Lucid and pure, a beautiful book

Where does Identity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In terms of content, top two or three, in terms of narration, top 10.


What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The combination of discursive and narrative elements. It was rigorous, like a mathematical proof, and yet lyrical, poetic, and entertaining (also funny!)


What about Clive Johnson’s performance did you like?

Very British, in a good way; clear, articulates the material well.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Deep and hard


Any additional comments?

The author should make some shorter books that are written just for audio. I got the feeling that this was originally written to be read. It flows well, and I liked it, but sometimes the internal references are bit confusing.
