Wow! what an incredible human being! This story made me and my whole life seem insignificant. I drove the long way home some nights just to get more time to listen to this book.
Good story, very Grishamish, I enjoyed it almost as much as The Firm, however I was left unfulfilled with the ending. It felt as if Grisham simply got tired of writing so he just ended it. The old J G would have thunk up a much more exciting conclusion.
didn't really like her organisation of facts nor her narration
love flashman books, but this audio was terrible, the reader was the worst ive listened to in 150 books
lost interest after first hour, just couldn't get into the story nor the reader's soft dull voice
This was my first Stephen King listen. Maybe I should have started with something milder and worked my way up, but this was too far out there for my liking. It's doused with brilliance and copious with creative imagery and words but it simply goes too far beyond my relm of entertainment. I expected something a little bizarre, but I guess I'm not ready for what King has to serve up with this one.
If you want to hear an articulate, intelligent, accented Indian man ramble and babble on about his boring upbringing and his personal opinions then this is the book for you. I personally couldn't even make it to where his so called story begins because at two hours into the listen and him still rambling on about this and that I got disinterested.
I love biographies and this audiobook did not disappoint. Oh wait, it could have been longer.
I loved listening to this story. It grabbed me from the very beginning and kept me hooked all the way until almost the end. The plot was almost believable and conspiracy types might have even thought Ludlum was on to something. The plot spiraled down to a far-fetched and unbelievable ending however and ruined an otherwise excellent listening experience.
I can only tell you my opinion of the first hour or so of this book because that's when I stopped listening. Dry.
A decent story, exciting at times, a little dull at others. I bought the book because of it's title and my interest in fire fighting. I was disappointed to find that the bulk of the book did not make reference to this. A more recurring theme throughout the book is photography, disappointment and the supression of emotions. Perhaps it should have been titled "The heart broken photographer"
