The book itself was decent, not stellar. I might have liked it a bit more with a better narrator - he sounded like he was constantly congested.
I may look into listening to other books by this author, but we'll see. I wasn't terribly impressed.
This is a great book, I found myself laughing outloud and remembering lines from the book in the middle of the day and laughing (and freaking out my coworkers in the process!). Fisher Stevens does an EXCELLENT job reading as a Beta male. You'll find yourself wishing you could "kitty" people throughout the day so that they'll "take the big ambien!"
This audiobook should have been better, but unfortunately, the narrator isn't able to deliver what should be some very funny passages. I enjoyed "A Dirty Job" quite a bit, Fisher Stevens read it very very well. I'd recommend passing on this one.
These books aren't terribly well written and the characters are a little hokey, but the events are what hook you. This narrator wasn't very good, but if you've listened or read the rest of the series, you've really gotta get this one...for the events.
Better than the movie, and the narrator is incredibly good. Paul Michael is one of the best narrators in the industry, and Dan Brown keeps you hooked with his twists and turns.
I was so disappointed in this book. It was recommended to me by a friend as sort of a "bible as a novel," but wasn't very impressed. There were parts from the bible that were left out that I was looking forward to hearing, and the parts that were included weren't terribly well written.
Also, this book is a big, bright reason why authors should never, ever read their own material.
I couldn't stop laughing. Dave Barry is great and John Ritter delivers the material very, very well. It's only 3 hours or so, and very lighthearted, so give it a listen if you want to have a fun little diversion.
This was really well written and a bit frightening. It's amazing how devastating this disease is and how often and quickly it will kill. This book was eye-opening and written like a novel.
John Corey at his best. This is the book that got me hooked on Nelson DeMille. There's a great element of two sides of the coin here, and it's alot of fun to listen to John Corey's wisecracking and Assad Khalil's fanatical obsession.
I read this book when I was in high school, and the audiobook definitely does it justice. My girlfriend listened to this and really enjoyed it too, and she likes some, but not much sci-fi stuff. She really enjoyed it, wound up listening to it in about 5 days and can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.
This takes place after Ender's Game and begins a sort of different type of story. Ender's Game is more action based, and the rest of the series has more geo-political and sociological themed. I'd recommend giving this a listen, but if you find it a little too thoughtful for you, you may want to skip directly to the Shadow series - those follow Bean, and are written more similarly to EG.
