As I listened to the book, I thought why is the style of narration.writing seems so different. There seemed to be missing pieces in action, which one had to deduce after listening to the following chapters. But as I neared the end of the book, I realised it was really a good one. And the author;s notes at the end clarified why the style was so different. I cannot resist listening to his next book in the series.

Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it. Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens? In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.

Every sentence in this book needs to be read and understood carefully. You cannot miss any. Forging briskly through evolution of homosapiens from Chimpanzees and their evolution, it quickly moves to cognitive evolution, agricultural revolution, scientific revolution, industrial revolution, money, nation and politics, imperialism, decolonisation, imerial globe, an exosition on hainess, genetic engineering, bionics, inorganic life and suerhumans ending with how animal turned into man and trying to turn into God. The narration is one of the best I have listened so far. Kudos and salutess to author, narrator and audible.

A story of a blind gifted girl, a brilliant boy caught unfortunately in the whirlwinds of a world war, an old genius willing to share his knowledge, a lonely, sad sister, from two different parts of Europe, brought togeher by the war and theire paths corss each others. A cursed diamond plays its part.. Is its curse real or is it just a myt. The mai story egins with the war and ends with it and in the end then how the various characters; lives pan out. The narration is one of the best I have listened. The book has been written in an eloquent and poetic sort of way with wonderful metaphors thrown around shart, short sentences. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
