Bad Bait & Switch
Gave this one star because I had to. Let me preface this review by saying I am a long-time Tim Conway fan. I find his work hilarious and I'm sure he is a nice person. What galls me is that I paid what I paid for this audiobook version of his autobiography only to find out that it is read by SOMEONE ELSE. Nowhere in the description of the product does it say TIm Conway doesn't narrate it.
The capper is the guy who does do the narration has a vocal tone, pacing and speaking style that is very irritating to me. I suffered through about 30 minutes & just gave it up as a bad job. Had I known in the beginning that Mr. Conway is MIA in the vocal department on this title, I would have just checked the book out at the library and not bothtered with the audio. BUYER BEWARE!!!
