Kushner's style is very very very dialogue heavy, I know that. This book was even more so. The story went nowhere and it went there very slowly. This story felt like a soap opera, all smut and no substance. The characters that were engaging were rare and had small parts. Then suddenly all the action happens at the end and no one really talks about anything. It's like the writers had a deadline to finish the book.
The performances of the readers are the only reason to listen to the audio. Even with such great readers, you'll find yourself struggling to stay until the end.
Hunter Thompson is no Jack Kerouac. There's nothing redeeming about a single character in this story. I know there's a huge audience for this type of material, but it is not my drug of choice.
I tried to get past the bad audio quality but the obscure language of this story was another hurdle. I like SciFi and I like it in audio, but I could not engage with this story. Just wasn't my thing.
N. Tesla in Shield?
Kavatch and Stark Tower same
Chitauri go home
If you like the Avengers, you'll like this book. Its a little bit slow to get started, but hang in there because there is excitement to be had.
I wouldn't seek out this author, but the narrators were wonderful.
I would not have finished the book without the personality created by the voices.
Avoid steam-punk zombie apocalypse stories.
Yes. I am anxiously awaiting the audio version of Seeing Further: The Story of Science, Discovery, and the Genius of the Royal Society .
Mr. Bryson laments the lack of history written and taught about the home. Maybe its because the history of the home is tedious, boring and depressing. I expected so much more having just finished the audio of A Short History...
A story without a man who talks to cats, a cohesive story line, characters that a reader/listener actually cared about instead of hoping they would die.
What didn't disappoint would be more appropriate. It was trite, stolen from classics, over written, absurd in its effort to be obscure and lame.
Couldn't get past the trite dialogue to care about any character.
None. It could've been a nice Haiku and saved me 16 hours. Here's my summary:Oedipal complex portal to another worldold man talks to cats
Don't buy it, even though Gaiman endorsed it. Can't get it right every time Neil. Get Pavane instead.
