I have listend to this book several times (rented from the library) and liked it enough to buy it. I think the reader is humorous and the content is very good, if you listen to what he is saying. The Zen attitude for corporate culture was refreshing and helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone (working for an elephant) who wants to learn how to accept the Zen way of thinking and apply it in the business world and help yourself have a better attitude about life.
I love Stephen King. He is my all time favorite novelist. However, these stories were all too
I don't think I can sum this book up in just 3 words. I love the complicated storyline, the many characters and subplots, and the lessons and trial each character goes through and how they are all interconnected. This is the first of a series, so it is a good introduction and forshadowing to what may come in subsequent books. I will say I watched the HBO series and it was excellent. I would recommend watching. Usually, I'm disappointed with the book-made-into a movie, but the beautiful scenery, the actors chosen to play the characters and the visual beautity of the clothing etc really helped bring the novel to life. They didn't leave anything out!
I thought the narrator did a good job with the book.
I couldn't stop listening, but since it is about 48 hours long, it couldn't be done in one sitting. However, I carried my ipod/iphone around with me non-stop so I could listen at every opportunity. I had already watched the HBO program, so it wasn't like I didn't know what was going to happen next, but I still wanted to listen to it!
I liked the detailed storyline, the knowledge and research on the subject matter, both about gentetics, computers and surviving in the destert. Also, it sent a moral message about alterning human genes without being too preachy.
I would compare it to a Michael Crichton novel.
I love fantasy and really enjoyed this story. I think it is a wonderful pick for young readers, althought you don't have to be young to enjoy it. I didn't like the reader's voice all that much, but got used to it after a while. All in all, very good.
