Complicated plot that intersects in the end.
Dismis Hardy, the central character in the series. I had listened to five other books in the Dismis Hardy series and wanted to listen to this first book in the series.
No, it was too long for one setting.
I found it a bit difficult to keep the various threads of the story straight until they began to converge in the last third of the work.
I agree with Darwin's Theory of Evolution and the thesis of this book seems to be a good supplement to that theory. However, the data in support of the theory is too technical for a layman like me to fully understand. A biologist might find it worth a listen.
A book with many twists and turns. It kept my interest until the end. In fact, I was surprised by the ending. I wasn't thrilled by the narrator, often it seemed that he was whispering. Still, quite worth the listen for those who like thrillers. Since I live just across the river from Philadelphia, I was pleased the city was the site of the story.
For a long time I have enjoyed the books of Dean Koontz. This book was no exception, although it was very different from the Odd Thomas Series. I especially like works that deal with "Time Travel" as did this one. Still, I found the interaction with Adolf Hitler somewhat fanciful. Worth a listen.
I found this assessment of the politics of the past 30 years to be very insightful. The authors provide a great way of connecting assessment to examples. A must read (listen) for those who want to understand the gridlock in Washington. I am wondering if the Middle Class can survive.
My first listen to this legal thriller series. It was good enough that I will try Book 2 in the series.
One reviewer said this book reminded them of Huck Finn. I agree, but it also reminded me of To Kill a Mockingbird. I especially like the style of the narrator, it was perfectly suited for this story. The book definitely had a point of view, without being preachy. I would especially recommend the book for a discussion group such as a book club.
I don't usually give five stars in all categories, but I did this time and it was well deserved.
I was hoping to learn more about the job of a Broadway producer. Instead I learned of a producer who taked with his dead father and sought investors in organized crime. Don't believe that this will make it to Broadway no matter who produces it.
I have found the theories to be brilliant although I did not fully understand all of the support material. Well worth the effort for someone who wants to think "outside the box".
I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did Tinseltown by the same author. I felt that there was too much attention to the Taylor Burton relationship. Also I got tired hearing about her jewelry. A bit less star worshiping would have been appreciated.
This book covers some history with which I was not very familiar. Although I could not see the footnotes, it seems to be very well researched. After listening to the book, I have been wondering how Hollywood has changed since its earlier days. I enjoyed the book enough that I plan to listen to the author's biography of Elizabeth Taylor.
