The characters were described vividly.
I don't think that the story could have been changed, it just didn't connect George Orwell and Burma in the way that the author had intended.
The accents of the Burmese people.
Yes, it was somewhat informative.
This book was just not as interesting as I had hoped. This is a subject that I am incredibly interested in and I felt like a learned little that I didn't already know and was actually bored through a lot of it. It is largely focused on anthropology and a lot of what the author claims is mostly opinion (albeit, a very well studied and informed opinion).
Bold, disturbing, passionate.
I felt as if the book was being performed by the author.
Many, but describing them would give away too much.
Not at all too technical; this book is geared towards persons with little background in science.
The author has a very good personal balance with her love for her dog and her love for science.
This was a good read and informative. The author is very aware of her biases as a dog lover and does an excellent job of explaining why an understanding of the biology behind a dogs behavior can enrich the human-dog relationship.
The best book I have listened to on audible so far!
This book truly captures the way that science works in lay terms and is a great combination of History, Geology, and Biology with a special emphasis on the plight of every new scientific discovery. I could have listened to this book in one sitting. It is a must read, seriously buy this one if you are on the fence.
I learned a lot from this book, but I am still not entirely sold on overkill as the singular cause of North American megafaunal extinctions.
This topic is a little far from my interests so it isn't quite in the same realm as other titles I have listened to thus far.
I liked the perspective that I gained from this read, even though it was a little bit hard for me to get through.
Informative, real, inspiring.
The author combines the hard science with a little bit of a biography that is not distracting from the pertinent geo stuff.
No but I will now.
As a geologist/biologist I expected to be keenly interested in this book. The comprehensive historical survey lost me, however, and it became somewhat tedious to listen to the many examples. This may have been a better
