it was good
yes, the narrator is a bit dry but i thought it was the right tone for the subject.
no need to make this a picture show. i could see robin williams making this more fun.
i have not yet read the print version, although now i would like to.
the whole thing. was i supposed to remember it? i just enjoyed the ride!! i loved the personalities and the tumultuous live of each character. way cooler than real life ;)
no doubt about that, aristotle quance! i suppose i would have to pick up the bill but i bet it would be worth it.
excellent book. well written. and the story is well told. thanks for the distraction.
my memory is not that great.
don't think so.
i don't watch film.
this was an exciting listen. honestly i don't even remember much of the story specifics now but i did listen to it all the way through which can be big for me. i listen at work. if it does not put me to sleep that is a big plus. this one is worthy of a listen. sorry for a spotty review but if you are willing to go on a little adventure this one will take you there i am sure.
the story of factions and choice. growing up and the decisions we make. all relevant stuff.
not sure, maybe huckleberry finn?.
trist. she was great.
not really. it actually kind of fell apart at the end for me but i thought it was worth the time.
someone who does not like to think.
hollywood blockbuster advertising? yes.
the performance was fine, just don't want to recommend the audio book.
it felt to me there were too many contradictions in the characters personalities. the story was hard to believe.
i have not read the print version but the narrator was very enjoyable. the accents helped paint a great picture in my head.
i won't pick one. i thought they were all important to weaving the story that i heard. minor characters had big impact, i like that.
the accent brought to life the language.
cut out the boring parts.
it is a classic, i understand that. to me the redeeming quality was as a study in old novels. i just thought it would be more fast paced and exciting.
the narrator was fine, the story was not holding my attention.
not sure, it was a while ago i listened. i just remember it was something i suffered through anticipating something good to come that never showed.
maybe. do people actually listen to things twice?
yes, i thought the plot was engaging. i listened all day.
i don't remember it being bad and literally i listened to this thing non-stop on a day off so either i was crazy bored or the narrator was good, or both.
not really it was just a fun story that was easy to get lost in.
people interested in the history of medicine and cancer, pre-med students.
i would not avoid an interesting book because he was narrating.
the book did not hold my attention.
it might be good book. i listened to it at work, driving truck, it was too slow and repetitive. i could not follow. this is one of those maybe it is me not you reviews.
the economic history of the media and telecommunications industry also the authors thoughts on apple and google.
the narrator was fine, the story just got boring to me about half way through. sorry i am not that academic.
not a character so much but at times the author would write from wildly idealistic perspectives, then when those did not pan out use them to juxtapose the reality of the situation. i thought is was a weird lens to see the past and future.
probably not, i really liked it but i don't need to study it :)
the narrator is excellent. and of course the story, it is fairly well paced and kept me interested throughout the lengthy story. this one could keep going and going, which i think it does...
yes, it is escaping me at the moment. no matter i really enjoy john lee as a narrator. he does voice and inflection very well.
not particularly the whole thing was cool.
my memory is failing me but at some point in the story there was a wedding and as the bride and groom left the alter ken follet wrote the guests threw corn on the newlyweds. there was no corn in europe during this time in history. maybe i was just lost in a dream as i drove down the road but that is what i thought i heard.
