These are long books, with a lot of detail and numerous characters. Yet they do not feel like they contain extraneous information and move forward very quickly
One word. Fantastic. Different voices, dramatic delivery, just terrific
Can't wait for the next two books in series

In general I liked the book although the different plot lines were difficult to follow. I felt like I should be taking notes as I listened. The last third of the story the pieces do come together.
My goal on life is to learn everything.
Great storylines and I will keep listening to the books in the series. Hard to follow listening.
The author does not do a good job of setting the overall stage or developing the characters.
Definitely not. He attempted to make every sentence sound ethereal. I couldn't take it for more than 2 hours.
Not sure by name, but Peter was not good.
Can't say I am surprised this book was good. Hamilton weaves a tale that thrills and grasps your heart fully. Sure all his book require a little dedication, it is always worth it.
I don't like so much description.
Many of the characters are not good people and I don't like them. The rest is pretty damn fun.
The task of coming up with so many voices is daunting but achieved splendidly.
I listen to these while doing other things and it's tough to keep these " war and peace" sized chunks straight. The way to think of it is as 5 novels in one. I sometimes wish I could listen to each novel separately in series rather than parallel.
As a subscriber, 1credit for this has to be the best bargain around. On to book 2.
Narrator is good, story jumps to unbelievable tangents. Just gets you interested then goes off to who knows what.
The first five minutes then after two hours I didn't know what was going on.
Probably the second worst book I tried. Will be returning!
good grief, it sucks you in and won't let go! amazing plotline, heads and shoulders better than anything Hollywood can come up with! go to bed dreaming about the story and wake up to hear some more. I am going to have a withdrawal
Dang. He doesn't just focus on one technology. This is a rich imagining of all the evolutionary advances I pray humanity makes. This universe contains a complete spectrum of technologies, histories, xenobiologies, and societies. A visionary painting of our future.
John Lee's versatile voicing pulled me in and made it easy to follow each character in the rich tapestry.
