I really enjoyed the first book, but labored through this one. Only one of the many storylines kept my interest, and the performance was not entertaining enough to to make up for the story. It's not so bad that I won't give the next one a try.
This is really good series. The book goes by so quick. I recommend this book to everyone. It has lots to offer. Looking forward to the next one.
It is a good reading. The only negative is that the reader only has three or four unique voices and so they get recycled. Otherwise both the story and the narration are amazing.
Yes Except I now know the narration foe book 4 was changed and is HORRIBLE, So in retrospect I wish I had never started the series because now I can not finish it. That is how bad the narration in book 4 is, even though I love this book and the series up to that point
I am so disappointed in this book. The author's ideas are not very inventive, and he spends so much time in describing the subjective states and experiences of the characters that the plot barely moves. I'm surprised the book is so highly rated on audible. It has more in common with a soap opera or a romance than with science fiction. In fact, the most dissatisfying part is the complete lack of science or realistic portrayal of space. Second to that is the absence of depth in any of the characters. If you are a fan of thoughtful SciFi, I urge you to look elsewhere. Try Ian M. Bank's Culture novels.
Interesting and engaging read. Kevin J. Anderson creates engaging characters and situations. it's both enjoyable and engaging to watch his character development.
This is definitely a good listen.
