One of the greatest thing about King's work is that the "bad guys" are so hate-able, and this book is no different. Big Jim still disgusts me as well as the tendency for normal people to just completely fall to pieces when trapped.
I would definitely recommend this book.
I heard a lot of reviews of this book and was pretty excited to read it before I saw the movie. It was an interesting concept, documenting the aftermath of a zombie apocolypse, but the endless stream of unrelated journalistic stories ended abruptly, just as it was getting a little tiresome. I was disappointed.
Not sure why they named the movie World War Z, as the story line did not follow any of the accounts in this collection of post apocalyptic news, but for once, I enjoyed the movie better than the book.
The characters, of course, are even better in the book. I got hooked on the show and turned to the books when the season was over. A lot more happens in the book than in the series, but the theme is just as dark and unforgiving.
I'm not crazy about Roy Dotrice's narration, but am getting used to it. I will definitely be moving through this series.
Who knew that presidencies were made and lost based on the issue of our apparently subversive space exploration agency!
If you like meteorites, extreme environments, espionage, scientific mysteries, wildly inventive schemes and plotting, and yes, even a little romance, then this book is for you. Brown makes some pretty loose assumptions somewhat based on science, but I still enjoyed the story.
This journalistic effort was an entertaining listen, but not the best I've read by Ronson. I like the fact that he narrates his own story, and think it adds to the performance.
The book seemed a bit like it was written for time series publication in magazines, going from one event after the other creating a sort of peak and trough effect for the listener, but a lot of background information is laid out in the book that I hope will add to the experience of the rest of the books.
The narrator was easy to listen to and I would recommend him.
Although I liked the first chronological book in the series (Prelude to Foundation) better, I enjoyed this story and can't wait to get in to the rest of the books.
Scary. Kings monsters are scary, but the devil inside every day people is even scarier. the dark side of human nature was written in excellent detail and this story definitely kept me up at night.
I don't know why I keep reading these books, but I love them, and would recommend It.
I really enjoyed the characters in this book. The main character is a regular guy in pretty much every way, but some of the minor characters have really stuck with me such as the yellow card man, and many of the community members in Jolene.
I would recommend this book, especially the afterward by Stephen King on the research done for the book.
I enjoyed this tale of boyhood friends united in childhood turned into enemies by their cultural seperation. The narration kept the characters distinct, without being annoying.
I had never heard of this author before, but would read another of his books.
This was an interesting story, narrated well, and enjoyable, though not the best of Stephen King's work.
I would still recommend it.
