    Story
    "A wild and enjoyable listen."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes if they enjoyed listening to bird sounds and didn't need to know what sounds they were hearing.


    What other book might you compare Wild World to, and why?

    Similar to wild Britain but it's obvious that some of the soundscapes are in the rainforest and in other countries.


    What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    There isn't a narrator so this question is once again irrelevant and stupid.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, though I didn't.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I enjoyed this book but would love to know all the sounds I was hearing.

    "No tracks, just one long track"
    Any additional comments?

    The content is great. But this is not like a CD. It is just one long track without any way to move to the next track. Don't bother with it. If you want the content, buy the CD.
