I expected another fluff sci fi novel but was pleasantly surprised. A book that has great characters and an interesting premise that pulls the reader in. Wonder if there will be a sequel?
I enjoyed the story but found it sometimes confusing wether Tyler was in the present or the past, especially in the beginning. I found the second half very engaging and found myself driving right past my destination as the story continued to develop.
Honestly, I wonder about reviewers that download Sci-Fi titles yet apparently are not interested in the genre.
I really enjoyed this book and found it to be very fast moving. In fact, I had a lot of driving to do and listened straight through in the course of a couple days.
If you pay attention to the story, the movement from one time period to the other is effortless and effective. It is not at all confusing.
I really enjoyed this title and will look for more from this author. As usual, Scott Brick was amazing. Mr. Brick is by far my favorite reader.
In my work I drive extensively and listening to books makes the miles and time speed by, but with 'SPIN' the miles drug on and on. The story line is weak at best and the characters make you wish they were on Mars. I like science fiction but the subject matter was so far out there that little made sense, and it took forever to get to the point and then there wasn't one. I tried to explain to my wife what this book was about but I had to admit even I didn't know.
Once again I have to disagree with many of the reviews. For me there is to much characterization in this book. Remember when you were looking forward to finally see a new science fiction movie only to find out it was 10% science fiction and 90% down to boring earth! The book is the same. For me there is to little science fiction and once again way to much relationship byproduct!
This book might appeal to teenagers who have little background knowledge in evolution hence have something to learn. Character development is poor and the plot spins out into the wild blue yonder ending up nowhere. I can't understand the high rating this book has received. I was totally hoodwinked!
Thanks to those of you who recommended books you consider more worthy of my dollars. I love it when folks recommend books they have enjoyed.
Loved the story and the narration. Even if sci-fi is not your thing, this book is worth a listen. I recommended it to a few friends who all typically hate the idea of sci-fi and the ones who decided to give it a try loved it. The concept that Wilson comes up with is so imaginative and at the same time eerily plausible.
I got this book because of the reviews and the narrator. Scott Brick still did a good job, but the writing was a little difficult at times to get passed. The concepts are good and science fiction ideas were interesting, I just did not enjoy the slow pace of the story.
