There is a really great plot here built in a well thought out universe. The story telling and details are better than the first couple of books and I am excited to see where Anderson is going to take us next.
I like the concepts of multiple races. Truly different life forms. Different factions within races. Different age of races etc. This ads a lot of dimension to the story and universe Anderson has created.
The true disappointment with this entire audible series is the narrator. He has no depth and every character sounds the same. It sounds like he is reading a phone book or a medical journal. He is HORRIBLE!
I started it. I like several of the story lines, but some of the characters irritate me... If this was a printed book I would skip their chapters and still be able to follow the story.
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.
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
Everything is subjective.
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 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.
