For Sci-Fi fans, this is a good one to have in your collection. It examines an interesting problem in interstellar warfare that no other book (or movie or TV show) has attempted to tackle: relativity.
It's been a few months since I listened to this one, and I don't recall anything especially memorable about the characters, but this isn't about who the people are as much as it's about the cultural impact upon the characters of "moving through time". There's a lot of orginal and thought-provoking ideas here, and overall it's worth the time and credit.
I enjoyed the book, it wasn't as captivating as I would have liked but it was still a great read. Not disappointed at all, would recommend if you enjoyed Starship Troopers but with time travel... or relative to time travel.
Great story that will likely be relevant to readers as long as there are people around. I found myself caught up on the story, feeling the emotions of the main character. Very well written.
The narration was likable enough, but the plot was seriously lacking. A long stream of a character I didn't give a darn about narrating about a series of battles that you don't care if he dies in.
Tell me about hard sci fi books!
Yes! I think it is a great work of sci-fi, with a powerful undertone of war.
Mandella - he is the protagonist
His performance didn't blow me away, but I didn't have any problems with it.
Yes, I couldn't stop after the first chapter.
Story was 4.2/5 for most part, but I probably would have cried like a bitch at the end, were it not for the fact I was too busy trying not to cry like s bitch. Narrator sounds funny when he impersonates professional type people, but brought the protagonist alive quite well. And story is worth a full read through. The concept is amazing. And when you think about it. The hero is one unique dude.
