What a great jewel of a story to find. I'm new to Audio and I was just browsing all the lists. This caught my eye for some reason, and I can't believe how it paid off. I'm usually into thrillers and cops, but this was just like watching a good old b&w movie, one where you just feel great when it is over.
The two periods in time, are done really well, and the readers are great.
I couldn't wait to get back into the car and get the story back on.
I recently discovered Ayn Rand recently, and listened to Atlas Shrugged, and it was the best book I have read or listened to. I read Fountainhead next not expecting it to be anything as good as Atlas, but it was just about as great. It's different but similar, a little quieter but just as thought provoking. Such a range of characters. Is it coincident between the two books, the two main ladies have a name that start with D, and the two main men have the initials HR?
What an incredible story. Clearly the best book I have listened to, all 63 hours. Such a great story integrated with her philosophies. I couldn't wait to get back to listening to the book. It's hard to believe this was written back in the 50's. It's timeless. It could have been written for today. You can not go wrong by listening to Atlas Shrugged. And of course the bonus is, it narrated by Scott Brick!
What a great story!. I couldn't wait to get back to listening to it. I ususally just listen in my car during my commute, but this time I was listening to it when I got home. Great characters and an excellent 2nd story line(kind of Law&Order like). Just when you think you figured it out, they give another twist. You can't loose with this one. And last but not least, it's Scott Brick doing the reading and he just makes it even better.
You can't loose. This was a great story! Very captivating. A very good reader. A number of interesting twists and story lines. I couldn't wait to get back to listening it.
The story is good and intriguing. It's right up there with other good thrillers that are creative with coming up with stories one would never think of.
But, yes there is a but, the reader Scott Sowers has a good voice when he is using his natural voice for the main character, but when he has to put on a different voice for other characters the voice was very annoying. I found many of the voices were either a derative of some one fom Bill & Ted's Excllent adventure, or the voice sounded like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons.
I almost stopped listening early on, but like I said the story is good and I toughed it out, and it was worth while.
For ewhat ever reason, I chose this book as my first ever audio book. What a way to start. For a guy who loves watching Discovery, this book was kind of like that.
Losts of medical / science talk, but told in away to be very understanding. I was never lost.
The story shared some great insite into historical events, and gives you a very good insider story into today's disease control.
I was never bored, the reader is easy to listen to.
One of my first buys, and it really delivered. Lots of intrigue and twists and turns. You can't go wrong.
Always kept my attention.
I tried real hard to listen to this and give it a chance. but I just couldn't take it anymore. I was so bored. I gave up after an hour.
