Every American interested in justice and reason in our complicated world situation should read this book once a year.
The hero, (Author) Natan Sharansky, was a russian political prisoner for years, for trumped and totally false charges precipitated because he was a Russian of Jewish decent, who had the courage to speak out carefully for hman rights.
He has been active in Isreal since his release in 1986, and has been deeply involved in the peace efforts since that time. His insight and integrity are unimpeachable.
This book is POWERFULLL!!
After reading just a bit, I stopped, and did an extensive internet search concerning his life, activities, and character...and,..I was rewarded and frankly tranfixed by his marvelous mind and moral integrity.
Please read this book. It is impossible to put down!
Simon Vance, the reader, happens to be the finest voice on audible to date..as well!
Simon really does read many of the finest books on the audible site.
Bless both the writer and the reader!
If you enjoy AC Clarke, Brim will thrill you. One of the greatest true science fiction writers I have read in the last 25 years.
His awards through the years are ssoooo well deserved. The more you are aquainted with real science, the more you will love Brim's works!
Simply put, I believe this is one of the finest pieces of fiction I have read for a long, long time. It is wonderful as an audio presentation, as it truly is a 'Story' as in 'Story telling'.
Mitch Albom,(as some may know, is a syndicated sports writer)and also the writer of 'Tuesdays at Morrie's'.
He has now written his first piece of fiction...and it is absolutely captivating, beautiful, and frankly.. profound!.
If you want to read a story that will captivate your mind, heart, and soul, read this book! ..as well as Mitch's other book 'Tuesdays at Morries' the books are both riviting. I Wish I could give it more than five votes!!
This is a great book and will be rewardimg for the readers of the more scientific and mathmatical literature. If you like the works of Hawking,Einstein,and their peers, as well as the genera of articulate historical, geographical, and cosmological writings...this book is for you. If you are well read in science, math and history...Get This Book!
Audible folks, why start the series with book TWO???
Very good read, from a 'middle of the road' reader...
But..Ahem, Most Kind Audible folks, ..
two things are missing here, perhaps.
1.The unabridged version (always critical) for this type of non-fiction.
2.Book 1,"Bias" The NY # 1 best seller and precurser to this audio document.
(I have read both 'complete versions' and can guarentee the readers of this book that the impact and cohesiveness is greatly augmented by reading the former publication as well!
They are really a two part opus in content,.. and should definitely be assimilated in tandum.
Thanks in advance, Audible!
Terry realy out did himself here! Some of his work has ,alas, left my soul ..wanting. ..not so here!
Qne of the most refreshing books I have read in a good while!
Gentle Reader, learn your literature, your philosophy, your history, your religions, folkways and moreways, and read this book,and those of you who 'just don't get it'... read it again, then realize the quality of the weave of human soul and mind in this magnus opus of Koontz.
This is surely one of the most well 'studied' works of Koontz's many books; rich in symbolism, with a structure that is marvelous and complete, and the message can reach the very core of... the rich man ...poor man..pagan,..priest..."forget about MOVIES" (quote to guide the message thrust of this book).
I have read then all...all sci-fi authors for the past 50 years and this is one of the finest(TO ME..N0 1)..And audible has RECENTLY put out ,..for us.. the entire four book HERITAGE SERIES (unabridged) no less..of THE BEST OF this scientest's great works. This book is next to last of the series..read them in order if you can..but each is really a masterpiece.
The author, is not only tops in the sci-fi field, but is a well educated scientest..in physics, quantum mechanics, theoritacal phsyics.(cosmology to quantum mysteries and on) AND he incorporates this universal understanding and level of knowledge into his works!!!..Sci fi readers...read ...and beg the author for more!!
