I ended up just listening to this book while I was working. Since my work requires reading and writing all day long, and I was still able to follow the story, there wasn't a lot of substance that required close attention.
I got the book because I have liked other things by Weber, but ouch. Next time I will pay more attention to other reviews.
because I am a big Weber fan. I haven't made more than an hour dent in it. There are so many characters and connections that I'm going to have to try to read this and make notes. The reader is flat and everything runs together.
Wonderful book. The narrator on the otherhand speaks way to fast and his fake accents are horrible. In some places pretty much impossible to make out what is actually being said.
I loved every other book I read, but this one was like reading a book report about a book report. SLOW. About 10 minutes of interesting action. The rest was backstory or internal monologs.
Narrator was fine
The first 15 hours
I have enjoyed many of webers books, but this one just goes on and on and on on political background and I could not keep any interest in it
