This was the best SF book I've read so far, wildly imaginative and delicately treading the boundaries of science and fiction.
Beyond the SF aspects, it got me curious about the Chinese cultural revolution, communist societies and basic human nature in general.
Deducting the one star because the characters did feel a bit flat, perhaps because of a shoddy translation.

Must Listen!

Some of the best works of Agatha Christie packed in one audiobook. Will keep you entertained for hours.

Once you start listening to it, you find it hard to stop because the prose just flows from page to page beautifully.

Amazing concept, execution could have been better

This is a book about regrets, and how they blind us from seeing the potential we still hold for the future. It started out as an amazing book, but as the chapters went on the plot became extremely predictable and the lessons came too freely. Also there's something about the way the dialogues are written that feels artificial and weird.

This left me confused..

I can't decide if I liked the book or just confused by it. I found my mind wandering off several times throughout the book, however I kept listening to it as I was extremely curious about how this was going to end. One thing I was not confused by however, is that this book is an absolute satirical masterpiece.

Little pretentious..

The book was narrated beautifully, and it was lovely to listen to. All that being said, it felt like a bunch of faux wisdom pretending to be deep. Little confused by all the love it's been getting.

Decent narration but the selection of stories could have been better. For a book that's called Days that changed the 'world' most of the stories revolve around the US and the western world.

I usually find self-help kind of books preachy and boring, this book is filled with tonne of real world stories and examples that I could directly relate to and apply. Its is a simple, practical guide for anyone who wants to improve themselves, one small change at a time. Would recommend listening to the audiobook over reading it.

Worthy narration for a timeless classic

I read the book a couple of years back, and fell in love with the storyline and the characters instantly. Decided to revisit it in an audiobook format, and must say I'm not dissapointed! Sissy's southern accent was a bit of a challenge for my Indian ear initially, however after a couple chapters I got accustomed to it and started enjoying it. Her narration brought life to the characters, and completely justified the setting and the era.
