This is a very educational and interesting look into the life of one of the most influential characters in history. I have learned a lot about him from this audiobook.
This is the type of story that sneaks up on you. I absolutely love the way the author portrays the villains in the story, and all the clever situations the story takes you through. The narrator is top notch, channeling emotions into the scenes and giving each character a voice. From the prologue, a terrible thing happens and the narrator's voice cracks while he describes it, making it feel more real.
This book does an excellent job in answering all the little questions and curiosities you may have about food, the kitchen, and the mysteries surrounding the preparation of foods for consumption. It is well researched and highly entertaining throughout.
If you're interested to know about all the groups that blame Jews, this book is for you. It sounds like a boo-hoo I'm the victim here book.
This book acknowledges that we are capable of thinking and doing mean things, and suggests a better way. If you're into self help books and want to try something different, this is a no brained.
This is an interesting look at how historians view early Islamic conquests and the explanation of their effectiveness by looking at historical documents from Muslim and other historians at the time.
The reason I give it three stars is because it requires you to look at maps in the accompanying reference PDF if you wish to get the most out of this book. While this isn't a big issue if you don't care about maps or geography; it could become annoying if maps matter to you. If that's the case, skip this and get the physical copy instead.
We all know about some stories about unpleasant experiences with waiters, and this book doesn't shy away from that.
I regularly visit various restaurants around town and have seen all sorts of service from terrible to amazing, and this audiobook helps make sense of the mindset of waiters and restaurant staff.
A little warning: some chapters are not for the squeamish and deals with medical emergencies, bodily fluids, insects and unpleasant kitchen staff revenge techniques.
This is my first movie novelization book, and I enjoyed how detailed it is without taking away from the moments that made the movie worth rewatching.
This is the first I've heard from Brandon Sanderson, but it won't be the last. I didn't know what to expect, but this short story takes place after the events of the first novel in his series, and some of these events are mentioned plenty of times in the length of this short book.
Do I regret listening to this? No.
Do I plan to go back and listen to Steelheart? Definitely. I might know what to expect but the writing is so solid, I just don't care that I know.
It is exactly what you'd expect: a history of the discovery and debates regarding planet Pluto. I expected it to be better than this.
As a Muslim, I found this story fascinating even though I disagree with the author's depiction of God. That aside, it is a well thought out and entertaining story.
The story in a nutshell: An alien contacts an atheist scientist, and to his surprise the alien believes in God. What follows are some interesting conversations regarding theology, cosmology, history and what it means to be human. I truly enjoyed it.
