    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was an odd collection of stories from an English author. I did not enjoy the listen. I should of spent the time listening to a longer book. The audio book was just not interesting to me.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Rebecca a classic tale. Something I can get into and enjoy a plot and time line that makes sense.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes the narration was just fine.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No I would not.


    Any additional comments?

    Just too odd ball for my tastes.

  • FREE: The Future of a Radical Price

    Story
    (1160)

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    Christopher says: "A fascinating listen"

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not have recommend this because it is not what you may think it is. This is a book on economics. It is very scholarly and complex. A compete study of why free works and how it works. It limits the scope to the digital world. It is not about getting free stuff at all. I was surprised at the quality and length of this book. It was free. I believe the author when he says free is the future of the digital worls. He lays out an explanation for his idea and it makes good sense. If you are a online business person the book could be of great value.


    What could Chris Anderson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There is a place or two in the book that he seems to have changed mikes or done something where the voice level or tone changed. For a moment I was wondering what had happened if there was a different narrator..


    What aspect of Chris Anderson’s performance would you have changed?

    None


    Do you think FREE needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The subject was well covered. Unless future changes to the digital world dictate immense changes in present technology.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are starting a online business consider the book.

    Stephen Leeds, AKA 'Legion,' is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society.

    If you could sum up Legion in three words, what would they be?

    Action,adventure, mystery


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character had multiply personalities and this added some much interest. It expanded what he could do.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any others.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I wanted to enjoy it.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish it was longer. I felt as if I was left hanging at the end. I could imagine so many possible outcomes and further adventures for the main character.
