Would you consider the audio edition of The Unknown Mongol to be better than the print version?

I don't know as I never read the print version

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unknown Mongol?

The things the prospects had to do.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator kept putting on stupid voices when trying to do a womans voice and the main voice sounded like they were 15 years old.

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

Yes

Any additional comments?

Very entertaining book but there was a lot of the story left out, no mention of crime or how the mongols got there money

What disappointed you about Spanish Verb Drills Mega Bundle?

Very little explanation, didn't know what I was meant to be listening too, what tense I was in, the verbs were unclear and very little translations

Has Spanish Verb Drills Mega Bundle put you off other books in this genre?

Yes greatly, chapters are not laid out, this is meant to be a learning book

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Very little explanations

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Dissapointment

Any additional comments?

Very expensive considering you get no additional information, a 3 minute clip at the beginnnig of the book is not enough to showcase the book.

Nate Jackson’s Slow Getting Up is an unvarnished and uncensored memoir of everyday life in the most popular sports league in America - and the most damaging to its players - the National Football League. After playing college ball at a tiny Division III school, Jackson, a receiver, signed as a free agent with the San Francisco 49ers, before moving to the Denver Broncos. For six seasons in the NFL as a Bronco, he alternated between the practice squad and the active roster, eventually winning a starting spot - a short, tenuous career emblematic of the average pro player.

In this remarkable and controversial book, Alexander Fiske-Harrison follows the tracks of a whole bullfighting year in Spain. He trains and takes part in the sport himself. He gives us memorable portraits of bull-fighters and bulls, of owners, trainers and fans - of a whole country. Fiske-Harrison offers a fully rounded and involving portrait of an art as performed for centuries and of the arguments that dog it today.

If you could sum up Into the Arena in three words, what would they be?

A book that tries to give an insight into the role and the reason why bullfighting is such an integral part of Spanish history and traditions

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Disappointed the author didn't narrate the book himself, it took away from the value of the message he was trying to get across. Was this book just an extended blog and passed straight to the narrator.

What three words best describe Paul Thornley’s voice?

Slow, Prevaricate, exprobate

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

No

Any additional comments?

Some very interesting parts some drawn out parts, worth reading if you have an interest in bullfighting.
