Daniel Suarez is 3 for 3 with me. All of his books bring something different and refreshing. They’re hard to put down.

A bit too long.

I love Dawkins books, but I think an abridged version would get the job done.

My favorite books are space operas (Bobiverse, Red Rising, Expeditionary Force, Dune, etc...) so I figured a classic like this would keep me busy for some time. Not at all. I kept loosing interest, they're is simply too much unecesseray details. More than half of the time I just kept saying "get on with the story and stop telling me the room as 3 pictures and what they are, the color of the carpet, etc..."

I've not been lucky the past few months. Prior to the last 4 months I had only disliked 2 books. Now of my last 4, it's 3! All of them have a central theme that turns me off... Too much detail. I don't need to know what color are the rocks on the road, the leaves, etc... or which way the wind is blowing when it has no relevance to the story except it's just "there". Also, the audio. This is the first time I find a bad audio. There is way too much bass and not enough clarity.

Top 5 trilogy.
