Never read the print version - I like all audio books better, as I can do something else while enjoying a book (like driving)
The freaking end!!!! Oh man, really????
Some emotion that I might miss with just my brain!
Yes, almost did it too!
The scenes where they gun down and drive over domesticated dogs. That seemed like overkill.
First of all, there are 98 chapters for an 8 hour book. That is ridiculous and unnecessary. The book was very predictable and boring. It wasn't well written; a book for the masses.
I wasn't terribly fond of the cocky, doomsaying main character either (who keeps a chimp in his apartment when he is preaching about the dangers of increasing animal aggression/killings?). He is the hero who saves a damsel in distress. The book plays into gendered stereotypes; the suave, brave man saves the helpless, sexy french woman who is completely dependent & has a panic attacks when he is away from her.
The premise of the book and the subsequent solution are absurd and totally nonsensical. It's funny that the science of this book could be so wrong despite all the main characters being scientists. I can suspend my disbelief to an extent, but the solution was instantly effective where in reality it would probably take years before any slight difference would have occurred, especially since it took so many years for the problem to develop. Animals aren't light switches.
Good spin on how humans engineered their own demise. Don't quite like the narrator voice when he tries to speak for the female. Good voice for the male. Plot dies out towards the end. It kept me engaged and wanting to hear more.
The story line was ludacris and impossible. The characters were flat and uninteresting. Don't even get me started on the ending... perhaps one of the worst endings I've ever read or listened to.
I usually like Patterson but this was just plain stupid. Poorly written and overly performed. An ad for radical "green" groups perhaps? I will never get another book from this author combo. Shame on you.
this was my this was my first James Patterson book. the book was good the reader with good. it was a good story line well thought out. I like that was left open for a possible sequel.
I am a great reader and listener of all things book.
the token females in this story were weak. Patterson approached them with clear disdain, making it hard to enjoy the book
