Enlightening, Engaging, Informative
The story of Genghis Khan and his descendants was eye opening and informative. I learned so much. And the story was so well written it was a pleasure to hit the play button
There were no characters per se. But I think Genghis and his wife were the most interesting
The greatest general you know nothing about
If you are at all curious about this subject matter. Download this book.
I think the thing that made it the most enjoyable was that David read the book. There's something extra that comes through when a writer is the one reading his own material. Especially Sedaris, who is used to reading/speaking in front of crowds.
I would pick David's younger brother. I think he was the best because of the huge chasm there is between he and David personality wise
David's sleep over when the other neighborhood boys
If you like David Sedaris, get this. If you like lighthearted but smart story telling, get this.

Modern Television Defined
There's a lot of interesting information even if you're not a huge television fan. It's an interesting book if you're a fan of any of the modern anti-hero series of today.
I love David Sedaris. The first time I heard him he was describing his job as a Macys Santa Elf and I was hooked from there. He's an understated and engaging writer.
I dont think I had a favorite character per se.
Yes. And this one has been funnier than the others Ive read
There were plenty of times were I was laughing out loud
This is a really good collection of shorts. The only problem is. It's so short. I thought my app had malfunctioned when it ended an hour and change into the recording.
I would get another book by David Simon based strictly off of his track record, but maybe not because of this particular title.
There wasnt really an ending per se. It's just a collection of short stories that all involve the same sets of characters, roughly
He was able to distinguish characters by voice affectations which was nice.
I believe its been made into a tv mini series. So, maybe.
The book is really light on suspense. It does give you a little more insight into the BPD and The Wire, but I wouldnt call it in depth, page turning, or particularly riveting.
I dont know. I didnt read the print version
There were no characters
His performance was really good. As it was his own writing, he was able to put the right amount of emotion and flow with it
There were a few. I liked the premise of the book and how it related to Nicolo Macchiavelli. The parts that made no sense, like his chronological list of bands that he hated and why, were funny but a bit nonsensical to me.
This is an entertaining book, but I'm not 100% sure why. Its one part philosophy and one part random story telling and funny commentary. I wish it were longer and Id read anything else he did as a result of this book
removing a lot of pages. there was a lot that could have been deleted without losing any of the story or the development of characters
there is no ending. you have to read the second book to get an ending
No. I like Katherine though. She did an admirable job.
It has one. And without it, you are lost.
Connie Willis is probably my favorite modern author. But, I think this was her worst book. (along with blackout) This two book set was far too long. I don't see how the editors let so much filler go. Clearly, its a good book as it won both Hugo and Nebula awards. And there were times when I was on the edge of my seat per se, but all and all, it's not her best effort. And I've read nearly everything she's written
I'd cut 100 pages out of the book and I'd make the characters stop reminding me of their plight every time someone asks them a question.
Connie Willis is probably my favorite modern author. But, I think this was her worst book. (along with blackout) But yes, I would try her books again. She's entertained me quite a bit in her other novels.
Katherine is a good narrator. I think she added to the story. The introduction added nothing, really.
No. I think the subject has been covered

There was a lot of interesting information about the time period that I didnt anything about.
The people in medieval England called the stream where they dumped their waste "Shitbrook"
There were no characters.
Go back in time without leaving your chair
The book is a bit elementary but still an informative read. I do wonder if the premise is a bit far-fetched, but it seemed to work okay
I didnt read the print version
I enjoyed learning about how Lincoln and his admirals interacted. And how the evolution of the ships of war changed the landscape
This is my first
How technology & good Leadership won a war
I wouldnt get this book if the idea of a history book might seem boring to you. I knew nothing about the naval histories of the Civil War's belligerents outside of the Monitor and the Merrimac. So, most of the book was a learning experience for me. And, since history is one of my favorite subjects, it was an enjoyable experience.
I dont know. I didnt read the print version.
Learning about the domestic and foreign policies of Henry VII and how he ran his kingdom in comparison to his more famous son
Im not sure. He was good. But Im not sure he was transcendent or anything..
A good historical book. The topics back then are all the same.. intrigue, secret plots, marriage alliances, doing odd things in the name or religion... if youre interested in the history and can get through the first part. its a good listen
