I would recommend this book to someone who is as infatuated with Google as I am. I would not recommend this book to the average reader or Googler as it is way more detailed than the average person cares to know. For me, it was exciting and enlightening to hear of the inner workings of the company and it's people.
I don't think Ganser brought anything to the story. I'm not sure I would have ever sat down and read the book, but it was an easy listen while doing other things (driving, biking, etc). There are not really any characters to
Definitely not. I really needed a break after about an hour or so. It is not a nail biting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is more of an informative reading full of information to digest as you go along.
Sure, there would be more details come out when listening a second time. The story is quite complex and I plan to listen to the next book and then watch the TV series and probably listen again after that.
The ending. I don't want to give it away, but the whole scene with Daenerys and the fire and dragons was riveting.
He was an excellent narrator and his reading did not distract from the details of the book. Sometimes the reader has a voice or something that distracts me. This was not the case with Mr. Dotrice. I will listen to more books by him.
Possibly, in a few years. I wouldn't normally re-read/listen to a book, but there are a few that I would go back to. This would be one. Now that I know the story, I think I would pickup more details by listening again. There are a lot of twists and turns that might come to light with a second reading.
Shadow, of course! It is Shadow that we follow through all the scenes and almost always is the one interacting with each of the other characters. I did like Sam and hoped she would turn out to be good for Shadow. And although freaky, Laura was interesting as she came and went in Shadows life.
I don't think it was extreme, but it did make me laugh, cry, gag, and sometimes think WTF?
This was a biography of Jane focused on the character defects she was aware of in her life and how she overcame them. I enjoyed most of it, but I was particularly interested in the addiction areas of her life. She goes into a lot of detail about several other things that did not interest me.
I would have rather heard the story of the specific area of her life as related to the addictions. I actually skipped some chapters that I was not interested in.
I really enjoy when this type of book is read by the author. When she refers to
I really enjoyed that the book was read by Neal himself. The information would have been the same, but to hear him expressing his views himself and in the style I am used to from the radio program really helped me understand his thoughts.
This was the first book by Neal Boortz that I have listened to, but it will not be the last.
There were not any
I wouldn't necessarily want to listen to this book in one sitting. The chapters cover different areas of the Fair Tax, so stoping at the end of a chapter and starting again later worked just fine.
Whether or not you have an opinion of the Fair Tax, keep an open mind and listen as Neal explains it fully and in detail. You might just find yourself with a new opinion.
