Sorry I can't put up with the voice

I love Brandon Sanderson but whoever thought this voice was a good idea needs their head examined.

The whole book is read in the tone of a blockbuster movie announcer voice

Timeless story

Wonderful story and so well written. An easy listen with beautiful language. Timelessly relevant with deep meaning about the archetypal boy who never grows up.

Bit tired of skippy now

Honestly I could not finish this book. I loved the first book and enjoyed the second but by this stage I've heard the banter between Joe and skippy a thousand times and frankly I wonder how Craig can continue to write it. Yes we get that skippy considers himself superior to stupid monkeys... Is it possible for these two to interact in any other way? I'll never know.

Great summary and well researched

I really enjoyed this book which looked deep into the root causes of poverty and failure of nations to develop. Well researched and reasoned and its clear that corruption and extractive institutions destroy countries

Good message but not what I expected

I don't know if the book is the same but this is a recording of a conference. Great message but not a audio of a book

Some good insight but gets distracted

I enjoyed the first part of the book but a few chapters in the author goes off on a tangent with social commentary and option on various topics and I'm left thinking - what am I listening to?
There is some valuable insight about social awkwardness but I don't care for the rest

Good story. Characters need to change

I love the story but getting a bit tired of the same old interactions time and again. Yes we get that skippy thinks we're flea bitten monkeys. Time for some new dialogue I think
