I have to agree with the earlier review, very enjoyable book. Good science, good story, good sense of humor.
great bad guys
Always good crime stories, and great villains. But Alex is a boor. He is continuously doing stupid predictable things that complicate his work and annoy at least one reader.
Revisiting and learning more about an old friend, Roland of Gillead. And I always love it when King reads his own works, he is a great story teller.
I enjoyed it. Some of the stories were eye-rolling boring but some were quite good. I listen to audible when I drive, and a couple of these had me eager to get home to my wife (or someone's). I like girls, and these are definitely all about girls. I especially liked the narator Alison Valentine, yummy voice. I'll definitely buy another.
Totally enjoyable read/listen. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good story in a non-traditional environment. Character development was rich and a cheeky sense of humor prevailed. The first thing I did when I finished the story was to go on-line and see if there was a series, I hope there will be.
I noticed none of the positive reviews made it to the front of the list. The plot was fun, the science was credible, the characters were two dimensional -- total Crichton. Many of the reviewers sounded like characters from the book, making environmentalism an act of faith and not science. If Crichton's point was that I shouldn't trust the environmental special interests any more then I trust industry special interests -- I think he made his point. A good read. It will need a good screenwriter.
Fans of the Gunslinger will not be dissapointed in this book. King's comfort and skill in telling the story of the Dark Tower continues to build. I highly recommend it. King writes for a listening audience.
