THE YEAR OF READING DANGEROUSLY
by Andy Miller | Read by Andy Miller

With a charming sense of humor and an appealing accent, Andy Miller recounts a twelve-month return to the joys of reading. His voice is engaging, and his performance lively and capable. There are many moments of laugh-out-loud wit and other moments of thought-provoking reflection. In between those, however, the pace is slow. Miller's love of footnotes does not lend itself to the audio format—a startling "ding" indicates each note, some of which seem gratuitous—and he can get bogged down in minutiae. Happily, once Miller gets into the actual experience of reading, the audiobook takes wing. Bibliophiles will enjoy meandering through the titles and adding their own as they immerse themselves in Miller's delightful performance. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
