As with any series, the first isn't the best, but this is classic sci-fi. It formed some of the beginning basis for my appreciation for fiction, and will always be awesome to me! The space-opera may be hard to get used to for young readers, but the Lensmen rule! This book is worth it for credit or cash!
I couldn't even finish listening to part one. I only gave it one star because I believe the story has to be better than the reading. While a perfect and clear English speaker, the reader makes no effort to make any character voices whatsoever, and inflection is limited to basic grammar-based emphasis (like lilts for questions, and emphasis for exclamations). Grade wouldn't even be above a "D" for a public speaking class, let alone as a book narrator. She makes me drowsy. Choose a different reader, or a printed book over this disappointment!
Typical of a self-help book. For someone who's lived a life like mine, just another rehash of the obvious delivered with passion to make older concepts seem new.
American history as written by an America hater, complete with snide and disparaging asides of pure (and rather hateful) opinion. For conspiracy theorists, perhaps, a must listen, for everyone else, pure trash! Not worth it at any price.
I have been engrossed in politics since 2001 ... 3rd quarter, if you catch my drift ... but I learned A LOT from this book. If you care about your America, this is a must read!
