I wasn't familiar with the author, but he's funny and thoughtful. I enjoyed this very much.
Now I want to be a neurologist. Too bad my only qualifications are listening to Oliver Sacks' books... I would have been great!
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...
Yes, it was fast and entertaining.
It's just as entertaining as his first book.
I love Oberon.
I like to stretch these things out.
There is a lot of information here, which I couldn't exactly recount to you, but it was very interesting.
He writes and reads with subtle humor that made the subject very entertaining.
