I am a Deadhead and musician and I learned a lot from this book with regards to the creation of the music itself,and Phil.A little extra here and there about Kesey and the Pranksters,and the happy and bad times with the Dead. Brutally honest..
Great read too,I bought the book as well..
I would recommend this to other readers if they liked the first book in this series you'll like this one too
Hard to believe it wasn't that long ago that all of that racist garbage was in full force and the civil rights movement was happening.Took me back to when they were busing kids in due to desegregation...
Yes, the characters were well developed, the story kept me listening even though I'm not a hug fan of Sci-fi...the whole concept was very interesting
I felt like I was in the story, not just listening to the reader
No, it just kept me listening and sad when it ended
Can't wait to listen to the others
A typical Armageddon scenario, but with great characters.Definitely makes me fear the "Survivalist" wacko-s more than before...
Hmm, American Meltdown
Players were Personalities!
For me , this book brought back so many memories of my youth and my brief career in Tennis....the Nastase stories were awesome!
No I have not....He does a good job, but I kind of wish Jimmy would have narrated.
The birth of his son Brett.....You can really tell he loves his family....
I wish I could go back in time ...these stories were so great, and flashed me back to a time when players had personality other than their clothing.....
The story was a positive uplifting one ...Although I think it might have been aimed at a younger audience, but was pleased I gave it a chance anyway.
I liked the bitter old lady in the nursing home because I can relate to her cynicism
Not an extreme reaction, but it was one that I couldn't stop listening to
This book reminds me of a young lady I work with who is the sweetest, most optimistic person Ive ever met despite the loss of her mother as a child and some other tough circumstances...I've recommended she give this a read
Well, the dance scene was completely different than the movie, and I thing overall the book was better than the movie even though the movie was excellent
He was easy to listen to, good acting and separation of characters
The Father, because the book gave you more insight into the character
I very rarely if ever get a book after seeing the movie...I am sure that had I read the book before the movie the movie wouldn't have been as good as it was. That is how good this book is.....it is even better than a very good movie....in fact I didn't fill in Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence into the characters like you usually do with a book turned movie..SO SO HAPPY I DECIDED TO DOWNLOAD!!!
Yes, but I think this book is probably better read than listened to.....
Too late.....Killing Kennedy is out....
I thought I could listen to O'reilly...in fact another reviewer said that even if you can't stand him personally the story is worth it.....I would agree, the story is excellent, but O'reilly really sounds like he's reading it, there is no characterization, or emotion which is really ashame because the story is very good
The jumping back and forth between past and present wasnt very smooth...Lost interest
No.....this was just disappointing..maybe my expectations were too high
No doubt it will and I doubt very seriously it will follow the book very closely
Couldn't stop listening
Yes, just when I had the characters figured out.....twists...I liked the alternating he said, she said chapters
They were believable...I felt like I was "in" the story
I'm definitely going to check out the other Flynn books!
A decent thriller, the author really is quite good
He's one of my favorite narrators and this is as good as any he has done
Hey man, where's the ship...
Lost interest about the time the ship gets lost....seemed to go all over the place, but still a good listen....primarily because of the narrator.....Maybe I'll give it a closer listen...
