Narrator Tom Perkins's bright, lively voice moves this audiobook along at a nice pace and also underscores the optimism that many Americans felt in the year 1969. It does sound as though he is actually reading the book, rather than narrating a story. He can be halting at times and, despite his diction, sometimes seems to be reading individual words. Making the sentences flow and using more emotion would have improved the listening experience. Overall, though Perkins has terrific diction and uses his deep pitch and friendly tone to make the audiobook accessible to listeners. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
