I bought this book after my wife recommended it. After listening to most of the book and never getting to that part "where it gets better" I was very dissapointed. After explaining the plot and story to my wife she then said that she might have listened to a child's abridged version of the book. This book is repetitive, the reader sounds like a tired old grandfather. Do not recommend.
Neil Stephenson creates an entire universe for us to imagine ourselves in. The first hours was a bit difficult to listen to as the details were a bit overwhelming, but once over that you will be glad that you listened to it. The characters are deep and you feel a bond with them. Stephenson creates a new vocabulary that in the beginning seem strange but after a while you might make a slip and use them in your daily life. I got this book on Leo Laporte's recommendation and I will make the same recommendation now.
What an inspiring book. The reader is amazing, the many voices he does inmerses you in the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to listen to a great story.
