I've played the Halo games on Xbox360. I was told this book tells about the story before the 1st Halo game. I'm not sure how non-Halo fans would like this because without playing the game I wouldn't have felt attached to the people in the story. There's no reason to really care about them. But as a Halo fan I liked learning about the pre-game experience and how everything began, including why I wear a large green armor.
I tried to get involved in this book but I just don't care about the people. They're boring to me. Also I like more light hearted books. I’m not into book that have curse language and incidents of rape. This book must be for some but not me.
I first listened to Leave it to Psmith and liked it. I liked this one even more. For anyone that likes the writing style of Wodehouse you'll like this one.
If you like other Wodehouse books or books similar to Charlie's Aunt or the Importance of Being Ernest then you will probably like this. Light hearted and fun even though you know how it is going to end.
I was looking for a few books to listen to on the flight to India. I picked this book and one called Snakes and Ladders. I didn't really enjoy this book. Actually, I didn't finish listening to it because every time it put me to sleep, I really liked the voice of the reader. If you're into History (or if you're into to numerous dates and names) and want to learn about this time period it might be for you. If your going to India and want a little history about the Taj Mahal then look else where.
I was searching for a few books to listen to on the way to India. I really enjoyed this book. It's not so much a history book, it's more about a person telling about her views and experiences on growing up in India. I highly recommend the book for anyone traveling to India. I wouldn't have listened to it if I hadn't gone there. If your not planning on going to India then I wouldn't recommend it.
Very scientific and hard to get through at points.
