As always with this series, fantastic narrator! Fans of this story will certainly be glad to hear more but this is the first book that I found myself just wishing my way forward. The first half simply limps along. The second half is better but ends with almost all major plot lines up in the air. Cliff-hangers are fine but this book is simply unfinished. Not her best but I will stay with it.
Excellent narrator - adds to the great story.
Jake of course.
Fantastic voices without overdoing it.
Well deserving of all the praise. 5 stars.
You don't have to be a finance major to appreciate this work. Fantastic book. If you were affected by the economic implosion (and who was not?) you should spend a few hours and listen to what really happened. You will be shocked at the incredibly small core-group of smart, greedy, morally bankrupt individuals that were handed the keys to your piggy bank and pulled the wool right over the eyes of every other organization who was theoretically looking out for you.
Reasonable narrator (but not in the league of Patrick Tull or Davina Porter) but relatively boring story. I am four hours in and ready to abandon an audio book for the first time (after many). I would pass on this selection.
This is not a book I would normally pick but it was fantastic. Just about any reader will enjoy this book. Great story, narration that brings it right to life, and fun from start to end!!
This book starts off well. The author is the narrator and seems likeable from the start. The first hour is great but then it just seems to devolve into one semi-interesting observation after another with no real practical point of any kind. The author makes it clear from the start that this book does not provide the secret to happiness but I am afraid it does little else. I wanted to like it but just did not. There are too many other great books for you to read out there.
I have not written a review on audible before and this would not normally be a book I would choose but this book is a must-read for just about anyone. The individual reviews here are all from such different people and the outcome is the same, a top pick. I agree! The narrator is just fantastic and pulls you right into the story. I find myself getting out of the car and talking like the characters for about ten minutes until I catch myself! Great story with great narration!!!
One of my favorite audiobooks to date. A fantastic history lesson for the non historian. I wish this was how history was taught in school!
