Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
no I found this book not what I thought it was going to be, maybe I should have expected it from the title.
What will your next listen be?
something funny, or another history book.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
there was nothing wrong with it, just not for me sorry
If this book were a film would you go see it?

This book can be summed up in one word: WOW!
Any problems you think you have just pale in comparison to what the Donner and Reed emigrant party suffered through in the winter of 1846-47. This story will haunt you and can almost be life changing. It really puts priorities in perspective.
My only complaint with this audio book would be in the sound editing of the narrator's recording. Pauses (short gaps of silence) were apparently added between many of the paragraphs breaking up their natural flow. They're a tad annoying and unnecessary.
The narrators reading was otherwise most excellent.
I loved the book!

This is an excellent history with interesting stories and interesting characters. It is VERY detailed. Some may find the detail tedious, I found everything interesting. I have read other histories of these events, and this was the most detailed as well as the most touching.
