorly done.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Ticonderoga?

    I prefer a story read by talented actors to something acted out as a TV story without visuals.
