This might be the most unique book I have listened to and I have listened to a lot.. At first I came close to quitting because it sounded contrived. At the end I feel the author wrote a book so unique and so imaginative that the word genius comes to mind.
The narrator is very good however the production was somewhat lacking with pauses where there should not be.
Recommendation: If you choose to listen to this book, spend the time to follow the plot and characters. I did not at first and lost the thread to some of the story lines and characters.
This is the only book on tape that I plan on re listening to. Bravo Nick Harkaway it would interesting to meet you.
Great story wonderfully written and narrated. One of my favorite fiction audio books. Action, mystery, well developed characters and many intrigues. Reginald Hill is a writer I had not heard from but I will be purchasing his other books.
If your a genius theoretical physicist you might understand most of this book. If you could not understand half of it like me you might still wish to listen and enjoy it. The science and math explanations were completely over my head. However listening to them was important. It made me realize how brilliant this man was in a time when computers were not in existent. This is a biography of one of the greatest individuals in history. Not just a mega genius but an approachable funny likeable man whose theories have changed and are still changing the world. Listen to this book!
Jim Harrison is one of the best writers I have ever listened to. Brown Dog will forever be in my memory as one of the most unique individuals ever created in literature. How a writer could create such a detailed three dimensional character as BD is nothing short of genius. This is also a wonderfully engaging book with many unique characters, both human and animal, and upstate Michigan rural adventure. Lots of trout fishing, hunting and bawdy sex. Listen to this book!!!
Tess Gerritsen is a very good writer. This story is well developed with nice twists. Tanya Eby narrates this book very well with nice separations of characters.
I love Adrian McKinty's writing. His Dead novels are among my favorites. I think he is a little out of his element writing a semi young adult SF series. Doyle is a great narrator and the book as a whole was entertaining. I will be finishing the series but hope McKinty goes back to his forte.
This book is different. Weird book about weird people. I saw and enjoyed the movie and thought I would give the book a try. Could not finish. I guess the movie did not dwell so much on the well (physically that is) people enjoying going to meetings for people with rare terminal diseases and pretending to be one of them. Colby was a good narrator.
This book gives an Australian perspective with regards to the war in Papua New Guinea and the unbelievable courage by the Australians under unbelievable hardships. The Australian soldiers being needlessly sacrificed by the ignorance and ineptitude of generals MacArthur and Blamey was unforgivable. Very well researched and narrated.
This was a nice read for wasting time. Not deep but not boring. Need to say more so that I can summit.
For me this book was a little slow with too much non resolution. That being said I think it was very original and well written.
Krueger writes a book with a very flawed protagonist and realistic people. I will enjoy his other works because I feel he is a very good writer with a very original presentation.
