What was the author thinking? I purchased this thinking it would be a good SiFi story, but after a short time I figured I had purchased a kids book in error, then came the sex orgy and away went that idea. I am having a hard time imaging what the target audience for this book is. The story reads like a child’s book but there are a few places that make it for ADULTS ONLY. Too bad, the author could have easily re-worked just a couple of areas and had a simple youth story, but as it stands I would have to say too childish for most adults and definitely NOT for children.
To make things worse, there is no conclusion; it would be nice to have some wrap up of the story. Well I guess the author thinks that we will purchase the next book – Wrong.
Enjoy something else – this is not worth your time.
Good, but I almost turned it off due to the foul language. Luckily the most verbally abusive is executed within an hour or so. To removed the swearing would not have detracted from the storyline at all. I did't get any more from this author, as this verbal assault was enough for me.
Say something about yourself!
This is a really interesting book with clever and engaging characters. The futuristic ideas about the potential of nanotechnology are are fascinating.
But the recording is waaaaaay toooo loooong. I had to finish it, but would have been much happier with an abridged version.
Its about the worse thing in the world to purchase an audio book you can't get through. I attempted to endure the pure hell this book put me through in hopes it would at least make sense. From story lines that had nothing to do with the plot, (I kept thinking I hit the button and skipped a chapter) to needless descriptions of people and places that you could care less about. Just when you find a character that is interesting they kill him. Please if you do anything skip this.
Great story but marred for me by the wrong pronunciation of the word 'primer'. It is used several hundred times in the story and every time was pronounced to rhyme with 'dimmer' when it should rhyme with 'timer'. Please make sure that narrators can at least say the important words correctly.
This is is as much hard SF, as erotica and religious epos. A masterpiece. It actually got me into a few days of something you might call a mental ilness. I thought about it. I dreamed about it. It has so many levels, only after third listening I really got the meaning of various oddities and became moderately sane, though altered, person. Believe me, every bit is there for a reason! I won't spoil you fun, but read Quicksilver by same author (Audible has it in stock) and you might enter the same state of altered conciousness, and in a perfectly legal way! This book has layers within layers within layers...Plus, it's a very good audiobook even if you ignore the contents. This man is dangerous!
This is the first audiobook that I found hard to finish. My mistake - shoud have read the reviews.
