Wonderful historical reinvention
Into Thin Air - A similar venture into the Mt Everest imagination
No. Excellent performance.
Yes. The perspective of it being told by someone that has passed away and wrote their story to be passed on to the author.
Brought tears to my eyes. Loved listening during my long commutes.
For me as a male reader it read like a book for a woman, written by a woman, read by a woman, about women. I can be in touch with my "feminine side" same as most males but it felt to "girly" for me.
Probably not. I usually dont return to authors of a book I "endured" to finish.
I'm not sure if a male performer would have given me the balance of male/female that I needed.
The protagonist, Mark Watney's positive attitude of never giving up, having a sense of humor in the most adverse circumstances, and always approaching each day with purpose.
When earth discovered he was alive by observing a photograph of the site by satelite.
R. C. Bray was Mark Watney!
Yes. It made me wished my commute was an 8 hour drive instead of 2 hours.
Astounding detailed descriptions of science without boring me and making me want to put the book down. Not easy to do since I'm not that interested in science but I love cheering for a good character hero struggling to survive and doing it cheerfully!!
I would believe that I would have been equally satisfied.
The relationships lost, then transformed.
The scenes where the relationships were lost at the beginning.
Looked forward to my commute so that I could listen.
Brought tears to my eyes! I love when I can invest emotionally in a story and identify with authentic charecters regardless of race or species!
Maybe, but not soon. I invest emotionally in a good story. That takes a full tank that is empty at the end. I fill back up with looking forward to my next investment.
Yes. Jack Reacher never lets you sit back in your seat. I dont want to.
It took a long time to accept Dick Hill's presentation. I struggled through the first 1/3 of the book but I hung in there.
I love Jack Reacher. I can relate to who he is and why. For that reason, I would find it hard to react emotionally or expect him to change. He does not emote. I understand, so neither do I as I read.
I have read all of the Jack Reacher series and have not been disappointed. They are all 4 to 5 star. This was easily 5.
