Do NOT buy this flawed audio book!
on February 15, 2001
Do yourself a favor and pass on this one. While Michener's novel is incredibly wonderful, this audio book does not do it justice. Having read the book shortly before I bought the audiocassette so that my family could listen while on a driving vacation, I know that there are horrific gaps in the plotlines. This might be excusable, considering the length of the novel, but the taping quality is very bad. There are many distracting gaps, often as if it was edited in mid-sentence. At one point in the middle, another narrator even takes over for a sizable reading before Peter Graves returns!
This is by far the worst audio book I have ever heard.
