I had lots of fun listening to this book. Trouble is I was constantly making notes on things to research further via the internet!! Things would be a lot different if history were recorded accurately . . . but you know what they say . . . the history books are written by The Winners! So, alas, history books are published with a built-in bias. This book gives a great jumping off point if you want to learn more about the subjects included.
I REALLY like George Carlin . . . but Nepalm and Silly Putty was VERY UNEVEN in its humor. Some things were hysterial, and others are just ho-hum. I've heard other Carlin recordings that are much funnier.
Lots of fun, but I didn't care for the narrator. Seemed too prissy in his acting out the characters parts. You've got to see the movie, too.
I really enjoyed Bushworld . . . but it did go on and on and on and on . . . Sometime too many outrageous facts can boggle the mind!
Just as much fun as the movie!! Great escapism!
Sphere is one of my favorite movies, and this audiobook really complemented the film. Fun to listen!!
I truly enjoyed listning to Annie narrate her book. We've all heard the nightly news reports from Baghdad . . . but this book puts us IN BAGHDAD right beside the reporter. It is a wonderful insight into the everyday life of a war correspondent and the small wars they constantly fight just to report the news to us. Thank you, Annie, for letting us peek into your life.
This little audiobook is SOOOOO Funny! Each little scifi story was hysterical! If you like scifi and comedy . . . this book is for you!!
This book was a "Fun Ride" through the Beat Generation World. AND what really made it so much fun was the narrator, Tom Parker. This narration just rolled and rolled along and made you want to run after it and try to catch some of the off-beat plasure that must have been prevalent in the '50s. LISTENER BEWARE: Don't take anything too seriously and don't expect a solid plot line that drives an arrow straight course!
Sitchin presents some very interesting ideas, but he passes off his personal assumptions as well-researched facts. I have read at least 6 of Sitchin's books, BUT BE AWARE that other scholars in this field don't necessarily agree with his translations and interpretations.
