A Looooong listen

Any additional comments?

I hadn't read these stories since I was a boy and somehow remembered them fondly. They are still in print so someone must think there is something in them. But, my Lord, how verbose Irving is. Thedescriptionsofeverythingjustwentonforeverandeeverseeminglywithoutendwithnoobviouspurposethantomakethestorylonger. Audible is courteous enough to offer me a refund since I rated it so lowly, but I went into this with my eyes wide open, so I'll wait for another major disappointment before I take advantage of that offer.
John MacDonald does a fine job with the narration. How he manages NOT to sound bored means he well earned his money.I have NO desire to listen to these stories again.
