Good Book, Great Narration.

What made the experience of listening to The Road to Amistad the most enjoyable?

I agree that is a tough book to review. It's not like anything I've read before yet it kept me turning virtual pages anxious to find out what would become of Ken, his family and the other real life a characters that were introduced in Detour From Normal. I would recommend this book and definitely suggest getting audible version so you too can enjoy The Road to Amistad and the remarkable narration of Michael Rubino. I'll be waiting for next book by Ken Dickson.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the narration done by Michael Rubino. Michael did an amazing job with giving each character a voice of their own, with accents, tones, and language that made it easy to discern who was speaking even before the writing told you.

Have you listened to any of Michael Rubino’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to Michael's other stories but I would love to listen to his future books. His easy going and relaxed voice was enjoyable without being at all monotone. He gave voices to each character that made is fun to listen to and easy to understand who was speaking.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to any future narrations by Michael Rubino. I really enjoyed his style.
