Starts out good, so you will keep listening! This book is so disjointed and long! If you want to spend 22 hours hoping it will make sense and get better it won't ! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because I could not unclick 2 of them it was an accident, just like the purchase of this book!
Maybe this is one of those books that is better to read than listen to! I could not even finish the book! In my opinion save your credit for something better, I wish I had! I am going to ask for a refund!
I love Star Trek! I remember when pong was THE game, Pac Man was the game to beat! This story takes place in the future where people almost live out their lives in a virtual reality game. The creator of this life has died a very rich man and alone, he however leaves a gift of unbelievable wealth for anyone who can solve the mystery of the hidden keys in his virtual world! The creator loved Pac Man, Star Trek and the like because that is the world he grew up in and so his game refers back to those days. Wil Wheaton is a great reader, I think in fact I like him much better as an audible reader than I did as a television actor!
Have you ever had one of those days were you just wanted to get in your car and drive away and lose the world and the responsibility and the sameness of everyday? I have, and so did Harold Fry! It is a story of love found, love lost and found again but in a way that was unintended! It is a story of the unfairness of life at times and the surprise kindness we forget we had at others. It is about healing of a soul! Great story, you will feel yourself cheering for Harold and crying for him too! I want to make my own Pilgrimage!
I enjoyed this book from beginning to the end. What is life without our imagination? Boring and dull! Without the ability to "talk to ourselves" we might go crazy! I can relate to Max, I too had a stressful event as a child and my ability to be somewhere else in my mind spared me the pain of the moment! Reading does that for me now, it takes me away! Great book! Well read!
This is a story of what the world faces after nuclear weapon is detonated 2 miles above the United States causing an electric magnetic pulse (EMP). People, buildings and landmasses are left in tact but all modern conviences are destroyed. Life quickly becomes a nightmare. After reading this book I am taking this threat seriously ! If nothing happens wonderful , if it does at least I have a plan! Even though this book has many sad moments it also gives us moments of hope!
This is a fun, fast, quirky read! Wil Wheaton does a great job telling the story!
I stayed with this book, thinking it would get better, but in the end it was a very big disappointment! I just never understood the story line, maybe it would have been more meaningful if I had been raised in Japan. Way too much sex and the sex never made sense to the story it was just weird! Sorry I spent my credits on it!
This book took place six months before I was born, what a world I was born into and how scary it must have been for my parents! It is a amazing trip back in time to a world where my life began and never realizing growing up how close to disaster we were many times! How many times have I wondered "if only that would not have happened..." This is only the second book by Stephen King I have read, truely he is more than a writer of horror, what a great writer he is! What a treat at the end to hear King speak of his book!
Anger, struggle, joy
The theme that we all are delt blows, sometimes through our own stupidity; but growth in our soul happens when we least expect it!
