This is not a book to be used for the scholarly study of history, but it is a great book for making you think about history and want to know more. I have listened to it twice, a little bit at a time and still enjoy it.
Protagonist sense of humor made me laugh out loud even when discussing science and math problems!
Plot was very engrossing story about being stranded on Mars, but the hero's smart aleck reactions and comments made me laugh. Couldn't wait to get back and hear more.
Adapt, improvise and overcome obstacles was the plot, but the humor made it as entertaining as a stand-up comic. Narration was perfect.
Mostly right-wing political rant. Might as well listen to FoxNews editorial.
None that I recognized.
Interesting, funny and disgusting
The total lack of connection between This Town and the planet Earth.
Some humor and perfectly understated.
The politicians discussing the "stupid" people they represent while eating lobster and drinking champagne.
Laughed one minute and screamed obscenities the next. Entertaining and disgusting.
Apocalyptic adventure with a touch of magic. Great story that really pulls you in but I was a little disappointed by the "magic" elements. Still a great listen.
Reader did a good job of changing voices and accents. Made it very realistic without overdoing it.
One of the top 10% of audio books.
A truly interesting story.
The Postman, of course.
Not really. One needs to stop and think about some of the concepts in this book. It is not mere entertainment.
Great listen! Of course it was much better than the movie. Causes you to think as well as entertains you.
Some good inside information.
Did not realize that Bin Laden was living a mile or so from a military school at which American troops taught Pakistani troops.
I still want to know who turned the electricity off in that portion of Abbottabad. How did that happen? How much did we know about Pakistani treachery?
