Couldn't get through it. Not as entertaining as the radio show. Too dark of a story.
I thought there would be more about the people involved with the discoveries than there was. If you really like science and enjoy the academics of it, this is for you.
Except for the mispronounciations of some of the street names (I'm from this area), this reader did a great job. I found this story very interesting and heartwarming. Although we are not Greek, I found the assimilation issues interesting and could relate them to my own family.
If you think you might be put off by the fact that he is a hermaphrodite, dont be. This is a good story about a confused person in an interesting time and place.
Don't let the fact that the author is reading this steer you away, he does a great job. He gives just the right amount of background information on the characters and events, keeping the story moving and interesting.
The story was OK but I thought the cop side of the story was under-developed.
I was hesitant to listen to this book because I had already seen the movie but the reviews were so good that I decided to get it and I am so glad I did. As always the book was better than the movie and this was a good movie. Steven Weber is an absolutely phenomenal reader. As anyone who has read Mr. King knows, he can develop characters like nobody's business and Mr. Weber brought them to life with his heartfelt and emotional reading. Whatever the appropriate audible phrase is for page-turner, this qualifies as one. I have been listening to books for years and choose books by author and reader. I have added Weber to the top of my list. And although this book is long, I found myself sad when it was nearing the end. I have only one question, when can we expect The Stand read by Steven Weber?
Not only was this a great story, but the narration was phenomenal. I urge people who have read this book to also listen to it to really appreciate the richness of the story and the characters.
As the other reviews indicated, this was a great listen. The story was compelling and Edward Hermann does a fantastic job narrating. This is one not to be missed.
I enjoyed this book very much. A very good story with interesting characters and plot twists.
