It had the potential to be pretty good, but the author DRONED on about the drones and the grid and the evils of our world. Give it up. The idea of a traveler is cool and having the harliquens protecting them. But it was more about the VAST MACHINE and the evils of computers etc. It crowded out the story. Plus all the details about the deaths were not needed. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I got it because of the reviews, but I was sadly dissapointed!
Every page is big brother is watching oh no they know everything about you. The story was so so but the paranoid delusions of big brother out to get you was tiresome.
I really liked this audio book. Its something I never would have picked up to read but I bought it primarily because I thought my boyfriend would enjoy it on a long car ride. I ended up getting into it. Its tough to get into but I enjoyed it enough to buy the sequel as well. Its a action packed story, I listened to it at the gym and it definatly kept me engaged and alert. The characters are a lot of fun, very complex. I would recommend it, but be sure to sample it first. My boyfriend turned it off because he hated the narrator's style. It didn't bother me but I could see his point. Enjoy!
Even though it started off slow it picked up towards the midway point and kept my attention. You start to get into the characters and ou know there has to be a follow-up by the end point. Nice Read
I bought this book on impulse and by the time I finished my only thought was what is going to happen next! Luckily listening to the authors interview I found out there is to be two more books. Interweaving conspiracy theories with modern technology and mysticism keeps the story constantly moving.
I picked this one up because the early buzz on the book had been very strong. I did sample the reading but only briefly. In short, the plot moves quickly in the somewhat usual dystopian way but if your not a fan of 'the grid' the book works. This reading doesn't. The story calls for various accents - all done tragically bad. The tale does pull you through but buyer beware. The author should sue.
I couldn't put this one down, so to speak. Reality based fiction is a favorite of mine, but this book is especially exciting. It wouldn't surprise me if a screenplay is in the works.
Unfortuately, I have become captivated by the current best sellers involving secret societies and conspriracies. The Traveler is the same basic theme. I, however, found it much more realistic than the other books with similar themes, but then again, you can't compete with Jesus.
