Worse Narration ever

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Going to return this as the narration is terrible and when he tries to do a jamaican accent it makes me want to vomit.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Norman Dietz?

Anyone who could at least sound like they cared about the story and half awake

Any additional comments?

Please Audible redo this book!

Banks on the money

If you could sum up Book of Jamaica in three words, what would they be?

Evocative, blending culture

What other book might you compare Book of Jamaica to, and why?

Bill Bryson’s African Diary - like Bill's work Banks' humour and poetic writing enables the reader to draw evocative pictures of the landscape and the people whose drama pervades through out.
