An enjoyable experience
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, interesting stories, good narration.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. Great for passing the time while traveling.
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed the stories. Although I thought I knew about these people, I learned something new in each story. The narrator was excellent; not overdone so as to be tiring, but with just the right amount of intensity to add to the story.
