If you believe that the environment our concern for the environment should take precedence over our concern for human life, then this book is for you. If you believe that turtles and trees should be given the same rights as humans, then this book is for you. If central government and the new world order is something that you look forward to, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Personally, I can't imagine what Glenn Beck was thinking about when he recommended this book. The author even alludes to pulling the plug on Granny in order to save on valuable resources. I thought I would receive valuable insight on how to handle the expected crash of the dollar. Something in the order of where to invest my funds. Instead, I was flooded with new age nonsense about the coming emerging consciousness of humans with the planet. I felt as if I were reading a Bruce Lipton book. I strongly recommend you don't waste your credits on this book and instead purchase ???How to Survive the End of The World As We Know it???.
I enjoy a good zombie book just a much as the next person, but this was an abject excuse for a zombie book. It was full of inconsistencies followed by gaping holes in the storyline. Had I known that characters were going to be created for the sake of filling a void with no intent of developing them, I would not have bothered to listen until the end. I kept hoping that the woman zombie character would come into play, but it seems the author just forgot all about her. The humor was sophomoric and difficult to ignore. I wish I could comment about the ending, but I still can't figure out how it ended. I suppose I will have to re-listen to the end, but I can't bare to put myself through the ordeal.
I'm not sure.
I can't say I have a favorite scene. I kept hoping it would get better.
This one should be free.
This is perhaps the best book I have listened to this year. The narrator is excellent and you will be unable to put this book down. This book gets close and personal as a single man tries to free his country from the grip of terror brought about by Islamic terrorist. It is too bad our country has turn a deaf ear to the cries of woman and children that are being slaughtered on a daily basis in Iran.
At first, I thought I would enjoy this book a whole lot more than I did. I was ready to put it down after a half hour but thought, dammit I paid for this and I will listen. Fortunately, it picked up and it held my interest up until the hero revealed where he came from. I found myself hating the friend of the women being pursued. And the more her character was developed, the less I wanted to hear about her. I labored somewhat to finish the book, but thought that overall it was worth listening to.
This book could have been easily been just as good without the vampires and other silly stuff such as super natural powers of the heroin and others, but it did not detract anything from the story line. I would gladly listen to a part two of this book if the author ever considered writing a sequel.
A very well written book that will give you a new perspective on Alzheimer from the victims point of view. Everyone should read this book.
Normally this is not my type of book. A little too erotic, but the author captured the flavor of the era and kept my interest. The narrators were great and I might consider listening to more of this authors books. I only wish that more time would had been devoted to the development of all the characters of the book.
Fast paced and interesting, not like the boring movie. For those of you that saw the movie, relax. The book and the movie have very little in common. The narrator was clear, and except for being overly dramatic, he did a fairly good job. There where a few parts that where not intended to be funny, but after listening to the narration, you have no choice but to laugh at the over acting. It's a shame the author ended the book when he did, this book had a lot of potential and the author could have stretched the ending.
Perhaps I am impatient, but I allowed myself one hour of intense listening to try and figure what the heck this book was about. I was intent on trying to grasp or comprehend the subject matter. The experience of listening to this narration was akin to listening to someone recite random words out of a dictionary. I don't know what this book was about, nor what is has to to anything. I am perplexed as to why it was even written. Not only was it uninteresting, but it was beyond comprehension.
If you can make it through the forth chapter, then this book is for you. Unfortunately, I don't have the patience. I kept hoping the book would stop irritating me and develop some kind of plot, but that was not to be the case. In desperation, I jumped to the last chapter of the first book only to find just another tedious list of of complaints of wrongs perceived or real by the main character.
The author has obviously put a lot of work and has insight on the autistic mind, but this book is for those that are interested in studying the social issues of autistic people. From the title or intro, I thought I was buying a Sci-FI book.
