Yes and no. It's a good story, but it just takes so damn long for anything to happen. Then the epilogue is so long and flowery, it just drags.
Great reading of the book.
A bit of a disappointment from one of my favorite authors.
The author is condescending and self important in the extreme.
Not anything by her.
She rambles on and on and assures listeners that she knows everything because she spoken about the topic "like a thousand times before." It's really unprofessional.
Yes, it's a great book, it's just too dense to listen to, I'd rather read it.
If they would have slowed down and given you time to repeat the same words over and over. Instead they move on constantly to new phrases, so you never get the ones you just heard. Unless you were sitting down with workbook in front of you, there is no way you're going to learn anything with this.
The narrator was so monotone that I nearly fell asleep...while jogging.
Had any inflection in his voice, or interest in the subject.
He took a fairly interesting subject and read it like only the most boring college professor can.
Though the subject matter seem interesting, this book ends up making it more like a dull botany class.
I really enjoyed hearing Mr. Martin read his story in his own voice. He's got a wry sense of humor and is an expert at timing, so the book was really enjoyable when heard instead of read.
Learning about the hard work and artistry that went into Mr. Martin's career.
If you are looking for celebrity "dirt," you won't find it here. Martin didn't write a "tell all" here, but then again, he's got way too much class for that. Great book!
