Anyone who is a fan of conservation and learning of other lands and cultures should love this story.
The hardship of getting around this mountainous island and the uniqueness of the place.
David Attenborough is a born story teller. He clearly loves what he does. He paints the scenes with words.
A story from a lost time.
Rules? No way.
I have never read anything quite like this. The film, 'Catch Me If You Can' comes close. Both are stories of real men who just wouldn't play by the rules.
Kevin Mitnik was made very sympathetic and understandable by the performance.
The end, when he told about his successes after prison. When his supporters started the FREE KEVIN movement, that was awesome.
The book was an education as well as being wonderfully entertaining, and moving. The long lists of codes and sites was a bit tedious.
The story is a prequel giving the series background The villains are well drawn, as usual. The story is crafted better than some of the others. Fun!
The Bishop made the story work. This character explained the mind set of Jim Degris.
Phil Gigante showed his range in this narration. He is a star. He always makes good, entertaining stories better. His performance of Jim as a teen helped the entire series.
Yes. I will have that kind of time in about a year.
The production is always good in this series.
The over the top performance and story line. A pleasure, guilty or not.
The narration. It wouldn't be the same story without this 'fits like a glove' narration.
A star performance.
A bad idea in the twenty-fifth millennium.
The story is fun. The action compelling. I hope to hear more episodes.
Above average. It is concise without loosing impact.
Azimov's review of the most important scientists in history.
Lister's discovery of antiseptics.
No. The length is good, but it is a lot to digest.
I'm very glad I bought this book.
The narration was perfect for this story. This romance novel delivered a good tail without getting too over done as romance novels tend to do. The story reflected the place and time well,
Good historical novels have some of the best elements in this book.
The narration was essential to the story. Reading instead of hearing would be much less of an experience,
No. It was just a nice experience.
Kudos to the narrator.
The characters were well drawn. The story line was very satisfying. There were no dead spots.
The story back on Neanderthal earth was quite dramatic.
Then Ponder crashed the trial.
Be ware your assumptions.
There is no evidence that Neanderthals had pet dogs.
No. The length of the book is daunting.
Edward O. Wilson's Ants.
The end when a long term patient dies. Her dignity and strength were moving.
This book could almost be used as a text of the history of the battle with cancer.
There are very well drawn characters in this book. It was a little like hearing a play. Dialogue helps drive the story. I haven't seen the cinema or video versions yet. I do see why it became a film property. The facts of the depicted animal behavior are a bit suspect. However that is a minor flaw. I had no problem just devouring this book. It is quite wonderful.
The double arc of Jacob in youth and old age.
The voice performances are critical in this book. Magnificent job.
Victory at the circus.
Quite a good read. I may hear it again.
Good expression. Professional job.
No way this could be a film.
Could have been shorter and still made the important points.
