I'm such a chimp
Diamon tells us why we know what we know (or think we know).
Too long for that, but it's good for long stretches (like a road trip)
Originally written in 1991 but still a great read.
Not written it.
Dunno. Her performance was fine, but couldn't save the book.
Boredom. The situation was belieable enough, but too many details weren't. Also, the book was like a twinkie...all empty calories. It was way too romantic in both the common and literary senses of the word.
Stay away unless you like fluffy, romantic tripe.
Among the best. It combines a good story with a good narrator.
I liked how he made it clear that the "sane" people were all crazy in their own ways.
There were a few laugh out loud moments, but the whole book was strong.
Yes. I listened to it over two days on a road trip.
Why do they give good books to Scott Brick to ruin?
As usual, Scott Brick butchers the book. Way too melodramatic. He should be acting in a soap opera.
The narrator should never be allowed to do American accents. In fact, he wasn't able to differentiate the English characters very well either.
The book is fine, but skip the audiobook on this one. The bad narrator spoils it.
Behind the painful details is a lot of depth. It seems to me another study in the Buddhist concept of "no-self"
The book is often incoherent and even where it's not it has nothing of value to say.
