A rivetting story, with very good historical detail. It spends quite a bit of time on shore at the start of the book, but the historical setting is marvellous, and the story told there essential for the rest of the book, and the next books too. Make sure you listen to the unabridged book (you don't want to miss anything), with Patrick Tull reading (an excellent reader).
A good introduction to that famous formula and related concepts. After listening to this, if you want more science for the layman you want to listen to the excellent "The Fabric of the Cosmos".
Not Stephen King's usual horror story (although there is some supernatural). A vividly told story, with a narrator that puts you right there.
The history told here is clearly presented, and the historical forces at work concisely examined.

Again, the author brings history to life! A gripping telling of the stories behind the historical period.
Unlike Littell's very good book "The Company" this book has no surprises in it - one can see the end from the beginning. Not very believable.
Not Littell's best work by any means, but tolerable if you've got nothing else to listen to.
A very informative treatment of genetics and the history of its science. I was worried that Watson would focus solely on his own work - but no, he gives the listener a wide view of the field.
A great spy novel - broad and deep treatment of many characters. If you need to take a 40 hour car drive, this is the perfect company. The narrator is fantastic - you should try other books he's read.
Based on this novel I tried some of the author's other books - I wish I hadn't - this is by far his best work.
