I didn't mind the flashbacks, but too much time and effort went into hashing over the same information; in short beating a dead horse. He dosen't mind mind killing folks off in wholesale lots, but with very little purpose. Much gore meant to shock. Not something I would recommend or wish for more of.
The story is good. The characters are well explained. However when he describes how to do some menial task he goes into such detail, it's as though he is writing directions to the task at hand. He does this in almost all of the small tasks as though it will increase the time of the book. It only increases frustration. Other areas where more detail begs for description and is not mentioned.
I've not read any of Carrington's books, but I'll be looking for them now. I would recommend this to everyone. The obvious is pointed out if only folks would follow the lead to advance the civility in our society. Manners goes far beyond the dinner table. I thought of this as I went through the market today and listened to a fool on his cell phone telling the world how upset he was.
This is a homosexual's view of Japan. He makes no explanation nor expects any recriminations. He is simply teaching English to non-English speakers and learning Nipponese while doing so. I thought perhaps this might be humorous, but it wasn't.
I anticipated a entertaining romp through Africa regaled with funny stories of peoples foolish antics while trying to capture wildlife in nature. What I got was a dull story of Botswana Safari Guide being foolish and not even being entertaining in the bargain. Since he has given up guiding, sure hope he's not planning on a writing career.
If you want more of the diet of left wing "I can run your life better than you", this is it. You don't get this message until you are well into it. It's too bad such options didn't die with him.
for the most part it's Al Gore on his way to the bank.
It's not what I'd call a compelling work; I doubt that you'll want to listen again and when you're through you will understand futillity. I found myself wondering what type of society could create such entertainment and wonder if we are indeeed headed in that direction. This book will make you think and wonder.
Like most liberals; King believes the world will just naturally fall in line and be good little boys and girls and the rest of us should trust them and our Government with our lives. He dosen't believe the greatest danger is from our own Government. He believes we don't need and 30 round magazines to shoot deer or home invaders and he's right. deer rarely shoot back and criminals who invade our homes usually come and go rather quickly. The gentlemen who penned the second ammendment saw a real danger from the old addage
" Power corrupts" and the Obama administration is one of the best examples since Bill Clinton or Richard Nixon. The Government already has planes, tanks, ships and bombs. Don't take what little defense we have, Mr. King......
The language, the subject and the presentation all combined to create a flusher! none of the characters were the slight bit endearing or even entertaining.
A entertaining, insightful and funny guide for all men from cradel to grave and useful information from the woman's point of view... A must read.
