Great narration on an interesting original book.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Pushcart War to be better than the print version?

Yes, the narration makes this book a great listen. Mark Hammer, RIP, was terrific in this one.

Would you recommend The Pushcart War to your friends? Why or why not?

Not really. I've few friends that would appreciated as I did.

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

He makes it. Use a different narrator and I'd have returned the book straight away.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

NO
