I'm still trying to get through it. I was captivated in the beginning with the story of the elephants in Africa, but the rest of the book is pretty much a snooze-fest.
This could be a very interesting book if the narrator sounded the least bit interested in the topic. Instead, he presents it as if he's a tired history professor, lecturing to a class when he would rather be home.
I've just started the book but want to make a comment before I forget: It would be great if readers of books about the military had military experience. Ms Pearlman reads well enough, but I cringe every time she incorrectly pronounces a term or puts stress on the wrong words in a phrase.
Definitely not! The authors apparently imagine a future filled with violence; where there is not enough anything to go around. That is such a "I bought into the nonsense" point of view! There is enough in this world to go around for thousands of years to come!
Make it more up-beat; more optimistic.
It just made me angry.
The first half of the book was quite entertaining. Just turn off the audio and move on once you get to the internet blog - the rest of the book is mostly a waste of time.
The first half, yes.
