Quick and easy listen. Narration was excellent. Story started out well and conceptually is great, 100% plot driven but really loses it as the story progresses. Good enough to finish but lacks depth and could have fleshed things out more.

Absolutely awesome

Exactly what I was looking for. an extraordinarily balanced discussion of different energy types and generations. The lecturer has excellent narration and is clearly spoken. The course was interesting and engaging the whole time. my biggest criticism is that it was made in 2016 and this field is moving very fast so some things discussed are already feeling dated. An updated or new lecture series would be highly appreciated!

Great listen

Highly enjoyable, engaging and easy listening. Brusatte does a great job bringing the many characters both extinct and present to life. narration was good and never impeded the story. I liked how the auther brought himself into the story talking about his mentors, colleagues and expeditions he went on giving it a more personal flavour. Strongly recommend.

This being the 4th Cormoran Strike book I've listened to its easy to pick this one as my favourite, by far the most interesting from early on and in my opinion an order of magnitude better tban those before Rowling is really mastering this style / genre. As always narrator is fantastic and adds a lot to the story and enjoyment. Highly recommended.

My favourite Follet work

Having almost finished the KingsBridge trilogy It is more obvious how much I prefer Pillars over its later installments. Prior Phillip remains one of my favourite literary characters. Overall Pillars feels much more original and suffers less from many of the negatives I started to notice about the authors later works. I would highly highly recommend Pillars it keeps a great pace throughout and is never boring which is quite some achievement considering its length. Narration by John Lee is absolutely superb

Great book but not Pinker's best work

Morey does another fantastic job with narration.
Whilst I highly enjoyed this book, I didn't really find anything especially new or groundbreaking. It felt like an enjoyable retelling of much of what I already knew in a novel way. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but I guess I wanted a little more from it with the high anticipation I had after reading my favourite book written by Pinker 'The Better Angels of our Nature'. If you enjoy Enlightenment Now I would highly recommend Matt Ridley's 'The Rational Optimist' and Pinker's Better Angels, both of which are similar but in my opinion much better.

Great story, let down by the quality of writing. Will Wheaton does a fantastic job as narrator. Took a bit to get into but was highly entertaining and enjoyable even though theres many cliches and an overuse of similes

one of the few books lately that has grabbed and held my attention since I started till I finished. really a lot less like the movie than I was expecting which was welcomed and refreshing. The depth of writing was also far greater than I was expecting. it actually felt like the perfect candidate for a late high school or university literary essay. Narration by Alfie Allen was superb and he nails all the accents except that of Jesses but I still give him credit for trying.
