A great book and listen as if Hitch was in my living room telling me stories over a glass of wine or Scotch,

If you’re a fan of Hitchens, this is a must listen.

Like opening the curtains of the Wizard of Oz

A much needed and cathartic review of the history of Gord Downey and the Tragically Hip.

Read by the timeless voice of the Red Chair, Strombo himself.

Highly recommend this one if you’re a fan of the Hip, or Canadian music of the last 40 years.

Great explanation of what is going on

I suspect that I have ADD. I was never diagnosed as a child, but my mother told me that there had been discussions about if I might have it. She did not go for the test because of the stigma that diagnosis carried when I was in school.

Now 30+ years later to discover that all of my challenges in school while well documented, we’re not investigated is a bit of a disappointment to me because I could have at least been able to know what i was going through.

This book have a good explanation of the mechanics of what I recognized as a child and young adult, and also now as an adult. I’ll move forward from this and hunt for further resources to see if I can manage this condition that I have, be it ADD, or not.

If you ever tell yourself that you are stupid, and it’s an automatic reaction when things go wrong, check this book out. It may help...

Point 1. Rosario Dawson as the voice in my head for this story was perfect, the story flowed. I can listen to this book again, and again.


Point 2. Andy Weir, love the story, and the world building. I felt parts of "Caves of Steel" mixed with "Mission Impossible" I want to see more stories of the moon, as it grows, and what happens there. It's the wild west, but not west, and with no wildlife. Great story, looking forward to the next one.

Definitely not a One Hit Wonder, this one should be a movie too. #Audible1

Like Dennis E. Taylors previous Bob books, this one has an interesting use of time. Where I felt aware of the time between scenes where they took a long time and also the relative instant events that take pace throughout the book.

Ray Porter's delivery was captivating as always, voice and pacing were all great through the story.

Great Story, This book stands up well on it's own, but the universe feels like there is room for more, perhaps some time after this one, looking forward to more stories from Mr. Taylor.

I’m really enjoying these books, I have listened to all three books several months ago already. I enjoy Ray Porter’s delivery, and the story line is great to follow along. I enjoyed the first book no less on the second listen. I’ll continue through the other two still.

It will be strange to hear voices other than Will.

The characters were played great, and the story has a great flow to it. Very much looking forward to the movie in IMAX.

I love stories that span generations, so this story could have easily been called, "Hey you, listen here, enjoy.

I enjoyed the performance. There are some parts of the book, or theories shared that could be considered controversial without context, But they are important and worth sharing.
