The book was read with such haste it was completely ruined for both my wife and myself, this caused us to abandon listening to the book after a matter of minutes.
I would definately NOT recomend this book to any one.

Did they give this guy a deadline? He spoke so fast if you were distracted for just a few seconds you missed a lot. I slowed the speed down for my iPod, and some chapters were tolerable. Then he used a normal speaking speed, I had to change back. Next chapter he was rushing again. I got tired of dealing with it so I never finished listening for more than a couple of hours. I think this would have been a great book if not for the narration.

The story was very good. One of those stories where you know the ending going in, but still enjoy the ride.
The audio editing on the other hand was awful. The narrator's voice would change significantly mid-sentence. It was obvious the recordings were done on different days and no attempt was made to seamlessly stitch the recordings together. Also the speed kept changing. The narrator would read fast, then slow, then fast again. The pitch of his voice changed accordingly, and can someone explain why, after 13 chapters Colonel Bullworth suddenly starts speaking with a heavy Boston accent??
There were several passages that Mr. Follett must have gotten straight from Perot - they were soooo self serving and mushsy, he was almost a God!
Would have given it a higher rating if the audio editing was done better. All-in-all, worth the listen.
