Love: The original storyline. Absolutely loved the story itself and I wish I had the time to actually read but alas I do not and must rely on audio books during my hour and a half commute.
Hate: I spent much of the time being angry that I had to hear the story through this reader. I can normally learn to deal with a reader's idiosyncrasies but even after listening to the entire series I still found myself counting down the minutes to being done with this man's narration. Each time he sucked in breath and licked his lips I would twinge - this alone is hard to ignore. Add to it influxes of pitch at the wrong times and mispronounced words. I will never ever listen to another book read by him.
Also, another small annoyance was the music between chapters. Many times the music would blast my ears at triple the volume of his voice.
In the end I'm happy I got the chance to hear this series but the narration made it feel a bit like punishment.
Story is very good. But the narrator is very frustrating to listen to. He talks very fast and sometimes does not pay attention to character change and punctuation.
I'm a mom, grandma & great grandma learning to do things I like to do & can do totally alone. Listening to great books---it's fun!
STRUGGLED TO FINISH I FOUND JUMPING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN WORLDS AND LOCATIONS DISTRACTING. IT;S A GOOD SERIAL STORY. BUT I HAD TO FORCE MYSELF TO LISTEN.F
Excellent story and narration throughout this trilogy. I really enjoyed the journey and will look for other books by this author!
You can't end it here! It just circles, can't you carry on so we can see if Samuel is saved?
Absolutely brilliant as usual, God has blessed you with a talent of note! Narrator was consistently convincing in his delivery
this is an awesome book. Lamont does a great job conveying the characters and tension on the situations. I was satisfied by the ending.
I knew nothing of the book or author before listening. Without the religous undertones this is a weird science fiction piece that is a bit long. After listening to the author interview I am still a bit confused. The reader is great.
I fully enjoyed these books. These are much different from Adam and Three, but just as good. Give the Circle Trilogy a try.
I loved it and hated it. The last book in the series was more difficult for me to read. I don't know if it was the fact that it was the last one and I had done them in a marathon, or if it was because it just was the least interesting than the other two. I loved the symbolism, it was beautiful. But I have noticed that Mr. Dekker seems to cram too much into the end of both his books and the end of his series. I just finished reading one of his latest books and noticed the same thing.
