I love technology... and I loved this book. I use Google daily, but didn't know about their other software products till I read the book. I was never really sure how they made money (and why so much). A great listen for the business and technology minded individual.
The book was confusing at first, like the beginning of a college class that has many new terms to understand. Once I got past that, I couldn't put my iPod down. I listened while riding my stationary bike, while running errands with the car, every moment I had. At the very end I was walking around the house at 10 pm because I couldn't go to bed till I finished it. My wife is glad I am done with it. She now has my attention again.
I rented the movie then I wanted to know more about "Alex" so I listened to the book. The book filled in many details that weren't in movie and I really appreciated that. I was distracted when the author interjected his mountain climbing adventure. If you liked the movie you will like the book and visa versa.
Who would have thought that a book that took place during medieval times could keep a self proclaimed techno-geek entertained. Once I started this book, I had a hard time putting it down. I listened while: riding my bike, walking, sitting on a plane, mowing the lawn, and doing yard work. Thoughly enjoyable and highly recommended (and I rarely write reviews).
Like a glass of bourbon on the back deck I started sipping in the story. Memory of running started slow, but had a great finish. I was finding excuses to listen and was disappointed when it ended.
This book is guilty. Guilty of keeping me up at night. I was listening every chance I had. Great story. Great narration. My wife is glad that I finished the book. She can talk to me without waiting for me to stop the player and remove my earbuds.
I enjoyed this book but it wasn't as exciting as others. Some chapters were just boring. Others were to simple. I was disappointed in the ending, I was expecting one last twist to the story.
Once I got started, I found excuses to pick up my audible player and continue the drama: I was getting up at 5 am to ride my exercise bike (which I rarely do) and listen. I was ignoring the morning radio news during my commute to listen. I took a long walks on the weekend to listen. When it was over, I was happy I had my life back.
It was a good thing I downloaded the book in December, I could listen to it during my vacation and not worry about interfering with my job. My wife was making fun of me because all I did for a few days was listen to this book. I just couldn?t put it down. Every little twist and turn kept me wanting more. Despite what the other reviewers say, I enjoyed the reader?s different voices and accents for the different people.
I started listening while driving to/from work. I looked forward to driving. I thoughly enjoyed it and will be listening to Lance's next book: Every Second Counts.
