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.
SciFi crazy! Geek! Love my dog, Dylan! Was never a good reader, then I discovered Audible and topics that interested me. Generally SciFi, b
This series was one of the types of SciFi books that introduced me to 'book series'!
I never really knew books can continue into a series or sometimes called Trilogy.
Audible brought me back to books.
I loved this series. It kept me engaged and I loved the characters.
This was a little different than my typical sci-fi books that I like but close enough.
I don't know if I'm using the correct term but it felt like I was reading an opera. A sci-fi opera but with works.
Today, I decided to actually post some reviews for the very first time. I have been using Audible for many years now. Maybe if you like my selections that means your into the same books as I am in and I will read your selections if that's possible now, to share someone else's book list?
Anything read by George Guidall is worth listening to. The first book took a while to connect all the people and plots, but by now we know who's who and what's happening, and in this book all the threads are coming together. I don't think print or audio is intrinsically better, just what you prefer. I like to listen to George and I don't have 17 hours to sit and read.
The aliens are not just like humans. Social structures are varying and believable. There is treachery and heroism. In the first book, I only cared about a few people. Now I care about many. I can't wait for one good guy to gather followers and do in the really, really bad guy. I can't wait to see how mixing human DNA with alien changes another of the good guys, and will those two separated lovers ever be able to get together? Will the other separated lovers find each other again, and how will that be given the changes that have occurred? And where the heck is Margaret?
Just as good. He gets the emphases right. He gets the inflections right. He gets the voices right. He adds tension and excitement, or tenderness as needed.
Sorry, I do have work and family, so this is not a possibility. Nevertheless, I resented having to turn it off to sleep.
This really is a saga of worlds and species, all with histories and cultural behaviors different from human (as if humans all had a common history and culture). Is there really a race or species that should be annihilated?
