A great window on a part of recent american history and a very human self-portrait of a fighting man read by his son
Kirk's Douglas unabashed fighting spirit
You can't but think that while he was reading his father's biography, he was moved by it and there was a lot of self-identification in his father, too. Touching.
Never give up!
a well reasoned and through analysis of the topic
It's just a repetitive series of slogans.
Preposterous, repetitive, useless.
Among the good one but not the best
When Michael Caine introduce his racist neighbor to his Indian wife!
Well, we are talking of Michael Caine! He can't perform badly. However, given his status, I was expecting something better. He is singularly bad at telling jokes! And he is obviously stage laughing afterward. Disappointing.
When he discovers that his mother kept hidden his half-brother for years.
Sci-fi at its best. An enthralling plot. The characters are complex and interact in complex patterns against a convincing yet not invasive cosmic background where the key questions about the meaning of life are continuously present.
Nevil Clavain and his internal moral struggle
The channeling of a star through a cosmic funnel to incinerate a whole planet
The problem with Sanderson's trilogy is that it goes on with no inspiration. You can't feel the need for things to happen in certain way. It is just a long and tiresome house of cards of stereotyped characters and complex magical rules
The reading was somewhat uninspired
Yes, John Lee add a lot to the experience of the reading. I got addicted to his reading style.
It's half way between Blade Runner (the dark atmosphere, the internal struggle among the prefects) and some Phil Dicks' novel (the three stigmata of Palmer Eldrich)
The final confrontation
Yes, Alastair Reynolds is always welcomed
the story was honestly written and not too pretentious in his goals. It delivered what it promised: a post zombie-world.
While the story was honestly written, it was definitely all too obvious. There was nothing original in it. The soldier on leave, the family, the middle-aged engineer, the nuclear silos ... all had been already seen several times.
Yes. Nice voice and good rhythm.
A series tv. Post zombie world.
One of the best. The best 5%
It is well written, deeply informative, urgent as a topic, pleasurable and complete
It's an essay, not a novel
Many examples are able to catch the gist of what is happening right now tot he world ecosystem.
It's one of the most compelling and sincere autobiography one may be listen to. Plus Wilder has a charming voice that would make anything just as good.
When he understands why he has chose his artistic name.
When Wilder tries to help a little boy
Love ever wins
The audiobook make me both laugh and cry and think
A totally unbelievable plot hopping from one place of the earth to the next. Emotional profile of characters is very poor.
Less action more structure
The Chinese factory. There is a character, a chinese model that pops out all of a sudden, saves the day (because unless she does, the plot was going to get to an abrupt end, the true deus ex machina) and then she is killed. Preposterous.
The story is packed with cliché: the nice model, the indonesian poor childre, the desert island, the escape on a plane, the nazi cospiration. I know, this is what one is looking for, but please, make an effort to add some variation from the standard ...
