While not the best of the series, it is still very good. The intro with the background to the series is sort of fun in the way it ties everything together...although you could almost just skip it until after you know what the series is about. A lot of adventure in this one, but the story is not quite as big in the sense of the larger epic saga that really characterizes the series as a whole.You must be a fan of space opera to really love this...many authors owe their existence to the Doc.The narration is appropriate to the type of material. I wouldn't have necessarily chosen the same accents, but it is effective in delineating the characters.
refer to works of ER Burroughs, E Moon.
Appropriately overly dramatic
If you like The Stand, Lord of the Rings or The Dark Tower then you MUST listen to this one. The usual darkness of King, there are definitely a lot of moments of victory for the characters though.
I love Wolf!
I have never heard a performance by Muller that was bad. I am always pleasantly surprised at how he seems to capture the essence of the stories that he reads...no matter the genre
Pinker cites a lot of research on various personality and character traits, many of which turn the nature/nurture discussion on its ear. I really have a better appreciation for how different some people around me are and how it may really be even more out of their control than I ever suspected. So much else is in here, I really wouldn't know where to start...
His presentation is very balanced...I think he took risks in presenting his information without bias
It was hard to get out of the car.
I had read and reread the book years ago. I also listened to this back when initially released. I am not sure if someone who wasn't already familiar with it would get as much out of it. I liked his condensing of some of the chapters of the book...it is very effective and much easier to remember and apply.
Guilt and worry
He is always easy to listen to--warm and humorous style
I didn't know what to expect, I wasn't familiar with the author. I like the way that he crafted the story (as well as the genesis of the story itself) and the unique take on his first person narrative. I was intrigued and after about a third of the story I really was hooked on the direction he was taking it. I don't want to spoil anything...definitely different and interesting.
I definitely was moved by some of the plot elements--tears of intense feeling conveyed in the plot.
This is just pure fun. You can hear Sam Jackson's voice when you read the title in your head. Nice juxtaposition with the style/type of book and the content/language. I plan to dust this off at regular intervals to listen again and again.
