Trivia night galore

I had to make some trivia questions for a friend and this book did the trick. Just made the facts into questions and worked a treat.

"Facts" without support may not be facts

This is purely trivia. There is no support given for the trivia. Fine if you want to memorize and win games, but not so great if you want to learn something. Narrator consistently mispronouced nuclear. I also wondered if the author's grammar was poor or if the narrator didn't always read what was written.

Stop counting facts!!!

What is the point of telling the number of the fact? Is it to make the book lasr longer? Approx 30% of the content is information about the number of the next fact. Total waste of money!!!

Interesting, but too quick!

There were a lot of interesting facts in this book, but they were presented so quickly that many of them left more questions than answers. Many of these facts were literally only one sentence long, like they were trying to rush through them as quickly as they could. I wish there were half as many facts in this book and they spent twice as much time talking about them. We certainly could have used more details, would have made the facts more interesting.
The narrator was fine, although the looping music in the background did get redundant. I wish they changed the music a little bit every few chapters.
Overall this was an interesting book, but I'd recommend buying it when it's on sale or finding a faces audiobook that has a little bit more meat and potatoes in the details department. This book would work great as a bathroom reader in print form, but as an audiobook it just feels too fast-paced.

This won't make you win at trivia

This is a disjointed bunch of facts. It seems like at least 1/3 of the facts are so irrelevant, they would never be trivia questions. I also had a problem with the organizational structure of this book. It jumped around. It was not really chronological. I learned a lot more listening to other books like this.

Only good for a single listen. IF you that bored.

Several "facts" were repeated throughout. Narrator had a rough go with the content provided to them, decent enough speaking voice.

Some I needed to know others not lol

To he fair its a good book mixed with plenty of interesting facts. My only gripe is that he says the number 1 through to 1144 at the beginning of each factual tale and its a little off putting for some reason haha. Overall, a solid 8 outta 10 from me

Cool

I think some of them were very hard to believe so didn't take all of the i information as facts. I would like to hear more facts about anatomy, animals, plants and the universe
