I had read this book before and had been meaning to re-read it. When I saw it for sale on audible, I had to snag it! This was such a fun listen!
My Thoughts on The Great Train Robbery by Michael Crichton, narrated by Michael Kitchen
I love that this book starts with a bit of a history lesson, explaining how important the railroad was as well as what the economy was like. From there, we set off into a very interesting storyline that bounces between history lessons, what lead up to the robbery, and what happened after the robbery
The narrator was lovely! Michael Kitchen has a great voice and he did a wonderful job with the recording.
However I will say, I found this one very difficult to keep up with. I had much better luck with the print version, but this was still fun to listen to! I just found that I got a little confused overall trying to keep up with the transitions. There were so many parts of the story that I absolutely loved, but others I just wasn’t following so I kept losing focus.
So would I recommend this audio version? Yes! Though I would recommend it more to those that have already read the book or for those that enjoy reading the text while listening at the same time.
Thanks for reading!
