A fascinating story. And I learned a whole lot about running. I.e., I wasn't aware of the relationship between jogging and Nike.
Yep. The book has definitely gotten me interested in running.
Possible one of the best non-fiction books I have "read" in a long time.
I am listening to it again soon.
And in the mean-time I am thinking about how I an apply some of the principals both in my software-development and in my business in general.
I am absolutely enthralled.
I am only about 1/3 into the book, and I hope it will never end.
If you love Twilight or the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse, this story is probably not for you. It is also quite a step beyond Monsterhunter International (which, BTW, I also loved).
However, this story, certainly gets your attention. It is dark, gory, and fatalistic. And the narator is amazing, once you get into it.
I loved it! 7 stars!
I have listened to the first 4 books now. I am hooked!
Lots of fantasy, action, fun, sex. Waiting for payday so I can afford some more. ;-)
I also thing the narrator is very good. But I have to admit that I listen to the books at "double speed" on my iPhone, as normal speed is way to slow for me.
A riveting story! Couldn't put down my iPod!
And I learned a lot about technical things, as well as about gaming and game technology!
A wonderful story - rich in detail and imagination. I loved it. Wish there was more!
After several hours of listening, I am bored.
I find the story slow, uninteresting, and not very sci-fi-y.
Can't say I love hearing about everything army, and the life of a sergeant in the near future. And space-suits on the moon just isn't the same as battleships, lightspeed, and aliens.
