I hadn't heard of this book before and don't remember what made me buy it, but I'm so glad I did. The story is wonderful and Mr. Wheaton is superb. My only complaint is how the last few chapters are formatted, giving us only snapshots of the action. But well worth the money and time.
I had really been looking forward to listening to this book. But i found Mr. Brick's narration just too snide and sarcastic. It would be one thing to have the characters conversations read that way, but there was simply no break from it and it grew old. I wanted to stop, but decided to see it through to the end. Every character was endlessly preachy. Speeches going on for hours.... While I understand that the author was expressing a specific philosophy, i just wish that brevity or at least succinctness had been a part of it. Had the philosophy required this degree of explanation it may have been worth it. But too much was simply a repeat of what had previously been said. In my favorite books I find myself hitting the skip back button to make sure I don't miss anything. With this book i wouldn't even bother to rewind if I fell asleep.
