Most interesting: good story line. Least interesting: narrator
The narrator kept trying to have different voices for the characters, but failed. He's start up initially with a unique sounding voice, but after a few lines he would lose it and then all the characters voices would blend together making it extra difficult to follow.
Yes. We in America know so little about what is going on in Afghanistan. I thought it was very interesting to see from the eyes of a woman who lived it and experienced it. Very touching.
No. Unfortunately cannot compare.
Read/listen to this book
Better story, more organized
Interest in an era past
I really wanted to like this book. Unfortunately it was not that captivating. The story was humbled and jumped all around making it difficult to follow.
Spoiler alert: When they arrive at the capital and the scenes that follow
Yes, on par with other performances
When Primm died
I have absolutely no basis for comparison, but I really appreciated the depiction of SEAL training and the war time descriptions. Truly an unbelievable experience.
No, but I don't think I've ever been able to do that, it definitely flew by without me realizing
Yes, already have
Did not enjoy this one as much as Kitchen confidential. Very focused on the different players of the food industry, sometimes tough because I don't know them all.
His familiar, distinct voice
Probably not, but that mainly has to do with the fact that I don't re-listen/re-read any books. At least I'm not old enough to be there yet.
Don't want to answer so that I don't give anything away. But I guess if I have to be vague the first battle Abe had with a vampire.
Nope, sorry, can't compare
No extreme reactions here
Yes, excellent insight in to the food industry. You'll definitely want to start paying attention to what you put in your body if you weren't doing so already.
Covering the details about how food companies manipulate these three main ingredients.
Can not remember
No, but just because I'm busy.
I would, but only to doctor friends and I would try to manage their expectations.
Fats. Good humor, good advice to main character.
I was a little surprised about the amount of sex in this book. Either I'm really boring or it was a different time in the 70s. If I tried to have sex with as many nurses as what goes on in this book I would have been fired with maybe a lawsuit. Different times....
I don't know if it enhanced the story either.
Middle of the pack
When the expedition finally got on the river.
No extreme reaction
I enjoyed this audiobook, I've definitely heard/read better adventure books, but this one wasn't bad. I would recommend it to friends.
Informative, entertaining, educational
Garfield- unfortunately we just don't have leaders like him anymore. Unbelievably tough, measured and knew how to lead.
Unfortunately not too memorable of a read, nothing bad, just not extra memorable.
For me, being a physician I thought it was really interesting reading about the development of "germ" theory and how the physician that was caring for President Garfield did not prescribe to that theory.
