What's not to like. Cute stories about his life and career seasoned with the unique Shatner flavor. I only wish it was longer. If you like William Shatner than you like like this one.
Nice story, new ideas, kept me interested but not invested in the characters. The cooking aspect was a new twist and I liked that, the rest was fairly average.
Great idea, great characters, good narrator, slow story, I kept wanting to jump ahead. It held my attention well at first but I struggled to pay attention to the narrator about half way through.
I saw the movie then listened to this audiobook. Apart from the flashbacks this is the dialogue from the movie verbatim. It wasn't that good. I was disappointed both in the movie and the audiobook. Good idea, poor story.
Great book for the young adult. Tries out an original story line but falls back on the old tried and true Vampire lore. Not a bad attempt. Not a thriller, Not that funny, just okay.
I was excited to listen to this book but the problems started almost immediately. I was born and raised in Alaska and when Grieve writes that he had to get back to camp by early evening because he didn't want to be caught out in the dark I started to realize things were fishy. In late spring, when he claims to be here, the sun doesn't set until almost midnight and doesn't set at all for a few months the farther north you go. He's vague on a lot of facts in this book, facts that could be verified. It feels like he's glossing over details. I'm not saying the story isn't true. I'm saying I have A LOT of doubts about its authenticity. I'd skip this one.
Interesting story, short on the believability, short on action, short on thrill. Safe for younger teens and adults who like to avoid the heavy hitting dystopian thriller.
This book just didn't take off for me. I'll admit i have the attention spay of a five year old but it just never hooked me. Didn't finish it. I gave 2 stars for the benefit of the doubt.
The idea for this story was really good. The execution was good. The characters fell short on believability. It goes like this; 18 year old kid finds a gate to a alternate earth, one without humans, recruits his friends to harvest animals and minerals from the other earth, the one with sabre toothed tigers, to this earth for profit. Military/CIA spoils the party, things get messy, bad guys lose. fairly hypocritical good guy; protect other earth while using it's resources and polluting it for his personal gain. Worth a listen nothing to rave about.
This guy has great ideas but his story flows like it would if written by a kid with ADHA after eating candy bars and drinking a big gulp. I wanted to like it. It had so much potential, but it fell soooo short of what it could have been. I probably should have followed the advice on the cover. David wong/Jason Pargin needs a better editor.
Novel view of the hotel and service industries. It kept my attention and made me laugh.
