I truly loved listening to this book. It was witty, insightful, and just a fun listen. I was afraid this was going to be sort of dry and boring (think Anthropology 101) but it wasn't...I was very pleasantly surprised!
There's a part in the book where the authors discuss the topic of this book with another anthropologist and the guy says "what are you going to do close your eyes and imagine". I thought that was great. They took a very realistic approach to the subject by saying, "hey we don't have all the answers..but here's what we got". Combined with the research and the tongue-in-cheeck humor. It made for a very likable and compelling read!
I picked this book because it was one of those "must listens". But, it just starts out kind of slow and didn't hold my interest the way I'd hoped. I am going to try to give it another chance.
I will say this....the book is very "visual". I felt a lot of the time like I was "there". That's what kept me going to the end.
how can this be answered if you can't talk about the ending or scenes?!?!?!?
This story is just awesome. Part 2 of a trilogy that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Loved every minute!
There are a lot of parts in the book that made me laugh out loud or say "what the H3!!". Very captivating!
I don't think I would listen to the book again. BUT, that's not because it wasn't a great book. It is a very compelling story. There is a lot of rich detail. I had no idea where the story was going to end up when the book began. Just a great work of fiction. But, this book is like every pedophiles wet dream and I just couldn't handle it. The book itself was like 5hours or so..and it took me about 2weeks to get through. I had to keep stopping and walking away from it. It was just too morbid for my tastes.
Well, there are only a few characters in the book. But I have to say Lolita was my favorite...she's a precocious, snappy, little kid.
