I didn't read the print version.
I thought the mischief of the the angels was pretty funny.
No not really. I enjoy listening to audible in the car when I am driving
The story was dumb, the narration was terrible, so overacted. I have read books by both of these authors and enjoyed them very much. But this story was a miss, and I usually enjoy the YA genre.Not much more I can say, would not recommend it.
Being a procrastinator myself, I could so totally relate to this book. I laughed out loud on several occasions. I read parts to my husband (who is also a procrastinator) and he laughed equally as hard.
I think what made this book hit the mark was that the author wasn't trying to help you with steps to stop procrastinatation. He just made fun of himself and pointed to the many examples and rationalizations that we procrastinators have down to a fine science. God it was funny! A real bright spot!
Another self help book that has been written 100 times before. Just could not even finish it, am glad I didn't pay full price or I would have had to return it.
I would have to say that this was one of the best listens ever! The story was unique and the narrator did such a fantastic job! The story is touching and believable.
I felt so bad for Theo, he was such a lost soul. Boris was equally damaged, but in a different way. Each managed to find their way, though I don't know how. Boris was such a character, his logic made sense in a convoluted way. I think he truly did love Theo though. So many twists and turns!
When we think of sociopaths, we think of people that kill with no conscience. Though that can be the case, sociopaths come in many forms. I loved how this book educated me on how sociopaths really think, and how to avoid them.
This is another dystopian society young adult read. I'm not sure why they are so popular these days. Maybe because they are easy to imagine and one gets caught up in the story.
I sure did in this one.
It is touching, funny in some places even. But the story tells one of a world where love and hate are removed from the brain at around the age of 17. Any strong emotions that may cause chaos or deviate from a perfectly orderly society are gone. In essence, all the things that make us human.
Good read. I would recommend it and the follow up Pandemonium. The last of the trilogy is due out next month.
I LOVED this book. I cannot believe the leaps and bounds made in neuroscience in the last 10 years. This book, in some ways, reminded me of another great listen from Audible "The Emperor of All Maladies: The Biography of Cancer." We have come so far in our understanding of the brain, but I know we are just barely scratching the surface. As in the other book I mentioned, it makes me feel hopeful in many ways, and hopeless in others. It seems like everything comes down to those signaling pathways at the cellular level doesn't it?
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the brain and how it works. Though this book answers many questions, it raises so many too. It makes pretty clear though why only the best and brightest study neuroscience.
This was a good listen. I was kind of surprised though, at how many times it was just another day at the office. Non the less, one has to admire the bravery and sacrifice of the soldiers. These guys put their lives on the line every day for the United States and I don't think people realize what a toll it takes on their lives and families. I enjoyed it very much.
I would buy it again but not listen again. I never read a book twice.
He wrote the book and that brings a new perspective to the story. The only perspective really.
Laugh. He's so funny and cynical. I dont think anyone else reading this book aloud could have done as well.
I am not a" foodie" and had never even heard of Anthony Bourdain. I just bought a second book by him because I enjoyed the first one so much. Thanks Audible for offering this book!
