Most interesting: good story line. Least interesting: narrator
The narrator kept trying to have different voices for the characters, but failed. He's start up initially with a unique sounding voice, but after a few lines he would lose it and then all the characters voices would blend together making it extra difficult to follow.
Even though I am an adult, I find these books very entertaining. Better than the Harry Potter series. This book simply builds on the first one. Good action, intrigue, and some drama in there. Can't wait to listen to the third one!
I thought this book was very educational. That being said, it made it incredibly BORING!!! Only listen to if you're a history major. It was cool that I learned some things about Rome and the surrounding areas, but not worth it.
I felt this was a standard good book, good read/listen. I have actually been to Mumbai and the slums so I feel that enhanced the listening experience. Good story though, hopefully it brings some attention to an often forgotten/overlooked demographic in India.
I really enjoyed listening to this perspective of the oil conglomerates. I found the parts about foreign policies and how they effected countries particularly informative. It was a bit on the long side for listening and I really had to space it out. Dry at times, but very educational.
The thing I liked best about this book was how thorough of a history it provided. It definitely debunked some myths that I thought previously to listening to it, it confirmed some things and it also had a lot of new information. What I liked least about it was it's length!! Holy cow, what a long book.
What I liked most about talkative was the performance. Andy Cohen did a really good job of keeping his book a light and easy listen. I also really enjoyed that he threw in extra material that was not in the book and even made special reference to his listening audience. What I liked the least was not knowing what he was talking about with respect to certain aspects of his life. I am not in the know about all the real house wives series and he goes on in detail about them for a good quarter of the book, so that kind of stunk.
No, but I'm not really the re-reading/re-listenging type.
The girl from district 8. Because she was so stealth like and sneaking around.
Her voice took some getting used to, but overall she did a good job. Nice emphasis where needed.
Not really. Fun, different kind of story.
