Absolutely awesome popculture, scifi, convention culture and exellent customer service mash up. Truly a magnificent piece of art in humour. From the beginning you are aware that you will have no idea what's going to happen and that keeps the story fresh. Well worth and suitable for multiple listens.

Time really has moved on on this classic. The wooing around rich people is still current but the things that were shocking about social and queer dimensions don't raise an eyebrow today

Listen this to know the differece between the original and it's adaptations and of course the masterpiece narration. Hall's awesome sound is a pleasure to listen and all the characrers are easily identified.

Awesome if you'r looking for a light romantic and truly funny story in an original setting and well worth four stars. If american romantic or gender stereotypes bother you don't bother with this as the listen boils down to about two funny moments in an original setting.

I really liked the line of chosen interviews. The structure of presentation is well thought and the topics are current.

This is a compact collection of current leadership topics and an excellent place to get ideas about what to learn next.

The idea from which Junk is written is brilliant. Monotone and heavily accented american English reading makes it a hard one to follow. It's often confusing what character is speaking. Progression of the story is tedious and would have needed a good editor. Many of the characters are well rounded and serve the story. Problem is that there simply is too many of them.

This listen is a heart warming and exiting tale for children. Expertly read.

For adults it's in parts frustratingly idiotic when the story is obvious but the characters remain oblivious to it. Still the plot is full of excitement, surprises and twist.

In todays world death doesn't come as close as with a dying parent. Mala gives a few different examples of how to approach the subject emotionally and with what to expect.

Excellent reading and and a fantastic story which combines the life of a teenager with overcoming obstacles and seeing whats important in life and how capable you can be. It's marvelous how the exploration of a new planet and teenage life are written entwined.

Harari brings his excellent grasp of history and different viewpoints to action and serves the listener with a palate of possibilies an precursors for future events. Including humanism, the definition of religion and why our treatment of farm animals might tell about how genetically modified super humans or part machine transhumans might treat humans in the future. This book also includes insightfull telling of history from which to understand today's events.

I had to listen to this again after finishing it to really form an opinion about the possibilies.

This was definitely the best one in the series after the first. Reading was absolutely fantastic. Story is good and suprising. A refreshing one to listen. Illustrations about inventing new things was great and not forced like for example in the second and third books.
