Now I want to be a neurologist. Too bad my only qualifications are listening to Oliver Sacks' books... I would have been great!
The continuing characters are wonderful, there are enough stories and surprises to keep me happily listening, and the narrator is great!
This has been such an enjoyable listen, and I dreaded coming to the end, but now I see that this is the first of a nice long series! I'm ridiculously happy.
Not much happens for the first hour, but it gets better. The narrator is okay, but his style is slow and ponderous.
I'll admit it took me a little while to get into this book, but then I couldn't stop listening. What a great tale--full of twists and turns and unexpected elements. There's a wonderfully dry sense of humor at work here. I totally loved it.
I kept waiting for something unique or interesting to happen, but it never did. And the narrator sounds like she's doing an infomercial....
I wasn't familiar with the author, but he's funny and thoughtful. I enjoyed this very much.
I found it difficult to keep going with this one. The interjection of innumerable headlines and bits of newsreel reports became tedious, and I really hated the narrator.
Memorable characters, plenty of surprises, and a great narrator. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
There's so much exposition and so little interaction between characters. Not up to his usual standards, and I almost decided not to finish it.
Not as good
He does a great job. Great voice, and he doesn't sound like the usual baritone voice-over guy.
Only if he gets back to a better mix of FUN vs lectures...
