Not really what I expected, it was somewhat interesting, but I am no history buff. I didn't really remember much about him & was interested as I hear a lot of his quotes used. The book opens you up to where the man is coming from but does little to talk about any of what most consider his major acomplishments.
Yes, only because I liked others
If this was not an audio book there is no way I would have finished this book.
I have listened to other books in the series and usually like them but this one took forever to become interesting.. Like 8hrs before the story finally got going.
This book is really slow at getting everything set up. The last few hrs were good but it took a long time to get there!
Don't get every ones comments about too much freaky sex? Yes it is part of the story but its not graphic or anything more then the previous story had? Its a good story and left us with a bit of a cliff hanger unlike the last one. If you liked the first one you will like this one.
Lots of good info, not really sure how to apply it without significant thought but then again I guess that's what they are trying to stress, look at the #'s rather then going with a whim :)
Reader was fine, the forumla stuff was hard to follow while driving but otherwise good book.
Good story, did not drag. Enjoyed it.
Charactor seemed interesting in the the League of Extrodinary Gentalmen. Clearly the movie took some libertys... Book was good but fairly slow at some points and almost seemed a bit winey. Did not realize that this was an orgional or very old reading of the book, after a bit I got used to the reader but you could clearly tell that technology had changed a bit.
Great pace, a fun story. Not quite like the DiVince Code or the Angles & Deamons book. But it is still a good story, this was one of his first books I was not able to guess the outcome of. If you like the storys of his other books you will like this one as well, but its not root around religen.
I'm normally a big Anne Rice fan, but I think I have trouble getting into her books when I get the audio versions. Though with that said I also had a tough time with this one when I tried to read it. I found it a bit dull at times. But then again I have never really enjoyed all the family history stuff she brings out in some of her storys like the witching hour & The feast of all saints.
I was not a big fan of the reader eather. I don't want to sound to negative but this was a take it or leave it one for me.
Good - Average story, seemed a bit short? I usually get the unabridged vers of books so maybe that is why it seemed short?
The book is funny & insitefull, just like the author. If you enjoy the guys TV show you will like this. Its nice in that it was designed as an audio book & had different folks come in from time to time & is not like many others with someone just reading the book to you.
I'm not a history buff or really into poltics and still enjoyed this one.
Its a good story but a bit slow by todays writting standards. If you enjoy 20,000 leagues under the sea and around the world in 80 days you will like this. The story is good for the imagination but can drag at times.
