About in the middle
I enjoyed all the physical science parts of it. Making sense out of chaos.
I got a little tired of the voice over the hours.
Science saves lives
Great Human History
The human interest, the human condition ages ago. How politics and poverty and power ran the world then and now.
YES, if I could have I would have!
No, but still excellent.
Pillars of the Earth. Same time period with focus on the human condition.
Having just watched the myriad TV shows commemorating the 50th anniversary of JFK's death and subsequent investigations, and listening to King's afterward about his investigations, it seems that King did an amazing job of doing his research--better than the so-called pros.
No, but he was AWESOME. Best of all audio performances!
The people, the places
Great ending, Kudos to King's son for thinking of it. I actually cried.
No, but it is much better than the movie!!
When Skeeter stands up to her "friends" and puts them in their place. However, they "knew not what they did" as they were as much victims of circumstance as the maids.
When the maids formed a group and started to stand up for themselves.
Yes. I like books like this, similar to Rats, Lice and History and on how weapons changed civilizations. I thought the premise was interesting, but I think I could have written it myself, that is to say it was a little shallow in my opinion.
I loved the setting in carny land. Several of his books are set in a similar place. King and I are the same age, and when I read his books they vividly take me back.
He was great! He sounds somewhat like King himself.
The believable heartaches that were not overdone, not melodramatic and very touching.
Tough question. Oddly, maybe The Old Man and the Sea. One major theme of the human condition
The timber of his voice kept my interest and made the story sing.
Human interest history.
The character development made the actions come alive as you realized these men were just that, real men.
The characters as seen through dialect
The story behind the history
About the same, I would guess, which is a compliment to the audio version.
The politics was best, the relationships least interesting
A little colloquial.
