Procrastinator's Best Tool

I had an entire unit of work and an essay on this book due tonight and I hadn't even read the book. Enter this review at 1.75x speed and 5 hours later all of my work is done. $5 is a small price to pay for how much this audio book review/synopsis saved my butt. Worth every penny.

Good as a recap, but not much more

would have liked more in depth analysis of themes presented in the book. This was mostly just a summary of what happened, with a few mentions of the nazis and Soviet at places in the book where tje connection is obvious

why every chapter twice?

I like the program but I don't get it why every single chapter has to be repeated twice?

I like the narration and it's format.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I'm not certain.

Have you listened to any of Mark Young’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He does. The format is excellent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Nothing at all.

Any additional comments?

A must have study guide for fans of 1984.
