Perhaps the best yet from McCarthy, which is saying a lot. Amazing ... a master of words. A book that I will listen to again and again.
This book is right up my alley! I love a story where the hero is also the villain! ... And in this case, a psychopath! A most unusual and entertaining read, written with intelligence and wonderfully narrated!
This could be one of the most important books to be written in the first 10 years of the 21st millennium. It does get technical at times, however, the main points are SO important that it's not vital that one understand all the technical info. These theories give our race (the human race) new hope in many areas that I personally felt hopeless about before hearing the opinions and theories of Dr. Kurzweil. He may not be right about everything, but his track record has been excellent. This is not a "quack." They don't put quacks on the cover of 'TIME'! GET THIS ONE!
I would recommend this book to anyone who plans on living with computers and their progeny. (That's just about anyone breathing) ESPECIALLY parents of young children and those planning new families. One of the most interesting parts of the book is the effects of technology and high tech toys on children. Another fascinating subject is the effects of Facebook, other social networking sites, and mobile computing devises on teens. This was one of the most informative and interesting books I've read so far this year, (I read 3 or 4 books a week) A very good narrator who kept the story going. Crisp and insightful! Well done, 5 stars!
How did I not know of this book until now?
This is truly a marvelous story written with intelligence and humanity. This story has something for everyone.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone. It's hard to imagine that there's anybody out there that would not be moved and touched by this story.
Best King novel I've heard in a long time, (and some I didn't like so much) This one is the old SK, and it's a great listen! The narrator did a fine job!
