I read it as part of a book club. I wanted to read a Tad Williams book so I thought this was a good place to start. I would recommend a friend to see what other books Williams has written and see if any of them are more interesting.
I sensed something was up, but I didn't make the connection.
He had a good voice. You could tell from the tone of the voice which character it was, which is not always the case with some narrators.
There is a lot of background information and unfinished threads in the story which I think will be picked up in the following books. I will read the next books when they come out.
No I wouln't listen to it again because it was too long. Even though I listened at 2x speed I thought it was too long.
I liked the concept of going back in time to change history.
No I don't think I have.
No I wouldn't really want to change anything, it is what it is.
I don't think it should be changed. There is nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't for me.
I don't think I have listened to any other of his performances.
Yes I would. It doesn't take too long to listen to and it has a good pace that keeps you interested all the time.
I didn't know which way the story was going to turn, so that was exciting.
This was the first time.
I liked Mr. Penumbra himself. He seemed so old and full of secrets.
I wonder how much the author was paid by Google to write this book which reads as a hidden advertisement for Google.
I liked the parts at the University. I basically didn't like any of the other parts.
He should have made it much shorter, or divided it into several books.
He is OK.
No, it was way too long. Many times I just wanted it to end.
I don't think I will listen to the third book.
The narration is my favorite part of this book. Tim Curry is incredible.
Scrooge is my favorite. It is fun to follow his development over the Christmas night.
There is something about his voice. He is perfect for this performance.
The most moving part for me is where Scrooge starts to soften, around the part with the second ghost, and you understand that there is still hope for the old grumpy man.
I listen to this book every year in December. It is easily one of my all time favorites.
Noting could have saved this book for me.
It was just boring. I wanted nothing more than for the book to be over.
It was OK
One of the stories was interesting, the Cavendish story.
I still would like to see the movie. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
Yes, because the narration is so great. I always like it when the author of a autobiobraphy reads his own book, and Stephen Fry is my favorit narrator, so this was perfect in that sense.
I have listened to his reading of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This was just as good as that one.
No, but that is not necessary. You can take it in bits.
Yes, if they like movies and Michael Caine
The narration was great. Every autobiography should be read by the author. I love it when he laughs out loud sometimes when he retells a story or remembers something.
