Don't read this review before reading the book.
I liked most of the book. I would have given it five stars, except once he got captured, it stagnated and failed to go anywhere.
I'm an avid audiobook listener, I'm lucky enough to have a job which allows me to pop headphones on and listen to whatever I choose throughout the day and for the past eight years it's been nothing but books. Generally speaking I'd stick to books narrated by its author wherever possible and it's taken me far too long to stumble upon Mr Prebble. This was my first title narrated him and what a delight it was. I now seek out other books he's worked his magic on and cannot recommend enough any title graced with his name. A true master of his craft able to stir up such emotion. Thank you Mr Prebble.
Interested in personal growth, productivity, fantasy, sci-fi, spy stories, music and dogs!
This story is more about the development of thinking....how we perceive right and wrong. I'm thrilled to have experienced it.
I read the book when I was about 19 or so. I am now 31. The first time I thought it was fascinating and cool and cruel. This time round, I thought what a downer! Yep I just felt it more this time it totally got me down. The book is great and if you have not read it go for it. But of course it will leave you feeling like there is no justice because they literally just erased it!
The narrator is very good, and the books is easy to follow and quick to engage.
It is kind of a staple and I am glad I read it again but it will be many years before I go for it again.
I had to listen to this book as an AP assignment for school and it was not a very good story in my opinion. There were some parts in it which made me think, however it was boring throughout the whole book.
I finished as quickly as humanly possible! I couldnt stop listening! AMAZING AMAZING NOVEL! I plan to read Animal Farm next as i hear equally high praise of it as well
