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.
The literal genius that went into creating the first digital weapon as well as the literal genius it took to find it and figure out what is was. I really appreciated how this book read like a fictional spy novel at times. I had to keep reminding myself that this is non-fiction. If you are wondering how resourceful our government is when it comes to stopping global terrorism listen to this book.
The entire team at Norton Anti Virus. To me they are both heroes and truly the brilliant minds of our time. The way they stuck with finding the answers to exactly what was behind the Stuxnet Virus was impressive. They could have stopped at any time but they had to solve this puzzle for themselves as much as the computer community. Their dedication went so far as to learn a new computer programing language that they would never use in the real world, just to learn more about the Stuxnet Virus.
I have not but I would again. It was a very good performance.
Blessed are the GEEKS as they will dominate the earth.
I did not give the book five stars as some parts of the book are very technical. I am in the IT industry and it was a bit much for me. It did not take away from the story as a whole but it did slow the story down in a few spots. I understand it was important to have the information in there to help us understand the scope and power of Stuxnet but it was not my favorite part of the book.
I recomended this book to my daughter (she is an adult) and she listened to it as well. She enjoyed it as much as I have.
Bill Hodges without a question was my favorite. The Det. Ret. was plagued by his past and present. It was great to see how his how the character evolved in the book. He transformed himself over time in a way that was realistic as well as charming in a way.
I should say which scenes creeped me out the most. That would be a better way of saying it. Brady (the villain) is quite the arrogant jerk and any scene where he is at home with his mother just plain creeped me out. There is one scene where he is planning a murder of sorts. In the scene, things are not as they seem and I feel listening instead of reading made it worse for me. This scene really brought home the whole mother son "special" relationship that Brady had. Brady like Norman bates is disturbed but much worse in many ways. The scene where he cooks a special meal up is just plain disturbing but in a good Stephen King sort of way.
No not because it was not interesting but because when Stephen King writes a book like this, I have to read it in doses. As my Creep - O - Meter goes up and is at 10 I have to take a break. Other than that I would have listened to the entire book if I had that much time.
This is not the first book about homicide using a car and it is not the first book about a twisted mother and son relationship but is well written and the plot has a very original feel to it. Would I listen to it again NO but I did enjoy listening to it and I did recommend it to someone else.
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.
