I spent three hours listening and now I give up. Shouldn't a novel have a plot? This is, without question, the worst book I have ever downloaded. Don't waste your time or money.
The narrator was the best part, followed by it being an interesting premise. However, it went on and on wtih nothing happening. Plus it was extraordinarily repeptitive.
Get to the point. This story did not need to be 18 hours long...let alone carried over to another book; whcih, I may add, I will not be downloading!
The book was awful. Long, boring, and never comes to any climax. Interminable is the best description I have.
Had potential to be interesting, but betweent the shallow characters with incomprehensible motivations and the the rediculous story line, it became barely tolerable. Don't waste your time.
Interesting premise but gets very repetitive. In addition, the author preaches his thinly veiled political message...not to metion his infatuation with anything to do with the military. I would be interested to hear if his "facts" are even accurate. Don't believe everything you read...
This author's use of descriptive language and adjectives would have been impressive if it was a homework assignment in an English class for seventh graders...don't waste your time or money!!
Idea is interesting...as it usually is with this author. However, the book is thin and the characters are one-dimentional at best. In addition, the narrator is weak. He makes most of the characters sound whiney. I'd recommend another choice.
This book might appeal to conspiracy theorists and technopobes, but I don't know who else will like it. This book is nothing more than the paranoid rantings of a misanthrope. It is incredibly disjointed and poorly developed. Try reading Orwell's 1984; you can see how a real author handles this topic. Don't waste your time on this one.
Interesting blend of genres (autobiography, horror, satire, suspense) works well in my opinion. This was a lot of fun and kept me on the edge of my seat. Very well read, which always helps. Yes, the protaganist/author is very unlikable; but, so what? It makes me glad I'm not him! I appreciate books/movies that push the limits and this surely qualifies. Listen and enjoy!
I finally realized why I have been very disappotined with the last two books in the Dark Tower series: King started by writing "science fiction" and finished by writing "horror". The Drawing of the Three, Wastelands, and Wizard and Glass were as engrossing as as anything I have read. Things started to deteriorate with Wolves and hit rock bottom with Song of Susannah. Vampires, Low-Men, Cantoy, Tahine? Gimme a break. I have always enjoyed King's horror books and I have enjoyed his science fiction. But why blend the two? I found myself wishing the story would end instead of hoping it would go on. Dark Tower VII was okay, but the change in King's style really killed a brilliant story. If you have read the first six, you have to finish. I promise it is better than DT VI. However, it has none of the magic of the middle installments.
This book is really weak compared with the prior books in the series. I couldn't wait for it to end....it was so boring. I hope the last book in the series recaptures the magic.
