I rarely listen to non-fiction, but was intrigued by the topic and positive reviews. This is a phenomenal read ... for those of us who tend to be forward thinking and reflective. A look at the driving force behind integral aspects of modern life, and where we are likely headed in the future.
This book was good in its way, but couldn't really satisfy in the end because it seems like the first installment of a series that is not continued in audible. Didn't like it enough to actually read it, so, ok as a filler in between books with a solid beginning and end.
Sometimes you just want to listen to something young and fun, that isn't annoyingly written. This is that kind of book. i'd give it 3-4 stars.
Chick lit for the 50-something set ... Since I'm a member of that group, I did enjoy listening to it. The narrator speaks with an exaggerated New Jersey accent. At first, the accent felt fake and distracting. After awhile, just kind of grows on you. Nothing particularly meaningful about the book. Just a pleasant enough read.
I found this book to be much the same as the first in the series ... Engaging at times, but, for the most part, nether here nor there. Some interesting character ideas, but never really gets off the ground. I would not recommend this series, even though I do read books of this time period.
I love this book! Captures the time period, and, more specifically, the women of the time in such a charming and thoughtful way. Great story line, through to the end. 5 stars.
I realize that I am in the minority on this one, but I found this book basically boring ... Cute premise, but often tedious. Too many characters for no particular reason. Good narration, though.
I found this book to be average chick lit. The characters were largely stereotypical, and old fashioned in their life view as well. 3 stars for some maturity in the plot line.
I usually like Patrick Taylor's books, and look forward to new ones coming out. This book, although interesting in parts to fill us in about the earlier lives of his beloved characters, was generally ho hum. Personally, I thought heavy on medicine, light on character storyline (I prefer the latter). Very good narration inspires the reader to hope for another book in the series, soon.
This book fell flat for me. Perhaps that is due to a strained storyline or lack of effort by the author. Too much time spent recalling past events. Erratic character development. I would skip this one.
I've really come to appreciate Anthony Trollope, and love his dry sense of humor. The plot for this one is, I think, the weakest of the books in this series. I give it 3 stars ... Kind of drags at times, but on the plus side not much about parliamentary procedure.
