    "Terrific book, terrible narration"
    Where does A Season in Time rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have not listened to many sports books yet, but this is an excellent one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was a very detailed and engaging look back at an NHL season I remember quite fondly from when I was growing up. I remembered several things I haven't thought of in years and learned quite a bit as well.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Maxon’s performances?

    Only if I was sure that he knew the source material he was speaking about first-hand. It is very, very, very clear that Mr. Maxon was not very knowledgeable on hockey as several names were mispronounced throughout the book. At times it was unintentionally hilarious, but plenty of other times it was grating and painful to listen to. I cannot believe that the audiobook was allowed to be released with so many errors. Mr. Maxon's voice and delivery were smooth and pleasant though (to the point where he almost sounded automated) and I wouldn't mind listening to another of his performances, but I would prefer something fictional where I did not know the characters ahead of time. This way I would not be so bothered by the potential butchering of historical names.


    Any additional comments?

    Narrative issues aside, I would gladly recommend this book to any hockey fan.

    "Excellent Book"

    I thought this book was great. Such a fun listen about an excellent time for the sport I love. Listening about Gretzky, Doug Gilmour, Grant Fuhr, Mario and all the other players I grew up watching and loving was incredible. That said, the narrator had a great storytelling voice but I'm not sure he was able to pronounce one name correctly, which is really annoying.

    "Story is OK if you can get past the narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Todd Denault does a fine job of recreating a memorable NHL season. It was a good reminder of how the game was played by some of its greatest stars.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Maxon’s performances?

    The narrator needed to do his homework on how to pronounce names of the key players. It's clear he didn't even try. Miss a name here or there, OK. But every name? Some names had multiple mispronounciations over the course of the book. He even pronounced a ".500" record" as "point 5-0-0 record." This performance ruined any possible enjoyment of this book and is an insult to fans and the author.


    Was A Season in Time worth the listening time?

    It could have been with a narrator who cared to do a passable job with the text.
