Audible is the balm for an itch I can't scratch that sits right between my ears.
I love the mix of religious turmoil, technological innovation and political intrigue. I also love a epic and this certainly fits that mold.
I've not checked if this series pre or post dates the honor series but in either case I love the fact that there are so many nods to character and places in this universe.
This is the second time round for me with this book. First time I read it, this time I'm listening to it. I can only say that some things do get better the second time around, much better. How something that was already a perfect story can become so much better than perfect is of course in the telling. The narrator has caught the mood of the book series absolutely perfectly.
Too heavy with the religious nonsense for me, though since the premise is a global church I guess a more realistic atheist view from the main character was too much to hope for...
This book was really disappointing. Like the first book there is a lot of the author telling us what is going on instead of him showing us. Some parts come across as a boring history book being dictated to you. There is also an awful lot of conversations that are really long without saying much. Overall this book is full of fluff and no a whole lot story advancement. I like the Action writing, there just isn’t enough of it. I enjoyed the end of the first book even though I wasn’t a fan of it as a whole. So I gave this book a try and it’s the last in the series I will listen too. I like the story and the premise, the books are just not written well enough, and move way to slow. I probably won't be reading anymore David Webber either.
Awesome story. Great character development and depth of writing. Just wish that they spent the time to research how to pronounce the names correctly. Can't wait for the next book! Love this series.
There's a lot of needed setup information for the series in this book yet I still found it very rewarding. There may be few "battles" if you like that kind of thing, but there is a lot of relationship building--a marriage, relationship changes to support a new cause and a stronger empire. Intelligent group, with the invitation of the offer to join in on the logic and prep for the future. Skip it if you wish but you'll find yourself wishing for the continuity as you enjoy the rest of the series.
Removal of the 20 hours of wordy filler.
Told an actual story.
More excellent voice characterization.
Boredom. Really hard to keep paying attention to characters who like to hear themselves talk but say nothing.
I have enjoyed the storyline from the beginning. I especially like the authors attempt to balance the technology and stay one step a head.
I think this is one of the narrators better presentations.Much better that Kevin Collins.
No, it is much too detailed and in-depth for a single sitting.
