I couldn't imagine the story being told any other way. Easily one of the best readings I've heard on audible.
Yes. But I didn't and I'm glad i didn't. Not that the book didn't call for it. It actually screamed for it to be honest. The performance begged for it as well. She was brilliant. My drive was over and felt that a break would be best.
You won't regret this purchase. Like all good stories I don't want to ruin one detail for you. But I believe you will want to buy the ebook as well. To many things to highlight, to reread, to contemplate. I'm not saying skip the audio book. This one is to well done to decide between the two. I would really like it if Audible started to offer a bundle of the two.. Even if it cost extra.
Yes, very funny.
I don't believe in spoilers
Great. He did an awesome job with a wide array of charcters.
Year Zero's summary may sound a bit far fetched but it's completely plausible. The Universe's financial structure is in perial because of America's asinine copyright laws. The only way to solve the issue is to try to negotiate the rights to every song created..... So, destruction of earth it is. Actually, most of the aliens are so smitten with our music that they would never wish Earth any harm, but one group wishes otherwise.
This is one of those books that you will tell everyone about and buy for your closest friends. It's edge of your seat funny and a one sitting kinda read. My recommendation is buy as soon as possible. Unless you work for a record label or congress, you probably wouldn't get it anyways.
People who will like this book may include: nerds, geeks, and music lovers. I don't want to put Rob in the same class as Douglas Adam's its not fair to Rob. It's like going to see a movie that everyone tells you is best ever and when it doesn't completely blow your mind your let down. This book is an instant favorite for me and there will be a hardback edition on my shelf. I just don't want you to go into it expecting the universe..
