Save your Audible credits. Crichton (as usual) uses cardboard characters to attempt to make sweeping generalizations about current issues of 'Science.' Interesting ideas are presented but the plot and characters are absurd with talking Orangutangs and Grey Parrots.
another good mystery story set around the discovery of King Tut's tomb.
What always bothers me about Peter's main characters is the pompous, pretentious, 'Britishness' of them. They may be interesting but they're not very likable as people.
...history about a little known period of early American history. What I found interesting is that the New World was know by fisherman much earlier than the the first colonies.
It was a complex period of history with intersting character on both sides (Native American and English)
Bryson is an excellent storyteller, and manages to take many dull, dry subjects and make them interesting. Once of the best lay science books out there.
The narrative adds much to Bryson's wry sense of observation.
This is one of those books that's hard to put down. The author has a good sense of history--excellent settings. And it's a good learning experience of eastern European history
Excellent book. As sci-fi classic. Narrator added a good sense of atmosphere. A 'must hear.'
.... that is typical of Lndsey Davis. But, it gets tedious after a while. A pretty good story, though.
