If you like life, dogs, or family; then look no further. This is it.
You think the book is all about a guy and his dog who climb a bunch of mountains, but NO. The first 3 chapters throw you a curve ball but they are just setting you up for the fast ball right down the middle......swing away.
We really like Sara Gruen's work but this reader may not allow us to finish this book.
Readers are all personal taste but I just started the book in the car with my wife and we both could not continue listening. I tried playing at 1/2 speed but that did not work either, the reader seems to be trying to race to the finish. We will continue to try but thought I should post this now. If I finish I will redo this review.
I really like knowing what is going on with the newest technologies.
I will make this sweet and simple. I read or listen to several books at a time going back and forth as my mood fits. Kill Decision did not allow that, once started you had to keep going and when it was over I wished it could go on but the smile on my face was all I had left. If DAEMON and FREEDOM were to your liking, then get going with Kill Decision.
I have never listened to a "Master and Commander" book before and after seeing the movie my expectations were very different than the actual book. I guess the movie makers just used the title "Far Side of the Earth". With that said I liked the story in general but had a very difficult time understanding the reader. So before you purchase this book you should listen to the clip, if you can understand the reader then this book is a good read.
This ending is like those of a weekly Television serial. There must be a next one.
I truly enjoyed this work and best of all, learned much about the world we now live in.
This is a wonderfully told history, which if one can only step back, seems to be repeating itself today.
This book educates, entertains and may be used by the reader to get a more complete understanding of the what, when, where and why of so many events that our history books seem to only offer in bullet points.
Womens suffrage, Russian Revolution, Americas war with Mexico and oh yes, World War 1. I now understand how a World War could start over something as simple as one small country offending another small country. A very good Book.
Crichton at his best. I rarely leave reviews but this was the best one of I have read.
