I have no time to read. I have two kids and a full time job so this is perfect. Getting used to Stephen's voice takes a little time, but if you have seen him on tv or in person talking its much easier to get used to it. As for his reading, its just great. People have said that hes one tone or boring, well he is a professional writer and this is not his usual gig. I look at this as a gift of sorts and we could have done much worse than this.
I've downloaded all of his books that he reads and I'm glad I did. You never know when a treasure like this will be gone for good.
I loved the first two books but when the book storyline switched from location to location it didn't tell you and unless you were following really close and it was easy to get lost. If you have read Jonathan Maberry he starts each area with a location and time stamp I don't know whom taught him this but my god is it helpful.
I'm glad the story is over but disappointed on the development of the characters that I cared about and how it ended. Now I know the writer was deployed overseas and with that I am going to say thank you for your service. Beating the horse would not be polite and overall very rude.
Understanding in the end its the vision of the writer and not my own that keeps me grounded. I am just along for the ride, no one forced me to get into the car and say just drive. There was too much time between books and I feel he lost that spark and this book was a job to get done. You can feel the lack of thought and operation in the chapters of the book.
The reading of the book became flat at the end. I was a tough read for the narrator.
No I'm happy the storyline is over.
If you want FUN get Jonathan Maberry and start at patient zero.
It was hard for me to pay attention to This world we live in. It was not interesting, I sat and listened to this in several sittings. The people in the cast of this book were detailed but the surrounding were not. With the book of the The Dead and the Gone (first book) you could close your eyes and see and smell New York City and being from PA myself she didn't cover the layout of the town, the once population, connected cities, populations, even what was on the radio? A book isn't about the people in it but about where they are and when. I listen to a lot of doom and gloom books but the person reading the book was so happy. Yes, its supposed to be a teenage girl but not to the point where every world scream drama and happiness. The sadness of the words did not come across in the reading. The words were there but the voice was empty.
I'm not going to compare readers because that isn't fair but Susan if your reading this please use Robertson Dean in the future. I"m not going to buy the next book because I don't care about the people in them anymore. I am a person whom buys books based on great stores with the same people in them. But in this book, if all of them died I would have said, well, its really the best outcome for all of them.
This is one of the most complex books I've listed to in the history of story telling. More moving parts than an engine and it was all worth it. Not once was I wondering, my god where is this going? I feel if I talk about anything in this book than it would spoil it for the people whom loved the Unincorporated Man. Justin Cord is still true to his nature but war has taken a little bit of his compassion away.
It took me a little bit of time to get used to Eric G Dove as narrator as Todd McLaren had painted the people in this world with such a detailed brush in the unincorporated man. There should be a rule if your going to start a series and your excellent at it then you need to drive it all the way home.
It was worth my time and energy it took to listen to this book. And really, isn't that what you REALLY want?
I will be buying the next book.
I've seen him on TV and I liked him but now, I know we like the same music, same people the low end of people the real life of who we are. This is someone I would drink with and that is up to the highest honor.
Anthony, you ROCK.
From one cook to another.
While they are both different types a nuclear war they are the same. In the road the bombs actually hit the ground and burn everything and the landscape is all dead and there is no possible end other than death.
In One second after we have to reinvent ourselves to be smarter to live off of the land and deal with what that would mean if we were suddenly moved to the 19th century.
And it should be required reading in school.
My family is from Scotland and Germany and we are a family of engineers. Because all my family are raised and taught that science and measurement are real.
I think this way because of the family I came from and how I was raised. I solve problems this way because my family is based more in science than faith. How can you measure faith? Or God?
Wonderful good full of insights and should be given to teachers everywhere.
I started it not really understanding what I was getting myself into. But after I focused on the actual storyline and how all the stories are connected I became lost in the worlds that were designed by the writers.
I download a lot of audio books because I work from home and I can say that this was the best one this year. I've listened to it twice because it was so detailed that I wanted come back to what I might has missed.
This heart pounding thriller which the is also located in the Florida keys (read Duma Key) kept me on the waiting until the end. My wife loved because it is so short.
So short attention span people and ADD people rejoice, this is the book for you!
I read the other reviews and found that the people whom disagreed didn't like science fiction. To those people your in luck, you can download dan brown here too.
That being said, the people in this book, I call them people because it seems the very polite to do so. You start to know them as children and then this event happens that changes them as children and how they grow up as adults.
I'm sad the book ended, It was wonderful.
I believe that a lot of people approach a book like they are buying car. But in the same idea just get into the car, don't look at the driver, don't look to see if there is enough gas to get where you need to go, just get in the car and let go
This book started slow, but then it took off and I was walking the people in the book and understood them. This is a wonderful book and people who didn't like it. I thinking perhaps they didn't have a happy childhood or the parents didn't read to them. I was always read to as a child and always went with the ride.
