I would recommend this story to friends who were interested in the NFL.
The personal accounts of players were fascinating and bone-chilling, particularly the Troy Aikman story.
I listened to this book a little at a time because parts were fascinating and other parts were very heavy on medical or people I didn't care about so I needed to break things up.
I enjoyed the book but they could have cut it down by a couple hours.
I love Matthew Berry and I love his stories on his podcast, I was surprised that so many of the stories he used were not fun or interesting. I really didn't think it was fun or funny that people make losers in their fantasy football leagues get terrible tattoos, etc. I also just don't care a whole lot about Berry's college leagues.
Not at all. If Berry puts out another book I'll give it a try.
I think Matthew Berry is a good story teller, he has a good voice, you can tell he enjoys what he does and talking about what he does.
I did enjoy this book, I love the characters, I really enjoy Tufo's writing AND I found it to be less compelling than the other books.
I would probably recommend the read the book if they love the series, otherwise stop at 6.
Weird question... No
Love the series, lover the characters, love the author, I think it's a little hard to keep things going sometimes.
Did not read print version.
Several parts of the book stuck with me. I loved the opening sequence, the children's basketball story, and the Martin Luther King story. All of the stories are just so captivating.
There is no one moment I found moving, instead I found one story after the next to be riveting.
I think this is his best book yet.
I did enjoy the many little stories he told.
It was similar to Matthew Berry's fantasy football book in that both used a variety of short stories.
My favorite parts were the discussions on Alex Rodriguez and Basketball.
You wouldn't make a film of this.
I was a little disappointed that he's talked about virtually all of this on his radio show so there was very little in the way of surprises.
I would recommend this to a friend because it is a solid and entertaining book. I especially enjoyed that the characters thought they had done something good in the first book resulted in terrible consequences here in the second book.
I would compare this book to Warbreaker only to the extent that Sanderson always uses different and interesting magic systems.
This is another great performance by Michael Kramer.
I did want to listen to the entire book in one sitting but it was far too long to do so in less than several days.
I enjoyed the development and evolution of the characters and the game of cat and mouse between Vin and Ruin.
The fight between Vin and Ruin as well as the fight between Marsh and Elend
Another great performance.
Not likely because the pace was slow bordering on monotonous.
I was pleased with the ending.
This wasn't my favorite Michael Kramer performance. He is a great voice actor but none of the characters were great in this book.
I suppose the main character because he is one of the few people that makes it through the book.
I wanted to enjoy the book but I had a hard time getting into it. As the book progressed it felt like a series of unrelated events loosely tied together by flat characters until they die off. I think the author is talented and he is very detailed in many of his descriptions, but the timeline of the book seems to be about 12 hours and the audio book is close to 10? I got a little bored despite the action.
I think the thing I liked the best was the brutal honesty. Kyle seemed to tell things as he saw it, for better or worse. He didn't pull any punches and doesn't always paint himself in the best light. I also like the parts of Kyle's wife and the perspective she adds.
The thing I liked least was the constant rah-rah attitude toward fighting and killing.
On the whole I did enjoy the book but it is way down my list.
I didn't enjoy the narrator very much, I felt like he was over-playing the southern accent.
I would have enjoyed hearing more about the people Kyle served with, especially from the perspective of other soldiers.
Not read print version
I really enjoyed several parts including the larger part B.T. has in the story, and threads from the first book that Tufo brings into the second. I always love Tommy and the moments he spends with Mike.
When I started the last book I thought Sean Runnette was just ok as the narrator. By the end of the second book I couldn't imagine anyone else or anyone more perfect. The way he dryly delivers all of the sarcastic inner-monologue is perfect. I think he's great.
This really wasn't a book I wanted to read in one sitting. Unlike the first book it took me a while to get into the second book. This book is depressing because of the splitting of the group.
I think Mark Tufo is one of the most clever writers I've ever read. I love the character development, the interplay, and how it feels like Tufo has a vision of where the story is going.
