It was very well performed and extremely interesting. The muslim periods were difficult for me to keep track of because the names all seemed so similar. However, it would rank it in the top 80% of audiobooks that I've listened to.
There was humor, scandal, and very interesting connections that were peppered all throughout the book. I felt like it was tied together very, very well.
Buckle Up - This is a Long, Long Story
I liked that it wrapped up the trilogy in an interesting way, and I love how all of the story lines from the first book are continued--it's a fascinating way to write a book. However, the book was so completely liberal; that as a conservative, I was very disappointed. All of the conservative leaders were maligned and the liberal leaders were exalted as the heros. Almost every single couple in the book gets involved in an extramarital affair and ends up getting a divorce--at least have some variety in the choices that the characters make. Overall, I was disappointed in the values and the way that some of my heros were portrayed Ronald Reagan specifically.
Something on economics probably. I need a break from fiction after this really, really long one.
I liked the Russian and German characters that he did.
I am inspired to make sure that I encourage people to read more history so they are not swayed by a novel with a liberal agenda.
I really liked Mark Helprin's "Freddy and Fredericka", so I was surprised that I didn't like this one at all. I could even finish it. The writing included so many oxymorons that it got to be joyfully agitating (see what I mean? It didn't make sense). Also, I could understand the plot. It was weird.
I couldn't understand what was happening. It seemed like it was happening at a real point in history, but then there were really weird fantasy aspects to the story that I didn't understand. I just didn't understand the premise of anything in the story.
I did like a scene where Peter Lake first arrives in New York, and he encounters the man with the monkey.
I would say it's in the top 10.
I would have liked to, but it is so well written that I could listen to it in bits and pieces and not feel like I was robbed of any of the experience.
I love hearing Zig tell inspiring stories. I am a coach so there are even some that I like to remember and tell my players.
7 Habits of Highly Effective People - Stephen Covey
No, I liked listening to it periodically when I had the time.
