What made the experience of listening to Jamestown, the Buried Truth the most enjoyable?
Having been to Jamestown several times, it was great to get the chief archaeologist's insights and story. Despite the set backs, miscues, and disasters, the drive and vision of the people who settled is inspiring. To be sure, these were real, flawed individuals. For me, that makes the survival and ultimate success of the colony remarkable.
What other book might you compare Jamestown, the Buried Truth to and why?
I have read the available primary sources, which are available online. But as Kelso correctly points out, the written record is thin. I also plan to listen to The Savage Kingdom (available on audible!), but haven't yet.
Which scene was your favorite?
The portions dealing with Gosnold.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, there is much detailed information to digest. In fact I am on my second listening.
Any additional comments?
Another reviewer pointed out that the maps and diagrams are needed. I suggest going to historicjamestowne(dot)org for further information.

I love reading and learning about Jamestown since it was such a debacle that no one from America will ever talk about it. However, after listening to this title I learned that it wasn't a complete debacle as I was initially taught. This was a very interesting listen and I really enjoyed the narrator too. I could definitely see this being turned into a TV documentary if it hasn't been already and if it is, I just hope they use the same narrator because he was great and make this that much more interesting!
