Could barely get through the introduction. Not sure whether I didn't like the book, or the narrator - probably both since the author narrates. Perhaps it would be more interesting for people with no medical (or scientific) background, but I doubt it
A bit tedious. I found the conversational tone of the writing to get old quickly. Too much of a panegyric to Salk.
As mysteries go, OK (but not great). As historical novels go, better. But there is soemthing very icky about being read a sex scene, especially in Olde English. Too weird for words.
Very funny, but, boy is it diffuclt to follow the mystery without being able to leaf back a few pages. I'm listening a second time - maybe I'll figure it out. Douglas Adams is a great reader, and a very funny writer.
Maybe a great story; certainly an interesting premise. But listening to it (as opposed to reading perhaps) made the banality of the dialog unbearable. I couldn't finish it. The French accents were ridiculous - everyone sounded like a Inspector Clousseau.
... only more tedious (and I am a big history fan).
The book is great, the reader is great. Nothing more to say.
It was a most interesting story (at least the part I heard) but listening to this book (as opposed to reading) makes the banality of the dialog that much harder to bear.
Perhaps better when read rather than listened to. Even with a decent background in math and physics, it was most difficult to follow the spoken text.
