I'm not sure why but I did not find this book very enjoyable. I loved the Dark Tower series very very much and found it hard to put the book down, but I found this one a chore to listen to for the most part unfortunately...
I am not sure if my experience would have been any different if I listened to it after Wizard and glass but I doubt it. Stephen King is the author bit his performance is no where near as good as the narrator of the rest of the dark tower!
At least I quenched my curiosity.
I enjoyed this book just as much, if not more than, I enjoyed Calculating God, by the same great author!
I will definitely be looking to listen or read his other books, and perhaps Hominid will be my next title of choice!
I have learned a few things from this book, but found so much hate and arrogance in it. There is also a lot of repetition, self praise from the author to his own self, obvious exaggeration, and almost zero positive things to say about Iraqis, as opposed to the numerous harsh and hateful things narrated.
This is the first Audible book that I find myself compelled to request from Audible to swap.
After finishing this book, I find myself completely uninterested in watching the Bradley Cooper movie with its same title, based on it.
The Ninth Gate, starring Johnny Depp, was more enjoyable than this audiobook in my opinion.
