As a hockey fan, I was really pleased to get to listen to John Scott's great story in his own words. But the performance leaves one wanting. Kirby's diction is so precise that he sounds robotic and stilted, and he mispronounces many, many names, which is distracting and irritating. He should have made a point to get informed before his performance.

What did you like best about A Guy Like Me? What did you like least?
Not much insight into the world of Hockey. Feels like it’s been written with a ghost writer, but by far the worst thing about this is the guy reading it. He’s awful, I wish Scott had narrated it himself like Avery did with his. They guy narrating this is awful, if you are going to narrate a book about real people at the very least, learn how to say their names. I don’t think he pronounced one right. It’s read with very little energy or passion. This is the first time I have ever felt like this about an audiobook from audible. So far everything I have listened to has had excellent narrators, even if the book itself hasn’t been that great.
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
The last two chapters are the only two worth listening to to be honest, and, unlike better books like Dryden’s or Avery’s by Hockey players, this would only be of interest to Hockry fans.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kirby Heyborne?
