I’ve read (or listened to) this book twice now, and I expect to return to it every so often. It is full of useful techniques and real world examples of what habits are and why we do what we do (at least, some of the time). Highly recommend to anyone trying to improve his/her habits.
This is a great beach/airplane book, though it’s pretty dark, which is why I enjoyed it. It wasn’t full of complicated characters, but the plot twisted in interesting directions, which kept me entertained. I definitely went through hating and loving Nick and Amy, and I though Flynn did a good job of making the characters real enough and exploring a lot of the relationships (parents especially). The ending fell kind of flat though…like there was all this interesting stuff happening, and then Nick just folds…WTF?
I really enjoyed Hitchiker’s Guide, so I finally picked this one up on Audible. I really enjoyed it, both the narration and the story. The writing is a bit funny sometimes — not funny “ha ha” but funny “man, where is he going with this” funny — and I found myself caught up in the endless conversation. There are many digs at modern culture and how it might’ve played out, and it’s aged well (it’s 26yrs old at the time of this review). Highly recommend, but some might not enjoy the writing style as much as I do.
