"Meier I had more time (or brain capacity right now) to listen/read more.

"The "re-enacted" conversations are driving me nuts, as is the narrator, but at least I can listen at 1.5x speed. The story not being told chronologically is also a little annoying. But the material is interesting even if it's obvious that the author is quite biased." Aug 21, 2014 07:56PM

Listened to the UK edition this time. I really do like Stephen Fry's narration. It's different from Jim Dale's and while I like Dale's narration, Fry's seems to work better for me. At some point, I'll have to listen to the rest of the UK books...but ...more
