Good info, good ideas, great research. Pollan is brilliant.
The narrator read this like it was a novel of some sort. He sounded sarcastic and trite at times.
I remember the first Allon book and enjoyed many in the series. The story had promises, but it was just slow for me. Maybe I'm loosing interest I these types of books, but the action was almost non existent and I couldn't even make it to the end.
Yes - dull. He sounded like an 80 year old trying to be 40.
I'm sorry. I really like Koontz, and I typically love the Odd series. But this one just bored me. I couldn't get through it. This one was a fail for me.
From the write up and reviews, I thought I stumbled onto something pretty interesting. 3 hours into it, I realized I was wrong. If your idea of a good book/story is one of boredom - then this may be for you. If you want the least bit of excitement, anything remotely interesting, or something that keeps you listening for hours on end - go somewhere else. The narrator is slow and I feel as though I'm being fed cough-syrup!
Danforth is not only a Republican, but a priest at that. But his views are refreshing as he discusses the extremism and religious control over our Republican party and how they have stepped over the line. Citing several different cases and events from recent news, he shows good examples to support his theories. Although Danforth speaks slowly and is monotone virtually the entire book, his thoughts are refreshing and keeps you interested. It's good to hear someone from the Right question their current party's motives.
