Most of the stories I managed to get through, which were about six, anyone could have written. They are poorly written and don't cover any new in apocalyptic fiction. The narration is poor and hard on ears. The narrator is actually annoying to listen to and I do not recommend this book to anyone interested in apocalyptic fiction.

The idea of learning about how the Panama Canal was built and maintained was very interesting to me. However, while David McCullough's books are usually not too long, this book got so boring after a while because he went into every single detail, many of which I thought were unnecessary, it took me a very long time to read this book. I started and stopped and started and stopped. There were just too many details that didn't enhance my education of how was created and why and by whom. I can't remember one, I'm sorry to say, because I'm reviewing this book months after reading it, but I do know that why it took me so long to finish. I've enjoyed every other David McCullough book unabridged except for this one. All that being said, if you want to know everything there is to know about the Panama Canal and more, read the book and you will know every single detail down to the minutest detail.
