A very enjoyable story throughout. Excellent detail. Human relationships progressed faster than believable and were bogged down in trivia given the circumstances. Thanks for this book!

Execrable.

Rarely have I been more disappointed with an audiobook. Chosen on the basis of its award-winning status I was hoping for some entertainment, insight, or drama. There was none. Any humour was buried under a drab emotionless performance. I despised all the characters for their lack of judgment, lack of effort in life, and inability to solve their own problems. Above all there was no hint of love in this book. Is this why no one smiles on Highway 401 in Toronto? Are city people this un-creative and self centered and sad? I can’t wait to cleanse my mental palette of this vile tripe served up cold and though fresh already mouldering like a gangrenous corpse. To add insult to injury they repeated hours of the book with audio effects to emphasize or mute words. If there was a point to it, sorry but I missed it.

Fantastic. Not balm for the soul though.

This reflection on the nature of mankind is an outstanding story read by a talented narrator. It won’t make you feel better about our current state but offers a fun scientific explanation for our ignorance and evil. Loved it.

Having listened to everything he ever podcasted, I can say I love Dan Carlin and he has really informed my understanding of how we got to where we are today. While we aren’t breaking a lot of new ground here the narrative is very entertaining. I was starting to notice a lack of differentiation of tone between imminent extinction and his lively reading of the credits. Thank you Dan for dramatically improving my life.

Loved the lessons

Mr Parrish was pleasant but has trouble with quite a few words, nuclear for example. Tragic.
Thank you sir for your work!

Books like this can inspire the young to solve the problems of the world. If we could only get them to listen to it.
Really well done, great analogies explain complicated processes.
Performance very well done.
Thank you

Mr Brown has learned through observation and trial and error how to rebuild soil and farm sustainably. The book is incredibly important and gives humanity a shot at redemption from our agricultural sins. Thank you Gabe for sharing this information.

Entertaining in an intelligent horror sort of way

Not for the faint of heart it makes us look behind with new understanding, at the present with embarrassment, and at the future with trepidation and hope.

Engaging, broadly insightful, and prescriptive.

A fantastic examination of what’s going on, what’s wrong, and how to try to fix things. Inspirational and gives not only hope but a path to success.
