It was very well performed and extremely interesting. The muslim periods were difficult for me to keep track of because the names all seemed so similar. However, it would rank it in the top 80% of audiobooks that I've listened to.
There was humor, scandal, and very interesting connections that were peppered all throughout the book. I felt like it was tied together very, very well.
Buckle Up - This is a Long, Long Story
I really liked Mark Helprin's "Freddy and Fredericka", so I was surprised that I didn't like this one at all. I could even finish it. The writing included so many oxymorons that it got to be joyfully agitating (see what I mean? It didn't make sense). Also, I could understand the plot. It was weird.
I couldn't understand what was happening. It seemed like it was happening at a real point in history, but then there were really weird fantasy aspects to the story that I didn't understand. I just didn't understand the premise of anything in the story.
I did like a scene where Peter Lake first arrives in New York, and he encounters the man with the monkey.
I would say it's in the top 10.
I would have liked to, but it is so well written that I could listen to it in bits and pieces and not feel like I was robbed of any of the experience.
I love hearing Zig tell inspiring stories. I am a coach so there are even some that I like to remember and tell my players.

No, I liked listening to it periodically when I had the time.
