loved it. The Author credits the reader with some intelligence and doesn't try to jazz things up. The Narrator has a magnificent voice and his style of narration is beautifully natural and transparent.

Good Narrators voice but scrappy production. Biased and superficial. Nothing you havent heard for decades from MSM.

Deeply flawed Narration.

Killcullens work is very interesting and his perspective unique. Sadly this book has a different Narrator who has a terrrible "microphone voice" in that he has fallen into a habitual pitch pattern regardless of the text. It follows the same acending then decending pattern which renders it so annoying it becomes incomprehensible.

Mien Kampf is a book I had studied in my 20s and, since the hysteria following Trump's election with everyone getting called "Literally Hitler", I thought I would revisit it. I am glad I did. I didn't understand it as a 20 year old, however since I had read it I thought I had. As a work of Literature it is what it is. It is a glimpse into history. What really impressed me was the matter of fact narrative style Jack Wynters brings to it. It is perfect. The temptation to insert one's self into the performance was there. Jack didn't. It is a very professional read.

I got talked into reading this and am grateful I was. I was expecting a fairly amateurish and shallow story because Sagan isn't a professional writer and because the movie was so unremarkable. It is true that stylisticly Sagan is not stellar, but is far better than merely competent. No J G Ballard. On a deeper level his expositions on philosophy are high calibre. This isn't just hokey homespun maundering. Sagan sets up some juxtapositions on the boring old Science VS Religion saw, that are really original and thought provoking. He is playful and deep without taking sides in a tendentious manner. Some great little sparkling surprises pop out to delight and amuse. It is light and refreshing without being trivial. It truly is speculative Science Fiction worth of the name and your consideration.

A ghastly piece of poorly crafted Romance. The plot is so full of holes you give up following. The sex depictions are cringesome you wonder mildly whether the gender of the author is relevant before you abruptly don't care. I make it a rule to immediately jettison any work of fiction if the main protagonist is an aspiring or emerging writer. I didn't this time just to remind myself why. I remember now. The reason I began this is because I am a huge fan of the Narrator. Susanna Harker's performance of Sense and Sensibility is a masterpiece. I am no fan of Jane Austen but Susanna really got under the skin with it, brought it to life in a way that converted me to this genre. Sadly Ms Harker, despite a wonderful performance was unable to save this sorry piece of from corpseing.
