Getting a better understanding of Prosper and Eckert
Turing's Cathedral is also a history of the early days of digital computing, from a different perspective. Also very interesting.
I grew up in the forties and fifties so the story of Eisenhower was one central to my youth. I found it fascinating to gain a new insight into the man and the times. While ones political sensibilities may color your reception to the book, it was in most ways relatively apolitical, focusing more on international issues.
It works well as an audiobook, although from time to time it seemed to jump around in chronology.
I found the book surprisingly enjoyable.
This is an enjoyable listen that drew me into the story. Evokes some of the feeling of snow falling on cedars.
The central character and his emotional growth throughout the book brought me into the story
I found myself prolonging my listening sessions just to experience the world of Hotel Bitter and Sweet as it developed.
The mingling of music and love added a dimension to the story. The story works well as an audio book.
The background of the story and making of the film. It was interesting but not surprising that Robert bloch really got little from his story.
A retrospective sense of what people were thinking of Hitchcock during the late 60's. I was a great fan of his TV series.
Clear and well paced
If you are interested in Hitchcock, psycho or Robert Bloch or film making you should find this interesting.
Yes - the story really pulls the listener in.
The other Honor harrington books
A pacing and a sense of dramatic reality.
It made me cry
I am very glad i found out about this series. It has given me hours of pleasure. I am occasionally frustrated trying to keep track of the characters, but in the end this is a very fully realized universe.
Reacher's coolheadedness, and his clever insight into the solving of the challenges he faces.
The Travis McGee series by John D MacDonald
I started out reading these books, and now listen to them, ordering them as soon as they come out.
While the book itself is composed in a somewhat disconnected way, the audio book is produced in such a way to make it relatively easy to follow.
I found the book interesting, and might even listen to it again.
I enjoyed the book, but by the end it became perhaps too many variants on the theme.
Clever changes of perspective about the adventures of Odysseus
accent and tone
I read this many years ago and became addicted to Dunning's books. I regret that he doesn't write more. If you like books and like adventure you can't ask for more.
His first few novels were among the most engaging I have read - but somehow his plots have a suspension of belief rather than of disbelief. I hope he gets back in the groove.
