I would recommend this book to anyone that is an aspiring writer. It's also a good autobiography.
One thing that stands out is his dislike of adverbs.
He has a sense of humor.
I did not have an extreme reaction. However, I did pick up my old copy of Elements of Style. I also have been writing almost everyday now.
I would listen to this book again.
I would rather read it for my second time. There are some chapters that I don't need to review but I missed many of the concepts that were discussed about his work with physics.
I liked getting a picture of his demeanor and personality.
His voice is not boring. He kept my attention.
His personal relationships remind me of Warren Buffet's.
Constant. Train. Wreck.
Artie is my favorite character. It's an autobiography.
I wish that he would have finished reading the entire book himself.
his dad's death
I got through it pretty quickly. I needed some popular culture after listening to Einstein's biography.
Pi is my favorite. He his smart, cunning, strong, wise, and kind.
I have not. This performance is good.
I tried to listen to it in one sitting. I couldn't wait to finish it.
I enjoyed listening to this book. I enjoyed the story and the performance.
Listening to this book was not a waste of time. It's considered a classic and I just listened to Around the World in 80 Days again. I don't think I'll listen to this one again though.
I think it's a mediocre ending. The story wraps up abruptly.
I have not. I enjoyed his performance though.
I did see an old version of it.
I have not read the print version.
The money in the fire
I have not.
I didn't want to think that the guy was an idiot, but I think he ended up being just that.
I like Crime and Punishment better.
I would not recommend this book to a friend. The plot isn't revealed until almost the end of the book. It seems to have been rushed or thrown together.
I might compare it to Don Quixote. They both give insight on daily life in their respective times.
I may try another one. However, his voice and inflection hardly changed from character to character.
I'll give this book another try in the future.
The character and plot development are excellent.
Mikael Blomkvist is the man.
I have not.
I like the way the book ends. I don't want to give it away.
I recommend this book. But beware, it gets graphic and disturbing.
Ishmael is bored and wants to sail... blah blah blah... Cannibal... blah blah blah... Ahab is crazy... blah blah blah... whale encyclopedia... blah blah blah... harpoon... blah blah blah... Moby Dick kills everyone but Ishmael.
The narrator is good though.
I needed to listen to a book like this. The last few books that I listened to were long and heavy.
It's entertaining. It's humorous. I could have listened to it in one sitting.
I think I will listen to it again with my young sons.
This is a beautiful and moving story. It is heart wrenching.
I wanted it to end.
I highly recommend it.
