I can't say the number of times I had to stop the audio because something was said that really struck home. I used to have a dream often as a child that was disturbing to me. It wasn't until after I "read" this book that I dug a little deeper and discovered how on the mark my recurring dream was about something I could not have known about as a 5 to 6 year old. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
The information presented was interesting and did make me look at what intelligence is in a different way. Overall this audiobook was written for the layperson, but I found the information dry in places. Having said that, I have to say that I don't regret having bought this audiobook. It is worth the time invested in listening to it.
This was the first Christopher Moore book I had "read". It wasn't quite what I was expecting but I enjoyed it. The cast of characters kept this book interesting. I found myself laughing out loud at the characters humor. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 because if I had read the paper version of this book I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much. Fischer Stevens does an incredible job bringing the characters in this story to life. In my opinion, he is hands down the best narrator on the audiobook scene.
This book won't disappoint you. It grabs you at the start and holds for the entire ride. The ending will come as a surprise (at least I wasn't expecting it). There were a few areas of the story I found unlikely, but they didn't take away from the story too much. The characters are believable and well developed. Overall, I enjoyed this audiobook.
I was hooked from the first few minutes. The story was so engrossing that I could really feel Neville's emotions as he struggled with his situation. To some extent it reminded me of the cult classic "Dawn of the Dead", but with a different twist. And the fact that this was written in the 1950's speaks volumes that a well written story is timeless.
