I'm happy to find this isn't another romance about dukes with perfect skin and teeth and women who are impossibly beautiful . though the fandom for Izzy seems cringy , I liked the emotional journey ransom and Izzy went though. the ending was slightly soppy but the writing is witty and enjoyable. I like the combination of realistic character portrayal as allowable in historic romances with witty writing and excellent narration by Carmen rose . this is a refreshing change from the stifling perfection of the usual historic romances . the quirky characters are likable and relatable .

the motion picture version of AI is different from the AI used in modern technology and the differences are explained , the origin and the possible destination of AI discussed . a basic intro class into AI for the uninitiated

as a doctor I could relate to the author . been through some of the same predicaments . it's true about how much it affects the mental well being of a doctor. if we need good doctors we need to know their side of the story and make sure an optimal situation where everyone is more or less equally benefitted ... funny to listen though ..

short and crisp presentation

though it sounds like a school teacher scolding me for my laziness , the memory techniques are quite useful . it seems too short though , a little more detail would have helped greatly .

with no or little exposure of Greek mythology , I started listening to this book , Stephen fry has made it simple to the extent it can be allowed and added his witty narration as a compliment . though I forgot the names of most of the gods , I can retain a few to boast my knowledge on the subject . fun to listen , definitely recommend to anyone interested on the topic .

the narrator breaks down science into English language , easy for the listener to understand complex events and history , enabling the visualisation of the dinosaurs described and making it an interesting story . definitely not complex of boring , would listen to more from this author and narrator .

a feel good book

though I felt I might drop it in the first half , the second half revelations hit close to home and I wanted to know more . in the end though , I'm really glad I didn't drop it .
