This book contained way too many cusses, which shows a slight un-intelligence of the author despite a somewhat clever story line. Also much to long for just an okay ending.
I liked the role the secretary played in the book, It was almost as if her importance was downgraded slightly.
Okay performance, not my favorite narrator but he did all right.
I really enjoy a good detective book, but this on was only okay. Not worth the hype the book got. J.K. Rowling should stick to Harry Potter as her books for "adults" have been terrible and this one mediocre.
No. Roth writings seem geared towards a female audience. And Galvin just didn't cut it as a narrator, seemed like she was to worried about punctuation and not performance.
It was okay. It seemed like it might be similar to "Hunger Games" but failed in comparison except maybe to the third one.
Lead Character was funny and hard to like, is she tough and fearless or is she a wimp. Hard to tell. At any rate I am a grown man and this book is definitely for a different audience, one a little younger and more female I think.
Not from Skloot. Her writing was biased and not even good at being biased as she tried her best to make people feel sorry for the Lacks family. It only made me not care about them. They come off a little self-pitying and whiny.
The narration was pretty good.
The bit about the cells is interesting. The Lacks family is not.
I rate the book fairly low. Not my favorite non-fiction.
The book was long and boring. It seemed as if Dan Brown couldn't decide on Protagonists and Antagonists and so just kept switching them on a whim. It seemed like Brown was trying to be political and raise controversy as he might have with "The Davinci Code," but I doubt any one else got past all the tedium to get to the final bit about overpopulation.
No. In fact I quite enjoyed the other Robert Langdon books, this one just didn't have it. He either wrote because he was short on funds or his publicist made him, either way it just didn't seem like a lot was put in to it.
Not Too Bad.
Total Disappointment. Also massive boredom.
The beliefs about overpopulation that are brought up in this book are ludicrous. If This is truly the way the W.H.O feels on it its no wonder the world is in the state it is.
I would highly recommend this book. Better than most coming of age Stories. It was fantastic. The narration was great and the story Superb.
The memorable Moments were the characters, Max, Rosa, Rudy, and my Favorite Hans Huberman.
So many good scenes. And death as the Narrator draws them up very poetically.
Yes. I am not an emotional being particularly when it comes to film and literature. But this one did get to me.
Just a great book.
Good book. Intriguing story of two vastly different chicagoans and two vastly different Chicagos.
Two different plot lines were tied together very nicely.
Just a good all around read for both lovers of fiction and non-fiction. It read almost like a fiction. Great interesting points. Something for everyone.
Definately would recommend this. Even for people who are not Sci-Fi fans (I am not) this is an excellent, yeah and even more than excellent book. Written by one of the great authors of our time.
Ender, He is super Bad-A@# as the kids might say.
Surprising ending, good twist, a very satisfying way to end.
