it is now the number one book on my desert island list , dawkins gives you a practical window into what genes are and how they do what they do . this book is amazing
It's like Stephen king and his silly rock band
Ellison clearly fancies himself an ACTOR
And he ain't but he is a very talented and unique writer . I get the feeling he's the kind of guy who would demand a narrator be fired for this performance .... If the narrator wasn't He.
In my humble opinion this book was over edited the catalyst to the only super natural aspect of the book felt underdeveloped , I liked it a bunch and it reminded me a lot of 11 22 63
If you criticize the writing you are an a $$
This book gives exactly what I want more westeros more Roy dotrice , if you don't get goosebumps when young bariston Selmy rescues Aries
And you don't chuckle when Roy nails the voice of pycell , then move on to the next twilight
You have to respect martins grasp of politics if nothing else.
This is my favorite of the series so far because it fleshes out all the other books
In my opinion they should start referring to Tolkien as the 20th century Martin
I loved the LOTR but Got is full of real people.
this is my favorite simmons story so far less snobby than hyperion and more fun its worth it just to hear Achilles throwing f bombs and what red blooded nerd boy hasn't wanted to fight in the Trojan war?
some of these authors have impressed me in the past but there is nothing good here or anything original really the mechanical man story is the best of a bad lot , the narration is really bad especially the super intense whispering guy and the woman who reads like shes late for something.save your credit.
martin and Abercrombie are predictably good, and Rothfuss is predictably mediocre I really don't get why he is so popular.
its a treat to hear roy dotrice read anything ,(neal gaiman should be read by him exclusively imo) and there is thankfully only a little scott brick you can get through it but really the only great story is martins .
as always please help stop scott brick and john lee ruining good stories by reading them aloud.
It's the golden child set in plague riddled England with Eddie Murphy played by Russell Crowe
On par with 1984 or lord of the flies it's what the passage and hunger games wish they were, the narration in the first book is horrible but the last two are fine.
I first read the Gunslinger when I was fourteen and I loved it then , I am now thirty eight and Iove it as much now as ever roland is a hero and he lets the world be the anti hero he spends very little time whinning about how he doesnt want to be what he is stephen king wrote a very simple beginning to a very complex story , I adore this book.
roland burning circles into his fingertips as he fought the people of tulll.
yes many times
if you dont like it then you are a dope
no the narrator isnt that good
no this is a very very dot to dot plot
yes but just good
people have written that the book is a little technical term heavy , that is a gross understatement, while listening to it I thought of many alternate titles , my to favorites were,
Gadgets and weapons I like and situations I have Imagined using them in, and, I cant wait to commit mass murder and this is the situation that would make it ok.
this book is very entertaining , it starts out kinda extremist god gun anti society and around three quarters thru it takes a sharp turn to the right.
one quote that stuck in my head was "our children will grow up in a free god fearing country"
the author is so backward thinking , that the book becomes entertaining
apparently one jew and two blacks will survive the fall. and the two blacks dont appear until the last frame deffinate I am not racist tacked on chapter.
this book came off like a parody to me I loved it
