Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely, if they had an interest in subject matter.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ballad of Bob Dylan?

I was touched by some of the more personal anecdotes of Mr Dylan's often gentle and generous behavior towards others. That's really silly, i know, but I was touched.

What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Uh .. the ability to

Any additional comments?

Recommend to Dylan fans. Very enjoyable.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Still listening to this book so will update this review, possibly, when i'm done, but wanted to comment about narration. The intonation is very good and the narrator handles the subject matter well, but i keep listening to him and thinking, this man is not really real. His voice sounds altered by a sound board or something! It reminds me of a bad reality show. It's almost like it's a homogenized voice created in the studio for audio. Sorry Mel!

Would you recommend Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat to your friends? Why or why not?

Eh - you know most of these books could be boiled down to Cliff Notes, and save us all a lot of time. I'm also not a huge fan of the Malcolm Gladwell analysis of society, which this book definitely mimicks. It's okay.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The best narrators I've heard tend to be British OR come from television news. Otherwise it's hit or miss. This one sounds not quite like a human being.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No.
