An excellent yarn and the equivalent of a book that you can't put down. The story is well structured and apart from the usual character set up at the beginning of the book I was never bored. The narrator’s change of pitch at the start of some chapters was a bit off putting, though this didn't detract from the overall experience. Can't wait for my next credit to grab Kokoda by the same author.
Hmm, clever, unique and daring. I grew up in the eighties and connected with almost every part of Ernie Cline's wonderful book. When I found a part that I wasn't familiar with I would pause the book and look it up on Google. I ended up listening to Rush 2112 and rented War Games, which I had watched when it first came out but really enjoyed watching again.
I liked the references to the eighties and video games and the fact that by creating a virtual world he made almost anything possible. Even giant Japanese robots LOL
This book does not go into the details of becoming a SEAL as many others have already done but instead talks about operations and as indicated int he title the killing of UBL. Very enjoyable, one you will get through quickly.
For me yes. I have difficulty reading full novels as I am usually too tired. Listening to Audiobooks in my car takes the monotony out of driving.
Peter has great voice control and makes the story flow.
My favorite scene was the the battle of Long Tan
Sounds like they dragged someone out pf the 50's to narrate this one. Really took away from the experience. Maybe better to try the print edition IMO.
Entertaing and incitefull read from a person who worked inside google during it's startup period through it's major growth period.
This book covers not only the life of Charles kingsford smith but the history of aviation itself up until the 1930,s. A must read for any aviation of war buffs.
A great book and really well read, I would love to see more buy this author. Annie, you can read my audiobooks anytime :-)
Couldn't finish this one, great material for insomniacs. If you are really intereted in this then buy it, otherwise stay away.
An engrossing read which will keep you entertained to the end. Write some more like this please Peter.
I found the story interesting and engaging. The narration however seemed rushed and lacked any emotion. It seemed as though the narrator was working to a budget of either time or money. A real shame. I would encourage John Lee to go back and listen to this reading, slow down a bit please.
