  • Directional clarity

    By Porshca
    I am enjoying the opening up of the direction that appears to be opening clarity of where I am going. It is very spot on and I am feeling comfortable and not being distracted as usually happens. I am really liking the way the Blinkist sets up a space to move forward!

  • Not for the way I read

    By k-means
    I read a Blinkist edition (of Becoming by Michelle Obama) twice, then I tried to have a conversation about the book with someone who had read the book. Not only did I say foolish things in the conversation—an event that was a turning point in the blink was a minor point for the person who’d read the book, and the event that the book-reader said actually mattered was unmentioned in the summary—but I also missed a huge number of major plot points and found an exceptional personal memoir reduced to something less interesting than a Wikipedia bio. I did the one-week free trial of unlimited and listened/read a bunch of other books, including some books I’ve read, and the rereads didn’t remind me of anything I’d read in the books, and the other books didn’t pique my interest or even give me an impression about what I might get out of the books if I read them myself. I found complex political thought reduced to a basic list of facts, simplistic narratives, and nothing to prompt introspection or applying the topic to my own life. The one summary that seemed halfway decent was The Four Agreements, which was more or less a briefer summary of a book that I assume started out as a list of for takeaways anyway. Other than that single genre of self-help/self-improvement books—I.e. things that could have been article-length listicles anyway—I didn’t find the summaries effective for any of the kinds of reading I would want to do in an app like this. In many ways I fear the summaries are worse than not reading the book at all, because they might give the opposite idea about the subject itself.

    This is not a free app. They don’t tell you it’s $119.95 a year until after they ask you to sign in. Sorry, do not cater to that deception.
