    The charaters in this book was all, special, and funny, in each of there own way, so i dont have a favorite character.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Jeg har allerede anbefalet denne bog til andre. Jeg synes at han har oplevet nogle spændende ting i hans liv og jeg synes at han formår at fortælle det på sin egen "Jørgen Leth" måde. Dette gør bogen til noget specielt.


    What other book might you compare Det uperfekte menneske to and why?

    Har ikke før læst / hørt selvbiografier, men blev bestemt fanget af denne, og vil med sansynlighed også høre "Guldet på havets bund: Det uperfekte menneske/2".


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Der mange scener i denne bog som er rigtig gode, kan godt lide når han fortælle om alle sine rejser til udladet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I bogen var det der rørte mig mest nok da han bor i Haiti, det var meget spændende.

    Every weekend, in basements and car parks across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight Club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter and dark, anarchic genius. And it's only the beginning of his plans for revenge on the world.

    Alice sidder ved en flodbred med sin søster og keder sig, da hun pludselig får øje på en talende hvid kanin iført habitjakke, der løber forbi, mens den kigger på sit lommeur. Hun følger efter kaninen ned i dens hul, som hun falder dybere og dybere ned i, indtil hun ender i et mystisk eventyrland, hvor intet er, som det plejer at være. Her oplever hun alle mulige og umulige ting; hun vokser og krymper, svømmer i sine egne tårer, møder mærkelige dyr med overnaturlige kræfter og er lige ved at få kappet hovedet af på befaling af en kortspilsdronning.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Lewis Carroll? Why or why not?

    Jeg er ikke sikker på om jeg vil høre andet fra Lewis Carroll, måske hvis jeg får anbefalet noget fra ham.


    What does Grete Tulinius bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jeg synes bogen blev læst rigtig godt op, med variation i stemmen, og indlevelse i bogen, så jeg fik lyst til at høre bogen færdig.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Efter som bogen ikke er så voldsom lang, kan man sagtens hører bogen i en kører. Oplæsningen i bogen er som sagt også ganske fin.
    Jeg hørte den i to bidder, men det var mest på grund af jeg ikke havde tid til at hører den hen på en gang.

    Vil ikke sige at jeg havde en favorit karater i bogen, men der var mange rigtig gode karatere i bogen, som gjorde historien rigtig god.


    What about Dan Schlosser’s performance did you like?

    Oplæsningen af bogen var ganske fin, de franske navne blev udtalt ganske fint. og der var lidt variation i stemmeleget uder oplæsningen, denne variation måtte gerne havde været lidt større, men ellers ganske fint.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Uden at røbe slutning synes jeg bestemt at denne var god, og slet ikke som man kunne have forudset undervejs i bogen.

    We were prepared for an earthquake. We had a flood plan in place. We could even have dealt with zombies. Probably. But no one expected the end to be quite so…sticky…or strawberry scented. Yahtzee Croshaw (Mogworld, Zero Punctuation Reviews) returns to audiobooks with a follow-up to his smash-hit debut: Jam, a dark comedy about the one apocalypse no one predicted.

    Yes i will recommend this to others. Even do i liked his First book "Mogworld" better, I still enjoyd this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Jam?

    I think the start was the best part of the book.
    The ending of the book could have gone in many directions, which made me want to hear the ending.


    Have you listened to any of Yahtzee Croshaw’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes i have listen to "Mogworld", which in my oppinion is better.
    I like his voice, and i think he narrated it good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did laugh sometimes, while listning to this book.

    Lolita, der både er en af de mest berømte og mest kontroversielle romaner i det 20. årh., fortæller om den midaldrende intellektuelle europæer Humbert Humberts fatale erotiske besættelse af den 12 årige forførende amerikanske nymfe Dolores. Det er historien om en tragisk og grufuld kærlighed fortalt med et både hjerteskærende og ætsende vid. Et studie i erotisk besættelse.

    Jeg vil ikke anbefale denne bog, til andre. Jeg lyttede til ca 7 timer ud af 11½ timer, så jeg prøvede virkelig at få mig selv igennem bogen. oplæseren gør det ganske fint, med enkelte fejl hist og her.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Jeg ved ikke lige hvad den næste bog bliver.


    What does Karsten Pharao bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    oplæseren gør det gangske fint, han havde en forholdvis dyb mande stemme, så han lød som om han godt kunne være han bogen er skrevet om.


    Do you think Lolita needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Da jeg ikke hørte bogen færdig, ser jeg ingen grund til en efterfølger.

    Would you try another book from Birgit Friis and/or Birgit Friis?

    Jeg tror ikke jeg har tænkt mig at høre andet fra Birgit. Det kunne dog være spændende at prøve en rigtig coaching session.


    What could Birgit Friis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I bogen blev der sat et fiktivt interview op med en person, dette interview var efter min mening noget tyndt, og der kunne man sagtens have fundet på noget mere intersant.


    What about Birgit Friis’s performance did you like?

    Jeg synes der var nogle rigtig gode øvelser i den tilhørende PDF bog.


    Do you think Coach dig selv til Succes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Ja der kunne sagtens komme en mere detaljeret op følger til denne bog.


    Any additional comments?

    Alt i alt synes jeg at denne bog var noget tynd i det.
    Der er nogle gode øvelser i bogen men de blev fremlagt i et kedeligt, fiktivt interview.
    I korte grove træk, er denne bog ligesom alt andet coaching, som kort fortalt går ud på at man lette røven da man ikke får noget gjort ved bare at sidde stille.

    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    I dont think i can make a comparising to another book.
    I haven't listisning to other books like this. but I have been playing MMO games.


    What does Yahtzee Croshaw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did an amazing narrating, i think. Like many others i know him from zero punctuation, i its was nice to hear him with punctuation. He also change his voice as he spoke as the different characters, making the story come more to live.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    During the book, I the did laugh many time.
