The author really seems to hit his stride with this installment. I have really enjoyed the character development as this series has unfolded. The chemistry and banter among the characters is so entertaining. I would recommend this series although you may have to struggle through book 2 due to the deviation in narrators. Brick does a great job (as usual) with the narration.
The author did a really nice job of taking you through the characters' (all of them) personal journeys of self discovery. I loved the gradual changes and slight shifts in attitude and found myself smiling, laughing and at times crying and it was pretty hard to shut this one off. If you liked "The Art of Racing in the Rain" you will love this book!
I put off reading this at first but, buying my first iPhone, then iPad, I became more and more curious about the innovation and pure simplicity behind the products. Steve was truly a visionary and a monumental jerk all at the same time. I find it fascinating that the folks with which he was the most brutal are the ones that look back and credit him with pushing them to achieve higher than they ever imagined. Mr. Isaacson did a seamless job of weaving the story together and telling it from all sides. Dylan Baker did a fine job narrating as well.
The reviews I read on this book convinced me to buy it and so glad I did. I enjoyed it from beginning to end especially the character interaction. The witty dialogue between them reminded me of Dean Koontz's "Tic Toc". Loved the narrator too and will look for more of him.
I first read The Stand in when my son was born in 1984 and have read it multiple times since. This download have been on my calendar since Audible announced and I am so excited to listen! I hope all those who have never ventured down this epic path do so now that its available on Audible.. Strap in and get ready for a ride!
This story is so well woven and just grabs you and does not let go. I laughed and cried and Craig Wasson does a brilliant job bringing the characters to life. I can’t recommend this audio book highly enough!
I really wanted to like this book. Rarely have I struggled this much to get through an audio book. The story is all over the place and I found myself just not caring what happened to the characters as I never became invested. This author's style is just not for me, if you decide to buy this audio book don't listen while driving.
This was another one that was hard to turn off. Another solid performance from Scott Brick (love him!).
