Continues the story from part 2. Waiting for the Compies to start their reign of terror and for the king to realize his worst nightmares were validated.
Yes, but I would ask them to let me know if I have imagined the duplication of the story.
Narrator performed this work in his normal excellent style. All major characters are identified by his interpretation.
I wouldn't make a movie from it. too much to tell from the start of the series.
Story went as expected for the 1st part. The second part appeared to be a copy of the first part from about 15 minutes in to the end of the part. The 3rd part picked up where the 1st part ended. Kind of disappointing.
Learn, understand, then decide whether you accept or reject.
Don't expect any closure in this book, as things become brutal to our heroes, and threats accumulate on all sides. I'm excited to continue the series and see what happens next.
Tell us about yourself!
This is a great series, This is a long series, this is a very complex and deep series of books. I made some back handed compliments on the last book and fully retract anything negative I said.
Switching voice talent a few books in was a hard pill for me to swallow but by the last book, the one I just finished today, I was fully committed to the work of George Guidall and realized my inability to adapt to change that was for the better may affect how other people view the series. I want to make sure anyone who reads this review knows that the voice talent is excellent and the author is a magician in balancing so many well developed characters and intersecting plot lines. Kevin J. Anderson is a master. This series is exceptional. Thank you.
I love audio books. I never read much as a kid, but now I could go through a book a week easy. Me and my wife are full time RVers and we love it. Seeyou on the road.
About the middle
I like each book to have a ending, not leave you hangi
He lets me see the story
I am a student currently near Dallas, TX, studying for Physics. I thoroughly enjoy a good sci-fi listen, as well as any scientific material here on Audible. Let the listening... BEGIN!
George Guidall was made for this series. He is the most appropriate narrator for the Saga of the Seven Suns altogether, and I have zero complaints about his performance(s).
As for the Saga itself, it is hard to abandon. I typically make it a habit to switch between two titles in my library so that I don't overindulge myself with one topic (audiobook) for too long or too consecutively, but this one I had to make an exception. I listened to it from start to finish. Not in one sitting of course, but I could not switch back and forth. I had to hear what was around the corner and how everything would develop. I also found myself forging internal bets on what would happen next. Always surprising!
Definitely recommended! (But start at Book 1)
The Narrator. He was awful and made a five star book into a three star book by his performance alone.
Rolinda Kett. She's flamboyant and interesting.
No. It does not seem as though this narrator even bothered to read or listen to the previous books. He butchers the characters names (based on how the previous narrator pronounced them), reads the book like he obviously has NO connection to the story, and reads in a boring monotone. If you can't sleep, forget Ambien, listen to this guy and take care of that problem. The voice overs were OK, but did not make up for all of his mispronunciations. For example, the compies. It was clearly stated in the earlier books that their names were two letters (E.A., NOT E-ah, G.U., NOT Goo). Not to mention all of the other butchered names (Tassia is pronounced Tah-sia, NOT Tay-sia). I certainly hope they get rid of this guy in future volumes. If the story was not so epic and good, I would have bagged this book.
The story is just what I like. It's the narrator that sucks.
PLEASE BRING BACK THE FIRST NARRATOR.
The book it's self was good, not the best in the series. the story was wraped up well and left just a few questions. all in all the end was a little anti-climatic and to be honest pretty predictable.
I have enjoyed this series, but I have to admit that I really didn't get into it until about half way throught the second book. He kept killing off Characters which made it hard to follow in the beginning. Book 3 is the best of them all.
I got sucked into these books and was a little annoyed when I realized book 3 wasn't going to wrap everything up. I now find out there are 8 books planned for this series, with the last one planned for 2008! My advice? Wait until all 8 books are out. I'm really not looking forward to waiting two more years to finish this sucker up, even though it is an interesting story that never seems to end.
