    The Rest Is Noise takes the listener inside the labyrinth of modern music, from turn-of-the-century Vienna to downtown New York in the '60s and '70s. We meet the maverick personalities and follow the rise of mass culture on this sweeping tour of 20th-century history through its music.

    Overall

    This audiobook is to classical music what Bill Bryson's A Brief History on Nearly Everything is to Cosmology. If you enjoyed that work, you will enjoy this. It is packed with insight not only into the masterworks of classical music, but the lives of the composers, their unique relationships with each other, and the history of the time. Its brilliant, and I could not get enough. The narrator is a perfect complement to the book.

    Story

    From Andre Agassi, one of the most beloved athletes in history and one of the most gifted men ever to step onto a tennis court, a beautiful, haunting autobiography. Agassi brings a near-photographic memory to every pivotal match and every relationship. Never before has the inner game of tennis and the outer game of fame been so precisely limned.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Open to be better than the print version?

    Apart from the incredible and beautiful story, I must say, the reader is phenomenal. So possibly yes, to enjoying the audio more than reading. I listen at the gym, so I enjoy the audio version anyway.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I feel closer with Agassi after listening... loved the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I cherish the books over time.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like sports, you definitely will enjoy this book.

    In the near future, at a moment no one will notice, all the dazzling technology that runs our world will unite and turn against us. Taking on the persona of a shy human boy, a childlike but massively powerful artificial intelligence known as Archos comes online and assumes control over the global network of machines that regulate everything from transportation to utilities, defense and communication. In the months leading up to this, sporadic glitches are noticed by a handful of unconnected humans - a single mother, a lonely Japanese bachelor, and an isolated U.S. soldier....

    Raxxillion says: "OMG! The hyperbole is the GREATEST EVER!!!!!"
    "hugely disappointing"
    Overall

    This book had a potential.. but very long winded, every chapter introduces a new futuristic threat rather than getting on with the main plot.. like an introduction that never ends. The reader is good, but a wasted talent here. He deserves better things. I can't believe the author enjoyed writing this book--it is laborious and cumbersome, and well, plain unenjoyable. I listen and become annoyed and angry.
