I read Monster Hunter and enjoyed it. This book spends way too much time describing gory werewolf kills at the expense of story line.
Much more colorful
No. Replaced plot with gore descriptions . Unless can develop more of a story lineE.
You know how sometimes reading a book changes your basic assumptions? This is one of those books for me. I readily admit that at times my mind wandered and I had to back up the recording. At time chapters were compelling and I couldn't stop listening.The premise of the book is that our brains operate on 2 systems, fast and slow. The fast being unconscious reactions and the slow thinking out problems. But what is different about this book is that the author describes multiple ways (halo effect, jumping to conclusions, priming and many more) that our brains use these 2 systems to make correct answers to complex problems, to mislead our decisions, to be manipulated, to respond quickly in threatening situations. I loved the research he quoted -- some his, some other people. It made the concepts understandable and were described in entertaining and interesting ways. This is not a self help book. Actual research backs up his ideas,not the 'I think', 'I saw', 'my friend said' reasoning. The author is the winner of the Nobel Prize, which to me validates his academic standing.
Though not always and easy book to listen to, I highly recommend it.
Very good narrator.
I hope not.
This is old fashion Stephen King horror. I've gotten used to his stories that are more sci-fi than horror. If you like horror books filled with very gruesome details, you'll love it. If gruesome details unsettle you, try a different Stephen King novel.
