Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The subject matter of the book is good and as expected. If you enjoy the areas covered then you won't be disappointment.
Any additional comments?
The narration though is terrible. Lots of really simple and obvious words just mis-pronounced but the most annoying the narrators habit of putting the inflection and pauses in the completely wrong part of sentences! It is so off putting!
It almost sounds like it's not a human reading the book but a computer "text to speech" system.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Mr Crain must have never heard many of these words, cities, names, pronounced. I had to rewind several times to get Hoboken.
Has Strange Mysteries turned you off from other books in this genre?
How could the performance have been better?
I guess this needed to be proof-listened. The mispronouncements are just like misspellings.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is an excellent book but the reader needs to improve his pronounciaton of several terms such Arimather instead of Arimithea, etc., ad naumeum. Other than these fopahs, the book is very pleasant to listen to.
