Great story the narrator does an excellent job of making the tale come alive. I thought the movie was fantastic but as is usually the case the book was much better. It provided many more insights into Tom Ripley’s thoughts and motivations.

Very informative.

Good introduction to narcissism and it’s behaviours. I liked how the author pointed out that many narcissistic actions are very common but when these traits are all when combined in 1 person it’s a disorder.

Great listen, like some of the other history lectures it’s very information heavy and sometimes I wonder if all the details are needed to get a world view of this time and its people. I’ll have to listen to it again to soak up some more.

Very detailed account although as others have mentioned it kind of Peters out towards the end. I was familiar with the name of Ed Gein but not the story behind him. This is an informative albeit macabre account of s descent into madness. I found the childhood part of his story nearly as disturbing as what he did with the bodies.

I enjoyed listening to this, kept me entertained at work and is an interesting window into a world I never hope to occupy. I’m not from America so found some of the patriotism a little bit over the top but that’s to be expected and it’s understandable how many could feel this way after going through Nicks experiences.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and wish it had been issued as a school textbook. I was familiar with a lot of the info but had not connected it in such a seamless way. Incredible case study of the history of humans and presented in such a manner that was not dusty or boring. For some reason I also was able to retain a lot more of the info. Definitely recommend!!

This was a decent listen, nothing spectacular but did kept me entertained and interested throughout. I was hoping it would be similar to Fargo but I didn’t find it like the show at all.

I enjoyed this lecture a lot. Great historical outcomes that can be applied to modem situations big and small. Lots of lessons to be gleaned! I also enjoyed that the accounts were varied so it’s kind of like a book of short stories. Some of the other lectures (Egyptians, Etruscans) can be overwhelming with the amount of information and I can only listen to a few chapters at a time whereas this lecture is a one sitting event.
