Loved hearing everything about Elon, his ideas are beyond our time. Downside for this book can be the pacing of going back and forth to things weve already passed and spoken about, spending too much time on certain details such as shares.

There is no other way that i know of, to get to know the real Elon Musk except this and it was awesome.

Not a huge fan of the Audio however as he can come across a bit robotic.

Any Film or History Fan Needs This MASTERPIECE!!

What a wonderful, exhilarating and heartbreaking tale of Warner Bros and James Cagney. The golden age of Hollywood I grew up thinking i'd never care about or pay much attention to because it was Black and White and I was born in 82. I'm so glad it took me back and showed me how great and how scary it was. so proud to have learned what a great man Cagney really was and now I'd love to see all his films.

What a wonderful bunch of Brothers (par 1 Jack Warner) the Warner Bros were and how much they fought their way to show us what a Film is and all from a Pocket Watch ;)

The Narrator Adam Roch bought this to life. He was amazing and I laughed and cried hard many times.

Thankyou.

I want to see more of these two sisters working a case together. What a smart and witty quick book.

Loved it, barely slowed down a wonderfully paced novel and 2 brilliant mysteries wrapped into one!

my only squabble if I had to mention one, the quick step from past to present memories had me off guard when they happened in the audio book. Took me some time to realise where i was when they were happening.

Can't wait for the upcoming film!

Such a wonderfully bright and witty series!

Kept me smiling all the hours of my long driving, kept me sane too. A brilliant performance by Miranda and all the cast. The Chemistry between Miranda and her housemate was brilliant. can't wait for season 2 and 3 and 4 and more?

20+ years I've avoided but Alas!

avoiding this ridiculously long book for 20+years and I'm glad I did as the Audio book was Brilliant. well acted and I wouldn't have been able to keep up and read it all myself without losing interest with my short attention span on reading.

So what's next?

Intriguing, But Ever so slow.

I fekt quite deceived going into this as I thought it would be about magic and witchcraft style storytelling and while it definitely has a magical hold over you most of the time and the universe in which books are memories of others is deeply intriguing, I wasn't prepared for the latter half to be a romance novel, well, a love story and while I don't mind them, I just wasn't ready for that.

Other than being sent sideways I quite enjoyed it as an audio book on my long travels. However, a tad too slow and overdrawn in a few parts, there is only a certain amount of painting a slow description of sweat on a forehead I can take when being received at such a slow pace, I just wanted to get back to the characters talking, interacting or hearing more a out the Binding world.

Overly long and a lot of exposition and commendation on things that seem to wind away from the path the book leads us in. I don't need to know the backstory of the cigarette company in which a character is smoking. But when it's on the main plot it thickens with more-ish at every turn. I want to read more and why has it been over 10 years? Is Gaiman coming back with these characters?

Wonderful Old School Tale!

I wasn't so sure of the upper class old English to begin with, but it very fast grew on me and once the children arrive in the story, especially Moppett, it becomes an instant classic! A Quick must read.

Wonderful end to the six sacred stones.

Despite getting way too heavy on certain historical factors for me (I just could not keep up), the fast paced action kept me wide awake on the long work drives. Now for the next one.
