I had not read the print version but I assume it is just as fantastic as the audio book.
"An atheist activist with an ax to grind"
I guess I did not actually realize the book was read by someone beside the author.
I was reading this book for a class. So had I actually chosen it to read for myself, I suppose it would have been better.
The Blind Watchmaker - Richard Dawkins
Well, the premise of the book sucked because who wants to find out they have been getting screwed?! Nobody!
David expresses the his thoughts so effortlessly that it saves me the time of using expletives myself!
David was fantastic!
David has other, hilarious, contributors to the reading of the book that one would totally miss if they were to read a paper copy.
This can't be right?!
I have listened to The Blind Watchmaker six times and find something to take away each time!
"Have you ever seen a Frelephant?"
I thought the switching back and forth worked really well.
I have found myself quoting this book numerous times.
It was a good book, just not my cup of tea.
I haven't listened to any of his other books.
I have not.
It is up near the top of my list, I would read it again.
I enjoyed the depth and complexity of the story.
Well, he reads it to you which is always a plus!
No laughing or crying, just got swept away by the story.
The story captivated me and I drifted further into the story than I could have possibly imagined.
I felt like I was another crew member and part of the story.
Peter reads the story dramatically and makes listening to the book fun!
Actually I think I did, It was a very long day at work, haha!
I have read and enjoyed many books by Jules Verne and I would love to read more of his writing.
The story was captivating and I enjoyed the main character's uncle.
The narrator's voice was difficult hear and understand, further there were some moments when I could hear the narrator cough.
It would be nice if the author was not dead... and in the center of the earth.
The Narrator makes me feel like I'm is sitting in the lecture hall listening to a captivating professor; the kind of prof who sits on the desk and just holds an open forum.
This book is a little dryer than his other book: "Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist", but that is to be expected.
There weren't really characters in the book.
I found myself nodding my head in approval a lot.
