Nope, he is completely off my reading list.
Not this guy's work: Yawn
Seth should really have hired a pro. He is monotonous. It's hard to concentrate and understand his passion for this topic because his voice has no personality.
About 4/5ths would be cut. He drones on about how his vision is good because its good.
He repeats the same message over and over. There are no practical examples but rather things analogous to "take the good road" and "This is good, the old is bad so follow the way". Some good advice, the 1/5th, but the rest just repeated dribble.
If you like books like "Chicken Soup for the Soul" then you will probably like this.
I was hoping for more story.
I am not into the archaeology which the author really emphasizes.
If you want facts and supporting arguments you will love this.
And overall it's interesting.
If you want to be told a story, you will probably not enjoy this book as much.
Super Kudos to the Author for all these facts and research though.
For 2 bucks it's ok. But prepare for ads at the beginning and end. I certainly won't do a 30 min audio again.It's obviously to promote other revenue streams.
This is a great store and continuation from the first book.
However, having two Readers is not enhancing the story or
Both Readers are Marvelous.
But the Listener needs to 'keep track' of the characters through
the voices which, obviously, are not the same.
IF Ed read the Male parts solely and Heather the female parts solely
and one was the main narrator, I believe I would have enjoyed that better.
It's tough to rate their performance because each reader deserves a 5 star.
I was surprised that having so many narrators worked pretty well. When all the characters get together and all the narrators also, it will be interesting to 'hear' how they do.
My extreme reaction was: It's another 'World has ended" book. Nothing special. Not really an original story. Reminds me of "Lost".
I do not like the way they divided up the books and also saying "Season". These are books, not a tv show.
So it's on my "if nothing else comes up, i'll continue" list.
It's an experiment and I give it a solid 3.
Jennifer has a good range of voices. Although her 'enthusiasm' at key points is lacking she is still a very good Reader. I'm hoping that, in future books, she is able to emote the character's emotions better. But overall a good 4 out of 5.
This is an enjoyable book. Since it is 'tagged' as a prequel, I'll look forward to the rest of the series.
I think those who feel that getting to the core of your problem and exploring the reason for you behavior is not the way to solve the issue will love this.
Come on: I will Hypnotize you and all your problems will go away.
If you have a drinking issue then having someone just say soothing words
is not the solution. The solution is to discover why you have this issue.
My bad for picking this up.
She did good. I like her performance and the way she narrates
Well she has Stress and other things here. This is for drinking less so stay on target.
It gives you a good feeling for a while but sooner or later you need help facing your issue. This ain't it.
Professor Steven Novella presents an entertaining and informative talk about our health. It is broken up into short chapters. Professor Steven Novella is a great speaker and has a good sense of humor. His medical knowledge and confident speaking style makes this an excellent audio book.
I found that the characters did not really live up to their background or expectations.
Everyone seem to be a 12-year-old adolescent.
Whether it was the performer, writer or director the entire story was mostly annoying.
I went through half of it and at the end all I could say was: wow what an annoying leading character this was.
I simply would not recommend this storyline or series.
The Match is a fascinating history of an era in golf that is long gone. The author does a fine job at bringing it all back to life mixing the player's biographies with the game.The After Word is not really needed but interesting.The Appendix is really depressing and the final word leaves you on a down note.I wouldn't bother with it if I knew.One complaint is Audible.After a touching final word from the author there is literally no pause between the finalwords and "the end!".Come on, Guys. Give us a moment to reflect on the story before jumping in with the last word.Otherwise a fine book and history lesson. Who'd a Thunk that Bing Crosby ... well I've said enough. ;)
