Great voice, easy to follow between characters. 1,000,000 times better than the movie, which was fantastic!

Great story, well written, and very well done in this audiobook.
If you loved the movie, well, this is many times better.
My 3 words would be: hilarious, bleak, and inebriated...with cynical, narcissistic, verbose,and brilliant not far behind.
I like cynical people that use humor as a vehicle to negotiate through the daily grind. Miles is an overachiever in this department and I can't stop listening.
Outstanding reader...nails both Miles and Jack to a tee. Couldn't be a better reader for these two characters with the exceptions of the actors themselves.
There is already a brilliant movie...I don't think I could improve on anything they've done.
I'm about to listen to this book for the 3rd time in a month. It's the only book that I've made my wife and friends listen to over drinks socially on more than one occasion. Absolutely brilliant, hilarious, and sad all at once...for me it's perfection. I keep checking back to see if there will be a reading of "Vertical" the authors follow-up and continued story of the characters. Please have Scott Brick read it!!
I saw the movie, but should I read the book? After seeing that 54 reviewers at Amazon.com gave the book 4 out of 5 stars, I didn't see any reason why not. I can't be more happy that I did, what a terrific read! A joy from beginning to end.
This book is about real people working through real issues of life, I'm sorry to see other reviewers say such dark things about the characters; we learn when we hold up a mirror to ourselves -- and laugh a little!
While there are a few funny moments in Sideways, the story about two pathological liars is a sad one, depicting a reckless culture of drinking and driving. Except for a few knocks here and there, neither pays a price for his deceptions and stealing. If there were a hint that some of this was wrong, it could be a rewarding tale.
What a huge waste of time...no story in the first 7 hours just a failed attempt to use as many big words and silly wine connoisseur jargon. I have never disliked a book that much
I am a literary fiction buff. A great read makes me happy. I love photography and Canon equipment. I write one or two sentence reviews.
The book, not so much. The men were so dishonorable, arrogant. Made humans look bad as a species.
While the movie follows the book to a certain extent, there's really a lot of differences between them. Which is to be expected. I enjoyed the book far more than I enjoyed the movie, and the movie is one of my favorites. I am a wine person; Pinot Noir is my favorite, too, so this book really means something to me. However, this is really a character study, not just a book about wine. The book emphasizes that, although a lot of my friends thought the movie was about wine. It really wasn't.
Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators. That made the book even that more enjoyable. The book, the use of the language, and the narration makes me want to buy the physical version and actually read it. A well deserved five stars.
