Several good stories inside and well performed but the whole point of the book eludes me. I couldn’t figure out how all the stories tied together Or where the author was leading to

Many hours of story, Many hours of wandering across the land, and many hours of descriptions of plants animals and the environment. Also many detailed descriptions of sexual encounters between the two main characters. I did not enjoy the book as much as previous ones in the series and regret buying it

The author tells an amazing story in the grandest details about the research in the creation of nuclear science and the development of the atomic bomb. Possibly the best narrator I have ever heard on audible. For those with a non-scientific background, the story might seem a bit tedious.

Any additional comments?

Great story. Excellent writing. Highly recommended. However, the narrator / author was difficult to listen too. Listen to the sample before you buy the book to decide if it is satisfactory for you.

Where does Total Recall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed this audiobook but couldn't understand the fascination/addiction over the constant references for cigar smoking. For a famous sports guru, this is the last thing I would prefered to hear about and it could have been left out without detracting from his stories in any way. Other than that, the narration is great as well as his stories about bodybuilding competition, movie making, and politics. It is refreshing how he takes full credit for screwing up his marriage.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Unimaginative and an obsession with cigar smoking that has nothing to do with the story line. Vivid descriptions of various brands of cigars along with the enjoyment of their smoke. At the same time, the story is predictable. Too bad, it had potential with the idea.

The reader is poor and has a long way to go. He may develop a good style one day but it won't be on my dime. The story is geared more for a young crowd. There is a journey to the center of the earth feel about it. I won't buy it's sequel book 2

I enjooyed alll 3 Sandman Slim audio books but they aren't for everyone. If you enjoyed the movie Goodfellows, you'll like these books. The language is rough and violence even rougher but the reader knows how to delliver the lines well. The stories are irreverent if you are the godly sort of person but those with an open mind will enjoy the imaginative context of the stories. And if you enjoyed the book 'Badass' you'll lovoe these three as well. I enjoy the Dresden series, as well, but Sandman Slim is in a class by himself and way beyond Dresden. Also consider the Iron Druid series. Same kind of story line - one main magical character against all the bad guys. Again, lots of fun unless you're a bible thumping church goer.
