This was more a self proclaimed advertisement of Willie's liberal agenda and his views of how a talented song writer subliminally feels guilty to have made so much money using his god given gifts. This may sound harsh but to listen to the "rebel" Willie talk about the evils of sex, drugs and rock and roll, just did not sit right with his life time image of anti establishment. The book was entertaining and had some great plugs for Sirius XM and all of Willies kids.
I love your music Mr. Nelson, but I'll pass on your books.
This is a good book - I guess I'm just overdosed on Scott Brick - his dramatic style of narration is just too much - at least for this book. The reading style had me mentally zoned out and spending way too much time analyzing the story line -- I never really just sat back and enjoyed the story, I was too busy hoping Mr. Brick would speed it up or just stop acting like he was performing some Shakespearean epic. -- I am avoiding any book read by Scott Brick for a while.
Halfway through and enjoying this book. It's amazing to learn so much about a guy -- that we learned so much about in school--- but really, we learned very little. Make any sense? Well, I've learned more about Jefferson and the revolution from this book then I remember l
"learning" in school. So, good read, time well spent. Readers and story get 2 thumbs up from me.
Maybe I've just listened to too much Scott Brick but this book was, at best, OK. Brick seems to make every singe sentence and I mean every single word of every single sentence dramatic. The book and the story is dramatic - in places, but not every single word in every single sentence.
The story had some good twists an a few action scenes but all in all it was ----OK
Note to Self: First and foremost -- READ the reviews before you spend a credit or hard earned $$. This book is a stinker.
All the words and time spent preaching religion? What's up with that? There is very little story here and what there is is b o r i n g. I'm continuing to listen because - I spent the credit -
Lesson learned - Read the reviews and heed them.
Narration? Terrible - I made better girl voices when I was in High School - Phil, you need to perform on books with NO female voices. I just giggled when I heard your girl voice. Sorry - but you are getting paid to do this - right?
Next read? - Non Fiction or maybe lay back with a little John Sanford and Virgil Flowers.
This would have been a Very Good book IF the editors had taken the time to tell the narrator how to pronounce California / LA street names. It's Ce-Pul-Ved- A, nor Cepel-Veeda. Just one of many gaffs. Too bad as the story was mostly believable/probable but the mispronunciations were just too vast and cut into the enjoyment of the book. I'll try another but this one was a poor showing.
Not a good book... Maybe I I don't "Get" it but really There was no point, it was boring, and I wish I could get my credit back. Sorry Charlie, we want books that make sense.
Classic Stephen King! Excellent delivery by Craig Wasson. The story is great and the characters well developed. This is the King I truly enjoy reading. Good twist on time travel. I enjoyed the whole book AND the authors notes at the end
This was my first Neal S book and it will not be my last. Great premise and a great read/listen. A little long for my taste but due to the cast of characters and complexity of their involvement I'm not sure how it could have been shortened. Stephenson writes well and his descriptions are excellent. -- Thanks for a great time, I was almost sorry to have the book end.
Good grief - Does Mr. Cheney need money so bad that he has to republish his first book? I am plodding through the first of the three downloads and so far it is all a rehash of his recent book.... feeling a bit ripped off. Hope it will get better ---soon!
