Learned a lot.
There were no characters, really.
I never was a processed foodee in the first place, but this book has definitely changed the way I've eaten. I try to avoid most all processed food for myself now and do it for my children as well.
It was an easy listen and the narrator was great, easy to listen to.
The beginning was that cross between historical story telling and greek mythology. Like a ancient saga, which is what I guess it is.
The Odyssey or Beowulf for the aforementioned reasons. It was better than that because the story turns out to be mostly true.
Where GK along with his brother decide to upsurp their mother's new husband.
The book does give a sympathetic look at Ghengis Khan and his moral vantage point vs. the old addages that he was a blood thirsty conqueror with little motivation other than bloodlust.
I loved the narrator. His voice has a close resemblance to William Shatner.
The story was told from the vantage point of every kind of cliched cartoon character you could contrive. The ex-army guy, the pts girl, the callous hollywood body guard, the scientist. No seemingly regular people with a compelling story to tell; all ridiculously "compelling" people who just happen to have a zombie story to tell.
Over the top performances. WAY over the top. The performances, the great many of them, were over forced.
The teen who was mentally 3 because of post traumatic stress. The hollywood body gaurd. The callous soldier always swearing and still wearing his swagger. I hated them all.
skip this. May be an instance where the book is worse than the movie. I can't believe this was a best seller. Worst best seller I ever read.
