dont bother boring over written in detail that don't make any differance to what little plot there is. the reading is realy bad and makes the whole thing hart to follow
Hickman is good, character development and flow of the story are fine, but the production is the worst I have heard ever!!!!! The musical interludes are long and distracting.
I had a hard time finishing this book and when I did there was no real end. It just leaves most things hanging. If you need something to put you to sleep this is it.
This is a great read. I have had my ipod in my ear almost not stop for the past 2 days. The caracters are well developed and the reader did an outstanding job with this book.
This is one of the most thought provoking books I have read in a long time. The research is just over the top. As stated in one of the other reviews, this should send all of us to the scientific journals to read for ourselves the facts. Crichton descriptions of real world environmental problems and suggestions of ways to find the answers is of course politically incorrect. This politically incorrectness I fear is why this book has a low rateing and why we will never see a movie of this outstanding work.
I am a big history novel buff. Having the historical facts right is important and interesting,. However delivering those fact in a coherent and interesting manner is the basics of what makes a great novel which this is not. The time line is difficult to follow, the details become overwhelming to the point you have to take notes to follow along. If you are looking for historical economic facts in minute detail, if all your pencils must be sharp and all your socks are labeled Monday through Sunday you might enjoy this book. If you are looking for a good historical novel take a pass on this one.
well written and a thought provoking
