Narrator: David Timson makes this Charles Dickens Novel Live
This is the most enjoyable novel I've listened to yet on Audible.com. David makes all 58 characters come to life with such clarity that you are transported to the 1800's. I'm sure if Charles Dickens were to listen to David's narration he would laugh and cry just like I have. A big thank you to David and Charles.
In the last 11 years ... I've read 558 books ... this book is the WORST.
Why ? ... The book is like reading research notes. The book is as dry as the Sahara desert.... The book seems to be written by a bunch of scientist who want to impress their colleagues .... I usually read every book to the end .... However, after suffering through 70% of this book .. I had to delete it. Please ..... do not waste your time reading this book. Thank you !

Give me the "silver bullets" or great ideas ...and put it all into a 6 hour book (instead of 38 hours) ... Make it interesting .... and fun to read. :o)
Start over .... write a different book ...
As the narrator said half way through the book (( it wasn't edited out )) "God dammit ... I'm taking lunch " ..... I should have "taken lunch" ... before I even started reading this book.
I found my self wondering why this great book about animals / vegetables wasn't also to be found in the comedy genre. Barbara is funny, witty, and VERY intelligent. She would also make a great philosophy professor. I love the way she thinks. THANK YOU ! Barbara, Camille and Steven. This was one of the best books I've read.
Not only was the book excellent, but you can tell Kevin is speaking straight from the heart. One of the best and most honest books I've ever read. Thank you Kevin for this gift of healing words. I've recommended this book to everyone I meet.
THANK YOU KEVIN !!!!!!!
There are very books I like to read more than once, this book is one them. I think I will read this book 2 more times. Very interesting, amplicable, and thought provoking information. Thank you Daniel for this helpful, and fun book.
I really enjoyed this detailed account of the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco. Simon Winchester put a great deal of work into all of the social as well as geological conditions of that time. I loved how he combined so many short stories into the telling of this great event. I was particularly interested in the story of the Pentecostal movement and how it began. Simon takes the reader way back in time and then leads him through many fascinating stories. Since he wrote this book however, earthquake prediction has become much more accurate, thanks in part to quakeprediction.com.
Beautifully written love story. It was fun bouncing through the many ups and downs of their lives. I would agree with many things that Thea and Alice confide in, but I would have to cling to my theory that true love comes by finding someone exactly like you. I like what Tony Robbins says "Rapport is power" and "Rapport is created by a feeling of commonality. When you have something in common, that's when rapport is really ignited." "People like people who are like themselves." "People say that 'opposites attract', BULL!... you have to have similarities to be attracted." Colorcupid.com - "First Compatibility, Then Love"
What a great name Ayn Rand chose for one of the leading characters of this incredibly sensitive and revealing novel of men that walk the earth! All I can say is thank you Ayn Rand !
