If they were looking for a light listen/read on vacation, I would recommend it. Getting the first book would only marginally help in understanding this one.
Blocky: sounds like there is a period after most words. It sounds as if he is trying to hard to sound victorian.
Probably better as a movie than a book.
Not my cup of tea. I might possibly get the third in the series but this one is not making me feel it.
It's ok. Many of the stories are quite engrossing and/or leave me wanting to hear more of a story (this is a series of short stories so some feel cut short)
The characters did not have the most amazing performance. The readers were just ok but the many of the stories were great.
This is a great set of short stories. While the stories are relatively benign I would screen it if you intend to have a child listen to it (some of it may be too scary or have things younger children should not hear)
This book was entertaining to hear, not sure it would have been the same to read. I would say that it is an easy listen and did become compelling about half way through (before that it was just "ok"). It had a lot of things in it that appeared extraneous or like the author was trying too hard to fit as many fantasy concepts in as he could.
Yes, with caution, there are very disturbing images and it is loaded with obscenities as it is almost in an interview style. But the information in this book should be known by anyone who votes in the US
The Corruption of the CIA and How the US Aided its Enemies
This was made into a movie I have not seen. I cannot imagine how the movie managed to capture the vast amount of information contained in the book.
There were several mini stories but only one of them was interesting, unfortunately none of them really had much of a story line and they all seemed to be incomplete or vastly underdeveloped.
boredom and annoyance at times. I stuck with it because of the multiple stories and the short duration of each but my patience was not rewarded
Fully fascinating facts.
While the author did have a clear agenda at times (despite his multiple warnings to be objective) the book provided a very interesting case study of 13 items science is currently unable to explain or that there is debate regarding. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to know what is going on or enjoys learning in general
Very much so. The reader did an outstanding job and the author captures humanity's worst and best in such an amazing and facinating manor.
The complexity and depth of the book is fantastic.
First time listening to John Lee. I hope that all his other readings are as good.
A must listen/read for people who like books.
The narration is blocky and sounds as if it is if there is a period after most words. While the diversity in voices by the narrator are good, the voices themselves are anoying. The plot is ok but the actual writing is fairly cliche.
Fine- despite the criticism I have for the book, the ending made me want to know what the next book would hold.
(see what I would change about the book)
It would make a much better movie (if done well) than book.
Fairly good rendition
Nothing compares to scripture but other suggestions for further study are, "Mere Christianity" by Lewis The Heidelberg Catechism and"Jesus Through Middle Eastern Eyes" by Bailey.
No, It is about 5 gigs of audio (more than a day's worth)
Slight catch on this audio Bible: The chapters and sections are not labled well in the audio and the track breaks are several books long. This makes it difficult to tell exactly where you are if you are trying to read along or look up what you just heard. I Do enjoy the narration and the acting that wend into the story telling and found it enriching but also a little confusing at times when it was difficult to tell who a voice was supposed to be when the narration did not specifically say. I might try a different audio Bible at some point to see if it is easier to follow. I think that children will find it especially engrossing as it incorporates entertainment value. I demoted it a start just because of my difficulty in following it the way the tracks were broken up and a personal preference item (some of it seems a little over-acted) otherwise it appears fairly solid.
