Well, I have to say that this book will take awhile to get through. Knowing that this come from centuries ago makes it more understandable. Maybe I was thinking that this book would really get right into saying what the myths and mythology was like...
I like it...a good Sequel...Long in the middle....opens up a possibilty...Some of the actions of Davey was more controlled than most people would do.
I can see why this a good book. It explores that ration views of humanity and all of its fears and arrogance.
This is a book that has stood the test of time....so to speak.. It was able to bring out the best...and worst of our accomplishments. I will listen to it again....later
This story gives us the insight into a man with a will to live that many of us do not have. Have not seen the movie yet. The book cannot bring out all of the atrocities that were put on the POWs...The movie definitely cannot. War is H**L...
About 10 minutes into the book you find yourself saying..."This must be way into the future". It's nice that the author develops some if the personal background and struggles. Not a sure why I personally got put off on the word "Aliens" after the twentieth time hearing it but I did. Maybe the author will have a name for them in the next book. Will the next book to see how the Timeline goes...
A good story with less talk about NOTHING. The story was NOT advanced much AT ALL.
Debatable...if he treats his other books like THIS one...he just "mailed it in".
I would have made the Author go back and WRITE a story...not just cut and paste parts from other books.
I am so disappointed with this installment. The Presidential Agent series is a good one...I would have said very good but "This was TERRIBLE", I purchased this because I just KNEW W.E.B. Griffin would not just "Mail in" an installment. This was real money used.
It started slow but gather speed...This one for the collection. You will not be disappointed.
I have to admit that I was pleasantly suprised at how well I enjoyed this. The narrator was very good and at first you think that Shaq is really telling this. You do get the feeling that Shaq loves himself and that no one will ever be like him....But that's Shaq. A GOOD LISTEN.
Mother and Grandmother... They always kept him on point.
Shaq.... of course
The Big (...) Can you dig it...
The was that Christopher Paolini wove the story to its FIRST (hint) conclusion. All of the loose ends were tied up. (Even if some of them were not story book ending) The conclusions made sense. In listening to the reasons WHY the events happened like they did... I had to agree.
This installment is the end piece of a Masterpiece started many years ago... Congratulations!
Enders Game... Logical development... entertaining...
Eragon... this character made me MAD...Happy...sad and all of this knowing he is one-of-a-kind.
Join the adventure with characters in the same stature as AVATAR... A must see...
I took a chance on the Book because I normally read the 'Presidential Agent' Series. This is a very good read...I gives you an inside look on how People are acutally taken and used as a commodity. ENLIGHTENING
