Good, with a caveat

This is from the perspective of someone mostly embedded in corporate culture and wants to convinced others of the benefits of inclusion with data. If you’re not in that culture it’s still beneficial because the data is good, but if you already are on board with inclusion and want personal tools, not corporate ones that small business and communities don’t have funding for, it’s less likely to be helpful.

Amazing!

It’s heavy stuff but incredibly well written and prescient as hell. Climate change, a post-collapse America turning to alt-right and Christian values again resurge in an effort to literally “make America great again”. It’s scary how on point this is for being written in ‘98, and is a fantastic piece of writing. Especially with the full context of the previous book. The narrators are also great!

Amazing!

Love the play and this latest adaptation is fantastic. The entire cast does a great job and the play is still poignant and prescient.

Amazing. The added context does make it better than the movie, which is also quite good. But this is a much more intimate experience and the tension feels much higher.The audible narrator was very good as well, one of the best I’ve heard.

Well done, strangely less ludicrous than the blurb

The blurb really makes it seem like this would be weird and strange, probably gonzo. But I must admit it was an interesting way to insert multiple perspectives into a discussion around creationism and evolution. Literalization alien viewpoints is mostly pulled off. There’s an attempt at a sub plot because it’s mostly dialogue that is fine? Probably didn’t need it since it begins halfway in. But I enjoyed the book regardless.

Should be required reading

It is striking that—aside from Baldwin talking about meeting Malcolm X and things that insinuate a specific time and place in the past—it might have been written today, so little has changed. Published in ‘62 yet still with a bluntness and conciseness explains exactly the numerous problems that outline things that have not even remotely been addressed as a culture. Especially western views of masculinity, land ownership, and a staunch refusal to even view reality as it is when systemic issues are concerned.

It was fun but contrived

Performance was not bad. It was a fun scenario but felt pretty contrived. The dialogue is stilted but the action seemed like the strongest part of the writing.

Pleasantly surprised

It starts off like it’ll be kind of stock fantasy, a child gets sent to an order for training to become a warrior of a faith. It gradually becomes more interesting and throws curve balls often enough that it keeps you guessing. Ended up being great and satisfying.

The narrator was pretty good but not as good as other productions. Decent at inflection and not being monotone but at times it’s hard to tell the characters apart when he doesn’t give them different accents.

Unnerving and raw

The flow and manic nature of the prose really come to life when read by the author. It’s not an easy listen but well worth it.

Greek tragedy in middle earth!

This is a much darker tale than the other books but I enjoyed it a lot. Christopher lee is a fantastic narrator too. Killed the performance.
