    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A complete rewrite. I thought it was going to be a short story about a messenger in a war who goes to extremes to do his duty. Instead I get some tripe about how employers are mistreated and employees are worthless.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elbert Hubbard again?

    No.


    Did the narrator do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    There really aren't characters in this book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Message to Garcia?

    From the beginning to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't believe this is one of the bestselling books of all time.
