I'm not sure if The Rise of Ransom City is better in audio or print but I feel that the performance by the narrators makes it a worthy audio buy.
The Sisters Brothers and True Grit are both comparable to The Rise of Ransom city in their first person narrative and western themes In both The Sisters Brothers and The Rise of Ransom City the narrators take us through the story of their lives as they make their ways west for for fortune. However, in The Sisters Brothers they mean to make this fortune by killing and in The Rise of Ransom City Mr. Ransom means to make his fortune by virtue of his invention that he has dubbed the Ransom Process.
Harry Ransom is my favorite character in The Rise of Ransom City.
Unfortunately I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book.
Good book and narration. However, there are a lot of background nature sounds that are a bit confusing if you listen in the car, as I do. The biggest shock to me, though, was the utter lack of Tigger who seems to be a Disney creation.
The overall performance and story are good. Unfortunately, the recording sounds like it's copy of a cassette, one that is warped and not very good.
So far everything that I have by Philip K Dick isn't as good as their filmatic counterpart. Nearly all the storied of his that i have read or listened to see like very interesting ideas that needed minor tweaking or fleshing out to be great.
This book was definitely time well spent. The ethical questions raise by having a clone for spare parts how one would treat such a clone once met, and at a time when spare parts are needed to live, make the an engaging read.
The best description of my reaction to the ending would be conflicted.
These word describe nearly all of Stefan Rudnicki's performances: powerful, engaging, hypnotic.
Yes. As stated above this book is easily the inspiration of the film The Island. While the film has more action that this book they are both well worth experiencing.
I would listen to the Bro Code again. It was both funny and informative. Neil Patrick Harris gives a great performance.
All the moments in the Bro Code were memerable.
I enjoyed the the way that Neil Patrick Harris flawlessly delivered the narrative as Barney Stinson would have.
