definitely worth the read. a very smart book and interesting take on the roots of violence and how it's changed over the years. something to think about.
Perhaps it was Jake who ruined it for me. I'm not a fan of this narration. Stick to the screen Jake. I'll have to try reading this one in the paper version.
certainly one of if not the funniest book he's written. Home run here... Excellent job Rob McQuay. I'll listen to this again before the year is out.
not my favorite, but some interesting information here. enjoyable - not the best, but worth the read. I think Bryson does a great job narrating his own books.
This is a must read, especially for Torrance natives, like myself. What an amazing story. I'd say one of the best books I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. I'm off to purchase the hard cover for my bookshelf. Do not second guess - just buy this book.
my wife was reading this for a book club, so I listened to it so I could relate with the book club party - we hosted the review for this book. damned if I didn't end up enjoying the heck out of it and ended up heavily participating in the book club discussion. what an interesting concept making for a different than normal read.
Had me interested from page 1... having not liked The Gold Coast as much as other Demille books, this one was awesome. one of the funniest books yet... also, the narration was perfect.
while much of this books story may be flawed, it's an american classic for a reason... one of those books that's long... you get to know the characters all too well and don't want it to end.
makes you really worry about what you, and your kids are learning (learned) in school. I'm hopeful this book makes the difference it should - in any way it can... read it, and ponder.
one of my favorites of the collection. a great book to listen to with the kids in the car as well.
