Very interesting story. I listened in bits and pieces over a long drive. I especially liked the science in the book that describes how things work.
Stephen King is one of my favorite writers. Unlike Hollywood types who tackle social issues with little more than celebrity, this is a fact based look at both sides told in a compelling narrative.
This is a tough question:balancing tinkering with the Constitution and common sense. I don't own a gun and abhor senseless acts of violence by crazy people. But there are two sides to every story and King tells them.
Very interesting book. Well written, researched and presented. Why we get fat is well documented. "What to do about it" is a little misleading. Most everyone knows that sugars and carbs make you fat.
It is not until the very end of the book that you learn that your genetics trump almost everything, and if you have got the fat gene, the only way to keep weight off is to fast. I was annoyed that I put so many hours into listening attentively, hoping for an easy solution, and discovered that there was really little I could do about it.
Worth listening. A great way to get a dose of American History and a good laugh at the same time. A little irreverent, but that is to be expected from Stewart.
I chose this book based on a recommendation from the Afterword by Stephen King, in his audiobook/novel 11-22-63. He claimed it was the definitive book on time travel and that was what inspired him.
I bought the abridged version, but wished I got the unabridged version. It is a very entertaining story. The narration is excellent, and as far fetched as time travel may sound, he makes this believable. The characters are likable and there is a good storyline. I have recommended this to several of my friends who have liked it as much as I did.
At first I was reluctant to download this. I had seen the movie and wasn't sure the book would be as entertaining. What a great book. This is a compelling story. It is also a great "short" book based on a novella. Sometimes I don't want to wait 30 hours to find out something ends.
After listening to this, I downloaded 11-22-1963 by Stephen King. Another outrageously good book. These are among my favorites.
This audiobook has lots of singing, so it is a great listen. I encourage her to read and listen to books like this to develop different kinds of comprehension skills. It also helps to get a narrator's voice in her mind, so that when she reads it on her own, she can match the rhythm and character voices.
My daughter loved the story, the production values and the singing.
I found this to be very useful. As it turns out, I am one of those people who may come across as being arrogant. I think many of us can see ourselves in the 20 bad habits he documents. To get this kind of information in a corporate setting would cost thousands. This book has caused me to think...which is the highest accolade I can give.
These are great stories, but they are not for young children. There are adult themes in all of them.
I thought this course was exceptional. Thoughtful, interesting, and perfect for this medium. Anyone intested in American History or biography will love this.
