Top 10: 1 Void Trilogy 2 Pandora Star 3 Fear the Skies 4 Armada 5 Magic 2.0 series 6 Ender's Game 7 Ready Player One
These are the most creative, thought-provoking books I've ever heard in my life, and they just keep getting better!
On occasion I would get lost in the plot but it's such a well told story it mattered not. A nice walk with the Waterwalker.
I'm more likely to listen to The Dreaming Void again, because that's where more new concepts are first presented
The subversion of fantasy elements to construct a Sci-Fi story.
A strong performance as always.
The Temporal Void inspired a few instances of shock or outrage.
My favorites series: Dresden files, outlander, agent Pendergast, My favorite individual books: the ascent of money, Great Gatsby, the forgoten garden, or anything by Neal Stephenson
Great continuation of the trilogy. I highly advise this trilogy but only after you read the beginning of the common wealth saga.
loved it. The sex in the book could become distracting from the plot and i often skipped sections not due to the quality ofthe description and power of the act but because it took away from the story around it. the abundance of character and collection of setting and ideas of future kind is amazing and provoking. with a powerful political retoric relevent to today and human history.
I focus mainly on History, Endurance Sports and Science/Speculative Fiction books.
Maybe. The production issues continue (not enough space between sub-chapters), but John Lee is great and in a book this length his performance keeps the various plots from becoming confusing. I don't understand why there isn't a 5 second space between sections however. It would have been so easy to do.
This middel book in the trilogy is devoted largely to Endeard, hence the title. This means that most of the book is not Sci Fi but Fantasy based. Weaving elements of fantasy into Sci Fi is not unheard of (Jack Chalker comes to find) but Hamilton does this a separate plot device which make the trilogy so interesting and this middle book a respite from cosmological concerns.
Nigel. His character is brilliant, hysterical and profane and Lee does him exceptionally well. Ozzie is not in this installment, who is my favorite in the series, but I am sure he is waiting in the wings.
Impossible. This is a lengthy book. This is not a book to rush through, rather I enjoyed it as part of my regular routine over a 2 week period.
Modern Sci Fi masterpiece. If you like Dune of The Foundation Series I think you will really like this combination of hard sic fi, space opera and fantasy. There are a lot of characters but all are well written and important to the story. Highly recommend.
