Sh*t my Dad Says was good, this one, not so much???sorry Justin! I did not enjoy this at all, not even the few ???Dadisims' interjected here and there!
Having the story told to my by the likes of Joe Barrett is better for far then reading it myself. I have to say this has to be my favorite book in the ‘Joe DeMarco’ series, and I’ve listened to them all. Now I can’t wait until July ’15 and the 10th book in the series when ‘House Rivals’ is released. Nice work, Mike Lawson, and thank you!
I know Joe DeMarco better now!
He’s the best of course, and tells the story very well, right down to the Russian accent he uses for the assassin, Oscar the cook!
When Joe got to confront Quinn in the Senate building.
Thanks again, Mike Lawson for the great stories!
...just listen to first sentence, it hooked me. Andy Weir could easily be a sitcom writer. ‘The Martian’ is loaded with many humors moments.
The opening sentence of course!
Laughed a lot!
I downloaded the ‘The Martian’ based on a tweeted recommendation by ‘Andy Ihnatko,’ the tech writer at the Chicago Sun Times. I listened to the entire story in one day...couldn’t turn it off, it’s that good!
Yes I would. The story is plausible and well written.
Joe DeMarco of course!
Actually Scott’s narration was the only fault I found with this audio book--it didn’t work for me!
When Emma ate Donnelly's lunch near the end. I loved they way she owned the guy, is was perfection!
I’ve been listening this series out of order...turns out that was an ok idea. Joe is Joe regardless of where you meet him!
I’d recommend it if it were read by someone other than Ferrone, say Eric Conger who read all seven of the Virgil Flowers stories...he’s great!
None come to mind.
Clean up the audio; random noises etc.
No, not this book, but certainly some of Sanford’s later work for sure.
Reading the Kindle version presently...no annoying narration.
Feel kind of cheated with this one. Some funny stuff but certainly nothing to write home about. It was more like 8 hours of listening to Carolla ad-libbing, not narrating a book. Would I recommend this book to friends...probably not!
Reviews have a 15 Word minimum. Really, there???s only one word necessary to describe how I feel about ???The Art of Racing in the Rain.??? That would be - Awesome.
Miss you Dusty???loving you Fred!
I must say, I didn???t learn anything I hadn???t already gleaned from reading Walter Isaacson's book shortly after Mr. Jobs passed away.
Adam Lashinsky's effort was good but really, kinda of sterile and business like. I guess that was his intention. Still a good read if your looking for your Apple info fix!
Murakami???s story was excellent, however, the narrator that read parts by Mr. Ushikawa absolutely destroyed the listening experience for me. What annoying ???Spit Mouth??? clicks and slurps???forget about the violent gasps for air. If / When I figure out which of the male contributors read the Ushikawa character, I???ll never purchase another audio book he???s involved in.
First off, I disagree with those who???ve written their thoughts before me. Dylan Baker did a ???nice??? job with his narration of this story. It wasn't the ???story??? I was expecting from Isaacson but informative all the same. Mr. Jobs wasn???t so much a genius as he was a bully, a gifted bully and manipulator of people that got his way or cried on those rare occasions when he didn???t. That said, I???m in awe of the man and regret his early passing.
Finally a view of Steve Jobs not obscured by walls and corporate security???we finally got to see the real guy!
