This is a unique story from extended research from the author. It is very educational and entertaining. It'll keep you interested. I read the book and then later listened to the audiobook. The audiobook, as usual, was a much richer experience. Story telling is so much more entertaining.
The adventures in Italy were very interesting and enlightening.
Highly recommended and certainly worth the time and credit.
I happened upon this book by accident, it may have been a daily deal discount. I am still impressed with the impact it has had. It is a spiritual lesson wrapped in an fun adventure tale so you don't notice the effect until it is over. I immediately listened to the 2nd book - Lunch with Buddha, because I just had to. Now I'm waiting for the 3rd to get to Audible, this summer 2015 I think of course it is Dinner with Buddha. It's simple, subtle, deep and a spiritual massage. It is so funny in places. I'll read it occasionally for a tune up. Highly recommend.
First, this is my first audiobook with Wil Wheaton narrating. I must say - no one else could have possibly done a better job with this particular book and this mix of characters. Outstanding performance. He was a natural.
I really didn't expect much given the synopsis and what I understood the book to be about - teenagers and video games with lots of 80's nostalgia. Now, I only wish it were longer. So different and so entertaining. The 80's music, movies, games, and computer references are especially fun if you were at an age where you enjoyed and remembered all the media and developments that era. So many funny movie lines I almost forgot about. This book was well worth the credit and the time.
You should really like this one as well. I waited such a long time for more Glenn Cooper on Audible. Now - 2 new ones !! I really enjoyed the tale and the narrator really began to shine as the story continued. Excellent character voices and so many accents - done very well. The story keeps you interested right up 'til the end. I was so sorry it was over. So many tales within the tale. Don't miss this one if you like historically oriented, adventure fiction.
The 1st person narrative and the almost poetic descriptions and flowing rythm. The narrator was perfect for this book. A unique experience, I'll recommend to everyone and read again.
Obviously, Big Hig -- THE story.
My complaint is it was too short because it was over too soon. I was continually impressed by the poetic descriptions and deep personal points of view. I have never read Peter Heller's books and didn't know what to expect - I was completely satisfied with the choice. Bravo and thank you!
Such a creative and interesting story colored perfectly by an excellent audio performance. The second half becomes a little less interesting, but overall it is definitely worth a listen. A credit well spent!
No this is the 1st narration I have experienced with Craig Wasson - but hopefully not the last, amazing talent.
An interesting, can't put it down story. Good for any audience, except for graphic violence descriptions. Very well done. Excellent narrator. So glad there is more to come - it definitely leaves you wanting more.
First I am so impressed with the narration talent of Will Patton. I admire him as an actor but I was amazed at the art he puts into narrating this story. Thank you Mr. Patton! You made the story come to life for us. This book was required reading when I was in middle school (a very long time ago). The story is still very intriquing and keeps you hooked. It's hard to stop listening. My wife finished it in 2 days - because she couldn't turn it off. I was so disappointed when it was over. Excellent writing / excellent performance. Bravo Mr. Frank & Mr. Patton!
This book and Secret of the 7th Son (read them in order) are some of my favorite audiobooks to date. The story is so interesting and captivating it's hard to stop listening. Everyone I have recommended this to has felt the same way. If it doesn't become a block buster movie & sequel - I'll be surprised. The narrator is absolutely one of the best I've ever experienced. Cudos to the talent of the writer & the narrator and thank you both for the hours of imaginative entertainment. Please do more soon!
