A great fantasy about a young man you works hard to get what he wants and along the way has a great adventure. Truly loved the the way the story came together from beginning to end.
The amazing thing about this book is the space suit takes on a personality of it's own. The type and function of the suite plays a key role. Detail where needed but not too much to slow the book down.
I have not but his performance was excellent.
I listened to this entire book while brewing a batch of beer listened to it from beginning to end in on shot.
This is a great juvenile fiction book which has an appeal for adults as well. If you looking for a good book for your teenagers this is a good choice. One thing I enjoy is it does not have the violence of modern teenage books like Hunger Games or even Divergent. This big is a good listen for a family on a car trip a great fantasy that every one would love to be a part of.
Brains versus Brawn
The lead character was my favorite. He is a very flawed character and yet so likeable at the same time. His personality and perspective make it so you can forgive him for being a super villain. I think the best parts for me is when he is about the get the girl he reminds himself that guys like him just don't. It is not in the script so to speak. Does he get the girl? Well you will just have to listen yourself.
Talmadge Ragan's reading of Aphrodite was great and made the story even more fun. She pulled off devious, seductive, angry and tender emotions in a very realistic way. I normally am not a fan of multiple readers but in this case it worked well.
Uh No. This is not that kind of book. It just a fun book to listen to. No it will not change your life but does every book have to do that? It was more of an audible graphic novel and better than I expected. Great fun.
It is a very good book that I really enjoyed. Was it a top 5 pick all time no but it is a great book to listen to. It is a top 5 pick for biography books I have listened to in 2011. Steve Jobs, William Shatner and then Rob Lowe's book. I really enjoyed it.
Rob Lowe is because he is so human. His image vs. who he really is inside is very much a contrast. What we see in the media and who Rob Lowe really is inside are completely different things. He is very intelligent, down to earth and much more humble than I would have imagined.
Rob has an amazing ability to impersonate other characters are quite amazing. His Chris Farley, Francis Ford Copala and Bill Clinton are quite good.
The Brat Pack Attacks. The story of how one bad reporter stereo typed a generation and how they fought back.
You can very much tell the book was read with his personal touch and with feeling. You can hear the emotion in his voice during key parts of the book.
There are so many books on time travel that are mired in the scientific paradoxes of Time Travel.
I liked this story because of the character development. Deep detailed and all with their own troubles. Each one has a motivation in this story and their past has a deep influence on their actions and reactions. Great characters make a great story.
I have not listened to Craig Wasson before but I will look forward to more books that he has narrated. One of the best no doubt. My favorite is Scott Bric, Craig is a close second
I really did have an extreme reaction to this book. Many touching scenes with a beautiful love story mixed in. There are several moments where our hero deals with the pains of his actions or inaction, feelings we can all relate to
Time travel is a messy subject to write about, so many loose ends. This book handles them in a way that it does not get in the way of the story. At first I felt that the premise of the story was ridiculous but as the story went on is was all handled in a way that worked. Great book fun read.
This book started off a bit slow but over time I could see how intricate the character development would be. I can only describe this book as epic. An amazing story of life pre WW I and Post WW I. I loved the historic accuracy but not at the cost of the story. No doubt one of my all time favorite books. I look forward to the two other books in the series. This is without a doubt my favorite Audible title both in the writing and in the narration.
