Interesting story. I didn't listen or read the story the first book; I viewed the DVD movie. I was surprises by the story's great acting. and the timeliness of this story. Maybe more appropriately steady content of the story. It is science fiction in great tradition of the form. Social commentaries relevant today are very pointed. Statement of the ways control and people organize themselves is great. No a book for change at all. However the book was entertaining. I will try other work from Ms. Collins. It is entertaining reading, theatrical listening.
No, but I will.
The story continues...
Not sure I would see the movie. reading and the listening always makes a better picture when the author and the actors present for me. Movies are great, but I am not as impressed by good movies as I am by good books. Part of this situation is my own education and knowledge of art forms. We are taught to write, and read. I appreciate the mechanics of writing and theatrical reading when I experience it differently than the visual movie experience. I have lot less deeper understanding in mechanics of movie story composition and presentation. But like many things in life I hope learn more about movie production and presentation composition.
After reading some Dan Pink, Seth Godin
There is not to much to change in their work. They produced a good product, a teaching tool about advertising. The book is a little USA culture positive circa 1960's. The idea of team building, community building, selection of good worker contributes with mentality and ability to adapt. It is the idea of the corporations supportive individual development.
He was energetic, and spoke clearly. All performers are done well, or adequately. I have to say I the quality level narration talent in Audible.com common market space is very high, with many, many talented individual, and talented producers. The audible performances is so good regularly that I am somewhat accustomed to getting great narration performance most times.
Yes, read other authors. I also appreciate many recent writers on the subject stand on these authors work in the space.
I enjoyed the story. I am appreciative John Scalzi's skill to tell a story, screen play, or to help make theater in my mind with written words. I am looking for and reading the stuff he done. I think author is adept writing for television, theater, or movie script story production. Characters are developed but there is a common culture, and era of time of current popular culture. I think tis is something that older readers will discern.
The narration is excellent and performs great. The narration performance is as much the story as the written material. Not everybody gets excellent evaluation from me. However, it does seem so at times. I believe the level of pnarration performance talent out here is high in the common market of narration performers.
I await the science fiction next production from Mr. Scalzi. I will read collections of even shorter stories he has recently appears.
Not a short story.
None I recall..
I am seeking to experience more.
The wit of the writer.
none come to mind but I am doing this quickly between tasks.
Yes, the story and the performance is enjoyable. It makes some kind of sense to choose to do enjoyable activities when one has a choice for what activity to perform.
cautionary comment: the past is obdurate... the past doesn't want to be changed.
Laugh yes cry no.
I appreciate this professional writer. I believe you could teach writing. But you do have genius too. That maybe teach not so much. I'm glad you are in the world when I am.
