What made the experience of listening to Holler If You Hear Me the most enjoyable?

Learning more of Tupac's background and how he influenced and touched those around him.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Holler If You Hear Me?

Hard to pick just one.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

"Quote." Something someone says. "Unquote." It's terrible. Listen, I know it's a quote. You do not have to keep saying it. The story is fine and enjoyable, but I had to continually stop listening as this "Quote" "Unquote" thing drove me crazy.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Seeking the legend of Tupac through the eyes of someone who didn't know him meeting those who knew him best.

Any additional comments?

Quote. The narrator is the only thing to hate about this. Unquote.
