Narrators voice sounded dull to begin with but is, in retrospect, very well pitched. Calm and detached through this intimate portrait of the Stones. Keith Richards description in the opening chapters was enough to get me hooked and more memorable writing throughout - "Micks hands waving like undersea flowers". Didn't want it to end.

What made the experience of listening to The True Adventures of the Rolling Stones the most enjoyable?
The author painted wonderful pictures of the times!
What did you like best about this story?
I didn't want it to end! I especially appreciated the way the author really made Brian Jones an active part of the book, which is so important.
What aspect of Adrian Mulraney’s performance would you have changed?
This particular narrator was not a good choice for the material. An Englishman reading a book written from the perspective of a man from Waycross, GA isn't a good fit, unless he's imitating Mick Jagger's cockney accent. Unfortunate choice for such a cool book with great moments and characters that required a little more southern flavor at times.

What was most disappointing about Stanley Booth’s story?
The jumping between times made it hard to follow.
How could the performance have been better?
This is the worst Audio Book I have bought. The intonation used by the reader often made no sense of the text an really spoiled the listening experience. I suspect the story is more enjoyable than my experience of it.
