Intellectually and emotionally, the story works at the highest levels. I felt stunned and moved by the final scene. I hope to see more from this author on audible. Preferably with the same reader.
This is a book that one wishes would never end. Perfectly crafted, witty, entrancing, highly original, with numerous fine characterizations and a gripping plot. The reader is perfect as well.
Susanna Clarke, if you are reading this, I look forward eagerly to more of your work.
A grand tour of economic insight.
I read the 2nd edition, in printed form. This 4th edition is a worthy successor. I'm delighted that it's available on Audible, with a fine performance by the reader.
Grimmer and more violent than I had imagined. I got about half way through and gave up. A portrait of a disturbed individual with minimal plot or drama. Mostly goes on in the mind of the highly unsympathetic anti-hero. If you like this sort of thing give it a try; otherwise, I'd skip it.
No problems with performance, although not terribly brilliant either. But hard material to work with.
Great plot. Strong character development. Hilarious scenes, and some touching ones. And the reader is perfect.
This is a combination sci-fi and medical thriller. The plot is exceedingly slow moving, and the book is filled with detailed descriptions of disease, to the point where I had to stop reading about 2/3 of the way through (as things got really gruesome). I have the impression the author may be a medical doctor. If you are not a doc, you may want to skip this book. Good reader.
Good writing and a mostly good plot. As with most action novels the build up to the finale is more fun than the finale itself. I look forward to the author's next work.
A mystery novel with abundant human and cultural elements and a subtle sense of humor. The reader a perfect fit to the book. I recommend without qualification.
The unrelenting self-pity and cynicism are hard to take. A good writer with a bad case of Vietnam syndrome.
