Perhaps people who didn't know most of the story ahead of time.
I doubt that most of my friends would enjoy the presumptuous writing style.
Pedestrian, Acceptable, Monotonous.
The book is too much about the author, Walter Kern, and not enough about the imposter Clark Rockefeller,
The narrative jumps around too much. Unfortunately I had heard an interview about the book on NPR. The interview was well done, but the book didn't live up to my expectations.
Zombies and The Walking Dead aren't of much interest to me, but Stephen King's superior descriptive vocabulary made the book a great listen. The more I listen to King's books, the more impressed I have become. He is an excellent story teller and this book is no exception to that standard.
I have liked the books by Greg Iles for some time and this book was no disappointment. The twists and turns keep the story riveting. I strongly recommend a listen.
Some interesting facts, but most of less consequence than the book claims. Not worth the time. Can hardly call it a story, more a collection of vaguely interesting facts.
The book is well researched, but poorly organized, with too much detail. I had trouble getting through it. Would have no interest in a second listen. Narrator does an adequate job.
A good summary of the attempt to reconcile the Quantum and Gravety theories. A bit deep for the non-scientist. Still, worth a listen to get a good overview. Real versus imaginary time a little confusing.
I strongly disagree with some of the rave reviews of this book. This is more of a psychological analysis of an Italian lawyer than it is about a murder case.
A good account oh Nell Harper Lee and her older sister, Alice. Doesn't concentrate on the book as much asI had expected. Provides a good look at a small Southern town and the social arrangements that exist there.
i remember this incident when it happened. It certainly gave a "black-eye" to Queens. The book is well researched but poorly organized. There is too much repetition of facts. Better organization and presentation of those facts would have been appreciated.
This book is a classic. One of the great American novels. It resonates each time I explore it. Have lost track of the number or reads. This is my first listen and I wasn't disappointed. One of the few books that I will likely have multiple listens. Nuff said!!!!
I enjoyed the book, but believe that I might have been able to follow it better in written rather than audio format. I found the book to be well reasoned and well researched. I benefitted from having some understanding of Constitutional Law. Perhaps I am prejudiced since I usually agreed with Judge Stevens when he was on the bench.
