Double Whammy was recommended to me by a friend as a good place to start in the Carl Hiaasen world. I enjoyed the characters and his writing style, and am currently reading Hoot to my son (and really enjoying it), but the overall story just didn't grab me and keep me rushing to my phone to listen to more...
I love time travel stories, and I love science fiction... Those aspects of this book were great, and I really enjoyed the writing style. What I couldn't get past, was the lack of story. It's a worth while read/listen for the science fiction, but if you're looking for a story, it's just not there...
This is one of those books that really makes you stop and look at how we fit into the overall picture. I LOVE these types of books. You may, or may not agree with Sawyer's take on humanity, but it really makes you step back and evaluate where the human race is, and where we are going...
Jonathan Davis was a treat to listen to as well. Well done!
If you loved baseball as a kid, or love it now, this is a must. I should not have listened to this one, because I don't like baseball. Silly move on my part.
The writing was fantastic, and the human side of the story was great. Too much baseball for me... I know, it's about baseball, but I was hoping for a heavier weight towards the other story elements.
The narration was fantastic! Well done Singer!
First off, the narrators were awesome in this one. A great performance!
The story fell a bit short for me. The overall storyline was good, but it took way to long to get there. Some folks will love it, but I need the story to keep moving forward or my mind starts to drift.
This was a great ride! Some of the story points came out of nowhere, and seemed a bit contrived, but I didn't care because it was so much fun!
The narration was fantastic! Loved it!
What a treat for anyone who loved the Peter and the Starcatcher series. I constantly enjoyed the modern take on the series. A pleasant surprise! The narrator did a great job keeping the story interesting and bringing the characters to life. Jim Dale was a tough act to follow, but great job!!!
A fun listen for the entire family. I'm sure we'll listen to this one again. A great way to enjoy that long car ride.
I loved the side kick, Josh. His one liners made me laugh out loud, and he was masterfully performed.
The narrators performance really brought the characters to life. From the great grandfather to the school bully, all the characters dialogue was thoroughly enjoyable.
I listened to this one in one sitting while on the drive from Miami to Orlando. A perfect fit.
This was ok for me. Not great, not bad, right in the middle. I'd say it was worth a listen.
Took a little while to get going, but then it was worth it. Nice listen.
