Not sure I would listen to it again, but I learned a lot and highly recommend it to anyone who believes that there are important global impact things at work in the world that are kept from us and that there are plans for the future of the planet and all of the people living here being created by people outside of our reach and without our knowledge. There are secret bankers who control the world economy and the book introduces you to them and explains the history of the bank and the people who created it and have run it for decades.
That there are actually a group of "secret" bankers that make a lot of world economic policy.
Very good job of matching the tone of his voice to the events as they unfold in the book.
When the American banker started helping the Nazi's.
In some ways, there is nothing surprising about this book because I believed this group existed. But my beliefs felt like conspiracy theories. Now I know this group of people exist and we know their names. It was like finding out that there are two people who work at the FBI named Mulder and Scully.
Peaceful. Loving. Deep
The book is relaxing in a good way and could have been much shorter but a lot of the depth would have been lost. I could tell early on where it was going and that is part of its charm. It is like doing a "light meditation." It eases you into the story and the change in the main character without being manipulative. It is not that the author telegraphs the story. I felt like the story was there and I had to move toward it. Much like the main character. (This book reminds me of the Alchemist a little in the way there is a simple story with simple messages that gradually shows its depth). Loved this book. Will listen to it again.
I love the voices he does. Great job of reading so that it was always clear who was speaking. I will look for other books he reads because I enjoyed listening to his voice.
I smiled at some of the sweetness. But it made me smile and it made me think and it made me feel peaceful. In the end the book is about love. It is a loving book and I am so glad I read it.
I will listen to it again for sure. I have recommended it to 5 people since I finished it. If you love music of any type, this book will entertain you and teach you things about music and the history of music and especially rock music. Loved this book. Loved it.
If you believe in the value of people in your community playing music, you will appreciate his discussion.
I liked the book but it is so not like the movie I think that should be made clear. The author had thought John Goodman would play the title role not Tom Hanks. It is not sweet like the movie and almost everything that happens to the character is changed. Jenny and Lt Dan and his Momma and the things he says are completely different. I liked it but I wish someone had told me it was completely different than the movie in both events and in tone.
Love the reader
For the non fiction books that use studies, histories, statistics, etc to make the point of the book it is actually quite good.
I liked how it seemed to be fairly pessimistic and how it had a kind of negative feeling in the beginning and how positive it grew as I listened. It started off and I felt a sense of hopelessness but I kept listening and gradually the book gave me a sense of hopefulness.
I liked the woman's voice. The man did just the "quotes" at the beginning of chapters and it was not bad but I believe the woman could have done those as well. They were short and maybe it made you pay attention to them more than if she had read them but I don't think so. Not bad either way.
I almost turned it off several times in the first 1/3 of the book but by the end I was recommending it and talking about various things referenced in the book to other people.
I think younger people might enjoy it, but I did not.
It was a stiff read. The writing was average or below.
Maybe if the right book was involved.
I did not enjoy this book at all so a scene or two being cut would not have improved it for me
I bought it because it was so topical. I did not think I would enjoy it based on the sample but it is the number one book on a lot of lists so I took a chance. I was wrong. I did not enjoy any of it but I am not complaining. Some books are great and some are not. Other people may enjoy this (and obviously do) but I did not.
