abridged would have been much less painful
Not sure, but this will be put away unfinished.
Never listened to him before. His voice and style got me through the first few chapters, but there is a limit to how much a reader can make up for bad text.
So much of the book was spent on scientific detail rather than Tesla's life. I know it would be hard to separate the two completely, but it is difficult to listen to so much detail.
In fairness, this is outside my normal listen. However, I am often happily surprised by books that are out of my normal range. This was a very unhappy surprise. At least itt was on sale.
The story kept going throughout. Decker, the dad, showed a very human side when his daughter was in danger.
He does character voices well.
I saw some bad reviews and did not expect much. Not sure what drove others away from the book, but I enjoyed it. Certainly, it was a better listen than Jupiter's bones, in my opinion.
I would definitely recommend the book. The characters were intriguing. While it didn't strike me as a 5 star book, it seems like a very promising series.
I thought that Mitchell Greenburg did a great job as a reader. I like Decker's voice the best, which is good as he is the primary character.
