No Mel

Guess I thought audio book about Mel Blanc and 1000 voices might actually include his voice. Instead a poorly assembled, repetitive rambling account of his life was dramatized full of info about discography that only a collector could appreciate. Attempts to sound like WB characters fell short as well, Putty Tat is how it is said btw. Will find original source material to hear the one and only Mel and continue to enjoy the cartoons that made him one of s kind

Narrator was Terrible

Would you try another book written by Ben Ohmart or narrated by Fred Frees?

Not sure

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well Mel Blanc Duh

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator was atrocious, he constantly sounded surprised or excited. He had a monotone voice that stayed at the same excited sound, didn't matter what he was reading

Any additional comments?

I gave this book a good go. Gave up half way through chapter three as the narrator was so darn annoying. Which I think is a real shame because I believe the book would have been interesting otherwise.
