Audible Editor Reviews

At the Indy 500, exchanges between drivers off the track can be as explosive as those on the track, and Tony Carnaghi's lively and animated reading of Jack Arute and Jenna Fryer's book transports the listener to the front row of the action.

A single wrong turn, improper pass, or blown tire can spell defeat in the race, but they can also easily result in peril.  Arute and Fryer expertly capture the drama and volatility of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" with this collection of riveting stories, and Carnaghi elevates their prose with a performance that makes it difficult to stop listening after hitting play.

    "Very good!"

    I thought the stories were very good but the performance was terrible. The narrator mispronounced so many things I could not believe it. He pronounced Dan Wheldon's name "wheel-don." He also kept saying U-S-A-C instead of U-SAC. I guess the producers of the audio book do not know anything about Indy car racing.
