The plot, if there is one, shifts so quickly and improbably, that it is not only difficult to follow, but becomes boring. The book would be fine, if the reader enjoys Monty Python type humor. Otherwise, it is a total waste of time.
The program is quite different in format from other talk shows. It is too strange for my taste. Too much emphasis on deviant behaviors (alternative life styles), in my opinion.
Not bad in an odd sort of way.
I don't know how anyone other than a woman could enjoy this. Fictional romance in all its glory purely from the female perspective.
This is the most boring of the series written on
Ender Wiggens. I couldn't find the plot nor the purpose for this portion in the series. It does have some value, but not much. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they enjoy debates on theories.
This is one of a series of books written about the future and a group of people who grew up in it. It has some really good portrayals of what aliens might be like, but seems unrealistic when it comes to the inter-communications among species. It does get boring in many places with so much detail, but the plot is OK and the author does think out his characters pretty well. I didn't enjoy the series of books as much as I had hoped from reading the Audible write-ups, but it is OK and once you get through some of the boring stuff, you might like it. Don't bother with reading Children of the Mind. It is the most boring in the series and doesn't bring anything to the next in the series. It is mostly a discussion on theories with no substance.
It appears to be just another book by people trying to make money on the word Sex. There is some good "aroma therapy" type music, but I could get more relaxation from sniffing a tea rose than listening to this book.
If you have a minor problem where you need help forgiving someone, this is a good listen for you. The book starts out pretty good and provides some excellent advice on what to do, though it is a little shaky on how to do it. It doesn't get any better after about the first hour. From thereon, it seems to repeat alot and just present examples of other peoples' plights. I was hoping for more, but did garner enough advice to make the listen worthwhile.
I don't know why, but I expected something different. It probably does present a more accurate presentation of events and the history that led up to the crusades, but it so boring and dry that I couldn't finish reading the book let alone remember what I had just listened to 10 minutes earlier. If you just want plain historical facts, then this is the book for you. If you are looking for entertainment, seek elsewhere.
Brown out does himself with this novel. I couldn't stop listening to the end after just a few minutes into the book. The movie doesn't do this book justice at all. There is so much more to the story. This follows on from his previous novel, Angels and Demons, and does so without a hic-cup. Really great stuff and one of the more superior readers brings the story to life.
Really an entertaining book. This is one of the best listens that I have heard in a long time. I never knew this history before and would never have guessed that anyone could lead such an exciting and dangerous life in those times. The history was presented in such an interesting way that I laughed and cringed at the same time as the narrator presented the story. The story teller does an above excellent job in making the history come alive for the listener.
