I wasn't familiar with the author, but he's funny and thoughtful. I enjoyed this very much.
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....
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.
