Pretty good story, but the narrators voice was dull, boring and extremely hard to hear. His voice was either too low or too high.
Not a bad story for the price, but the performance could have easily made this into a more engaging experience.

Omg the voice was sooo boring! I finally finished,but with screeching pain. The book could have been so much simpler and more efficient. Topics would drag on. I feel like the information was useful, somewhat, but the author could have narrowed down the information in a better to understand and simpler manner. Overall you learn a thing or two from this book, but it's not the holy book of retirement, the way the author tried to make it sound like to be.

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis - that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over 40 years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

I'm absolutely at awe of this book. How real it was. How true. Despite being from a different cultural background, this book struck me as something that i can relate to on so many levels that my own words cannot describe. This is one of the very few books that I have listened to that i can say was absolutely amazing. Thank you for being so brutally honest, and writing such an amazing an amazing book.

Too many ideas about what humans are and where they are going. Really interesting points where brought up, but often with very opinionated and unorganized matter. Compare to Mr. Harari's previous book, homo sapiens a brief history of mankind, this book was not as good.
