My only real gripe... The sound level is very low for some odd reason I had to bump my headset to maximum to really hear all of it.

Story was interesting
And it was nice to see events forming

The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, best-selling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales.

The New York Times best seller. Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flipside. Criminals are often the earliest and most innovative adopters of technology, and modern times have led to modern crimes. Today's criminals are stealing identities, draining online bank accounts, and wiping out computer servers.

Remember when you were a kid, and you used to go round to a friend's house to see if they were playing? Well, as adults we're not supposed to do that. Which is a shame... because Dave Gorman likes playing. He REALLY likes games. So he knocked on the biggest door you could ever imagine - the internet - and asked 76,000 people if they fancied a game. This is the story of what happened next.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dave Gorman Vs The Rest of the World to be better than the print version?

Not had the book version so cant relly awnser this, i listen while driveing so Audio works better for me

What about Dave Gorman’s performance did you like?

he gave a very Human acount of how he felt at the time he was playing and how exited he was while he was doing it.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

i did have a giggle at some and the ending i found to be rather sad, not crying sad just disapointing that someone would do that. overall its a good book

Any additional comments?

if you want to know the name's of some strange games its a good one to listen to,
