Would much prefer to read the book

Found the person voicing this to be awful, very sleezy, completely ruined what otherwise seems to be a good book. Hope to get it in book form some day but reluctant to pay again

Very poor book

Would you try another book written by Norman Mailer or narrated by Jeff Harding?

Not by Norman Mailer. Jeff Harding is normally quite a good reader but even he could not make this book enjoyable

What could Norman Mailer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have told a clear story about Marylin Monroe instead of the tedious one that he wrote.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Harding?

Nobody. Jeff Harding is a good reader provided he has a good book to read.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Marilyn: A Biography?

Less psychological tedium and more clear description.

Any additional comments?

I have listened to only part of the book and hope that I can return and buy something better.
