    Neal Stephenson hacks into the secret histories of nations and the private obsessions of men, decrypting with dazzling virtuosity the forces that shaped this century.

    What disappointed you about Cryptonomicon?

    This may have been a better book read than it is in audio. Keeping track of what year, country and land mass was difficult. I didn't listen past Part 3, Chapter 5.


    Has Cryptonomicon turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not necessarily


    Would you be willing to try another one of William Dufris’s performances?

    Of course.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Only the Nippponeze who survived 6 months in the jungle.

  • Guns

    Story
    (747)

    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Daniel E. Jacobs says: "putting his voice on what people have been saying"
    "Guns, an apology."

    Where does Guns rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Short and to the point.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chapter?


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    Well done. I can hear Mr. King.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Too bad fiction is taken so seriously by some who are perhaps not in touch with reality. Mr. King has written so many books that are thought provoking, funny, hateful and oh yes down right scary. I believe his intention is to make us think.
