If I had listened to this book before Lev Grossman's other work, I probably would not have done so. This was the very first audio book that I could not bear to finish because it was so dreadful. I was very disappointed.
Yes, but based on his other work. If I listened to second book like this, I probably would forgo Lev Grossman's work in the future.
Yes, I loved Codex. I was reading (listening to) a New York Times member one bestseller with a sexy twist when I began reading Codex. I couldn’t stop listening to Codex until I had finished it. It moved along right from the first page. It sucked me into the story and kept me there. I highly recommend.
I liked the way that it kept moving forward without wondering off on needless side trips.
My favorite scene was when Margaret began assembling the Codex.
An interesting premise quickly deteriorated. The main character isn't interesting. Forty percent of the story describes his poor performance in a video game. The narrator makes it worse with a droning delivery. The book suddenly ended irrationally. Save your credits.
The plot is unbelievably slow and the writing is very bland. Almost anything would have made it better.
This book was long and tedious. I kept expecting that it would get better, but in the end you are left confused and very unsatisfied. This book was a total waste of time and money.
All of them.
