This book is absolutely timeless and will always will remain one of the great pieces of literature. Focusing on a family towards the end of the Great Depression you really get a feel but yet will never truly understand what life was like. We complain about the "Great Recession" and such now but it's nothing like this. Recommend everyone listen to this story and be thankful capitalism has evolved past this at least in our country.
I like seeing good reviews on books before purchasing them. This one is an international best seller with excellent reviews, and deservedly so. Excellent, intriguing series that won't disappoint. It's horrific at times, mysterious, and has a level of humor at times. Excellent narration. Can't reccomend enough.
One of the best books I've listened to. Very good story that has many climaxes throughout. You never know what's going to happen next. Well worth your credit!
This book was not very good. It got such high ratings and was said to be even better than A Game Of Thrones. Not even close. Cool characters but that's it. I will not listen to anymore of this series.
Good economics book in terms you can understand. The only thing I didn't care for was there seemed to be some background noise at all times. Worth the listen if you're into it.
This is a very good book especially for those that don't know really anything about North Korea (that's me). All I really knew is it's an extremely repressed regime and they threaten to develop nuclear weapons. This book brings you all the way down to civilian life in North Korea in vivid detail. Very good, recommend to anyone.
This was an excellent followup to his series. Although a little slower at times it is classic Martin describing everything in this world he has created. Huge fan and I don't look forward to waiting years before the next release.
Nice short story but I wouldn't really consider it a short. It is more like a first chapter to leave you wanting more. Which isn't all that bad. Worth the quick listen.
I'm currently working on A Dance With Dragons but this book here is the best book I have ever listened to and read. Huge fan of the series and this book is probably the best Martin will ever write. Excellent listen. Narrator is great as well.
After listening to 100+ hours of Roy Dotrice the new narrator takes a little getting used to but he certainly is not bad. This installment starts a little slower and you need to pay attention so you don't get too lost, but in the end is a very, very good book.
