This is one of the best books I've listened to in a while. Its just flat out amazing. It goes in so many different unpredictable directions. To top it off I don't know who I'm rooting for which makes it even better.
I really enjoyed this book, but I have to say that I didn't find Jenna to be a likable person which makes it even more real. There were times where her descriptions made her sound flat out crazy to me. I guess living in a different reality then everyone else can do that to you. I'm very glad she wrote the book and that I could learn from her experience.
The book feels like it's being written for children because of the tone it sets. I think it might have something to do with Jenna's limited education. That being said it was still entertaining and well performed.
I highly recommend this book to anyone with ears.
I think the book was ultimately good, but I kept having issues with the dialogue. It felt like it was supposed to be real dialogue and things people would say in a conversation, but it never happened. It felt more like someone was reading was was written as opposed to having a conversation. This was not the narrators fault. Its totally an issue with how things were written.
Ultimately it was still a decent book though.
I was really looking forward to reading this book and hearing good arguments about Anti-Piracy, but thats nto what this book was about. It was more about why copyrights were important. In doing so thought it did not give a good impression on why Piracy was a real issue. The book spent a lot of time going over things that didn't seem to have anything to do with the argument at all. I'd say it felt like 75% of the book felt unnecessary.
Also the author stoops to the pirates level and does some name calling when reffering to them. I understand that he might have been a little hurt by all of the negative comments he had previously recieved in his articles, but it doesn't look good to me when your trying to take the moral high road, and still trying to insult others with immature name calling.
This is one of the book is definitely in my top 10 of all time. I was looking for a good post apocalyptic book and this one fit the bill perfectly!
Its scrary how plausible he makes this out to be. The parallels drawn between America and Rome and why we aren't Rome is pretty interesting. Also the Red state Blue state issues were addressed well.
Its a really good book and I highly recommend it to any other Card fans.
The only thing I had a problem with is that the civil war wasn't big enough.
