Chet Williamson yet again reads Clive Barker magnificently. one of Clive's best story's. long but worth it.

Once you crack how to listen to this it's great

run this at .85 speed and you will love it. The reader reads too fast and I found myself rewinding and relistening to the beginning maybe four times.

I eventually realised that slowing it down would make it readable.

Great story. I preferred the first of the trilogy but this was a close second. I'll try the third soon, with the same narrator so I suspect I'll have to slow that one too

Patrick Rothfuss should read ever books.

Well narrated book loosely about time travel. More three diaries of someone's life - each told differently. Interesting on trend referencing to modern day things of now and soon to come and the dilemmas that we face in this future world.

How true

Would you listen to The Phoenix Project again? Why?

I plan on listening to this audiobook regularly to remind me how to turn a horror into a joy. This book probably sums up most IT companies and their bad practices and how to make them right - this book is a reminder of how to do things properly

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eric is the saviour of this book. He makes comparisons to non-IT departments and shows that a department is just a department - and IT is not sacred at all.

What about Chris Ruen’s performance did you like?

Chris Ruen's delivery was excellent. He wasn't just reading. He got into all the characters - it was super.

I loved this book.

For once I read the book first before watching the film. I learned my lesson with Gone Girl.

Very well read and a great story spoiled only by what I felt was a rushed ending with too much coincidence, leaps of faith and convenience.

Confusing story of lost memories and love

This book is very hard to read. You find yourself thinking 'have I missed a bit' then it sorts itself out. This makes reading the book very uncomfortable.

That said it all makes sense at the end. Although I wonder how many people give up before this point

Not sure I'd read any more by him. But it was worth a go.

If you want a taster of Murakami try these short stories. They will get you hooked. I've now read all his works. Who to read now?
