Author is a bit slow here in getting to the point. But just hold on and listen entirely before making any assumption.

This is 3rd book from Derek Perkins' narration for a Yuval Noah Harari's book. And that's fantastic.

Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

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.

Absolutely loved it and it was unstoppable from chapter 1. The pace at which the narrator reads is a bit faster for me. So I had Audible option to reduce the speed to 0.9 or 0.95 sometimes. I used to listen this while I'm walking, in commute, before sleep. This is my first audio book and I know that I have picked up the right one. Narrative is brilliant and the Narration by Derek Perkins is amazing.
