Any additional comments?

The 'Timothy' series as a whole is fantastic. I have never enjoyed blood, gore and humor as much as with this series. But, therein lies the problem. The repetition of Timothy eating people became somewhat boring in this book. The eating didn't get boring because of bad writing, it became boring because...it was just more eating. This book kind of reminds me of a James Bond film. The bad guy captures Bond and instead of just putting a bullet in his head he decides to use a 'Particle Death Beam' to do the job. And, we all know that James was given the 'Antiparticle Death Beam' shoe laces by Q and he will escape yet again.

The writer does an EXCEPTIONAL job of explaining the politics and mindset of many Americans that unfortunately has resulted in the divided nation that we find ourselves in today.

I have listened to this story four times...FOUR TIMES! That's how good it is. George Guidall is at his best (as usual). A most fascinating point of this story is how Neil Gaiman presents diverse mythologies along with their cultural backgrounds.

Wow!!!

Robin Cook nailed this one! I work in Health Care and the idea of an app that controls a patients care is not outrageous.

If one thinks of the just how much technology is used in health care and the outrageous cost of care in this country coupled with the use of social media for communication it doesn't take a lot of imagination to see where things COULD go.

I found merit in both the arguments of the insurance company and the protagonist.

An EXCELLENT book and George Guidall is icing on the cake.

I listened to this book based on a review that rated it as 'Almost Excellen't. Well from my perspective it was a three star.

The story starts out really well but there were some aspects of the story that I wish the writer had spent more time developing - these aspects leaned more towards the scifi/fantasy bend of the story. I listened to the entire audio hoping that this would happen but it didn't.

This book was very hard for me to rate. It held my attention for 40 hours but there are so many unanswered question.

Wow!!

I would probably be classified as a liberal (what's up with these labels anyway). I really wanted to understand the mindset of an African American 'Ultraconservative' being African American myself and somewhat successful. Well, I have come to the conclusion that the end result is determined by the journey - and what a journey it was for Justice Thomas. He has a place reserved on my study wall right next to Truman, Obama, Einstein and yes Malcolm x.

14 will definitely keep you interested. I have found a new writer and narrator too search for and if their other works are as good as this, I'm in for a treat.

The roots of the hyperpartisanism were clearly explained - at least this authors hypothesis. What was really interesting are the games that politicians play to get what THEY want and there are times that what they want is not in alignment with what is best for their constituents.

I was of the belief that the present lack of bipartisan cooperation was due to Obama being an African American (and I do believe that plays a big part especially in the minds of some very vocal voters) but I have come to realize that there are bigger issues at play.

The narrator is PHENOMENAL. The story is not typical King but it's pretty good. There were parts that seemed to drag-on but I didn't stop listening. The listening experience was strange in that way. Some books are so good that I would listen to them again if given the opportunity but this is not one of those.

The story is excellent. There are several characters that are well developed and transitions from one subplot to another is extremely clear. The story is told from the point of view of several people and each tale is extremely captivating. David Ball is an excellent writer and George Guidall...... well, you can't go wrong listening to ANYTHING that he reads.
