Sometimes I read older SciFi and laugh at the ridiculous science found in them, but many are enjoyable none-the-less. I didn't find much in this book that strained the suspension of disbelief. The story was tight and everything fell into place pretty effortlessly. No overused phrases, no ridiculous dialogue, good plot, a couple of minor twists, and a clear reason for the adventure made this novel an easy listen.
I never read this clasic and was realy glad to have the chance of listening to it now.
It is flowing and enterataing. I felt that some ideas were anachroniatic, but rather then distracting, they added a certain charm to the story.
The Performance was excellent, in my opinion.
I generally only write reviews of books I don't like so as to remind myself if I see them again, and hopefully warn others...
Some interesting sci-fi concepts in a story that started off well but became monotonous by the end.
I would only recommend this if your love of sci-fi concepts outweighs your desire to be entertained.
Really good performance by the narrator Tom Parker. Good story, fast moving not slow or dull. Classic Niven and a classic sci-fi read. It feels like it ends too soon, the mark of a good read....
All the characters played well off of each other. Hard to have a favorite.... The most unusual was Teela Brown...... Very unusual girl!
I will look and see what else Tom Parker has read. He did a very good job.
The end is a bit abrupt, I guess I have to read the sequel to get some answers. I was going to do that anyway.
