Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Albert | 2/22/2013

    " A very good and very readable history the Plantagenet dynasty. I highly recommend it for those who don't have much of a background though I think someone who does would still enjoy it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor Kniphfer | 7/4/2012

    " An incredible narrative history of the Plantagenet kings and the England that they ruled over. A book well worth reading and rereading over and over again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gevera Bert | 9/8/2011

    " It is no wonder that so many novels are written about these people. Their lives, even in the most basic details, already read like fiction. Fascinating period in history. The writing is a little dry but it's worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 5/22/2011

    " Nice tinkering with questions of what is reality and what do we satisfy ourselves with. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam | 3/10/2011

    " I had to fight to finish this one. Blech. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/31/2011

    " Not his best book, but Julian Barnes's musings on reality vs art are still extremely interesting and worth reading more than once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyle | 1/14/2011

    " There were parts of this book that were brilliant. The whole concept was hilarious, but I guess I missed the point of the first chapter and the ending. If those parts were better this woud be a four possibly five star book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellen | 12/31/2010

    " Started off interesting, but fell apart at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stan | 11/3/2010

    " Satire about business and an England theme park. Starts well, but finishes weakly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 10/23/2010

    " A good read, well written (as you would expect from JB), but satire completely overdone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark | 9/11/2010

    " Fun, 1 part ruthless satire, 1 part cautionary tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 6/11/2010

    " I kept thinking as I read, 'wow, this guy is really smart.' I don't know if that's what he was going for, but I'm sure he doesn't mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 thom | 4/3/2010

    " Another great book by Barnes, which clearly owes a lot to Baudrillard's Simulacra and Simulation. That said, it doesn't get bogged down in the philosophy and is an entertaining read. "
