I read this on talking books
A very exciting story
Because that's the name of a friend of mine.
I wondered if the 'good guys' were going to win
No comments for now.
Yes. Great narration and interesting plot.
The congressman and his neurotic female companion. His steadfast belief that a compromise could be reached and the slowly evolving interplay between her and him was unforeseen and interesting when it finally started to show itself.
The climax where the president was overridden and the congressman played his cards very close to the vest.
The Herding of Humanity
I could really never get my head around miniature elephants being able to bring humanity to the brink of destruction.
Believable, great yarn
The Congressman, he's like the every-man of the story.
Pronunciation of the alien names was difficult when reading the print version.
Yes but it was great for a long car ride.
Retired nightclub performer/computer technician, I now teach hula and ukulele to seniors, and record Hawaiian music for my halau!
This book is pure entertainment! It is like candy for my ears. I am still in the first part of the book, but I am having such a great time listening to it, I am ready to rate it. It is one of those rare finds where the story and the narrator are a perfect match and the result is delightful.
Because I haven't actually finished the book, I can't say much about the story but thus far it has totally sucked me in. I can hardly put it down.. The broad range of characters is astonishing and the narrator's ability to voice each one differently and so naturally switch between them is amazing.
I gotta go now. Right now the Russian general's secretary is sitting on his lap unbuttoning her blouse...
a Very good story the voice acting was very good however the story had elements that frankly really tested my ability to suspend disbelief ....at those times i would say to my self...huh? really? come now! but all that aside i would read/ listen to this again !
I loved this story when it 1st came out. It was one of the 1st SF books I reccomended to my son to read as a young adult and he also loved it.
A good story with interesting charactors......Harry Red Rules
Harry Red. Average guy that does good. Could be next door neighbor
Clinical treatment and research awareness. Sci-fi to Science to Maximim PC/parenting. How to best network HDMA? 70% SciFi-thrillers-30% science
Good enough to keep you listening. More action with a fun story. One themee point of a different perspective but not that engoosing. Good scifi action.
I don’t have a lot of time for reading, but Audible allows me to listen to all the great books that I thought I would never get to read.
I love this book 10of10, best of Larry Niven , Jerry Pournelle!
One of the best Sci-Fi books I have ever read, and loved it just as much on Audiobook!
Top 30?? I have over 100 in my library and it is hard to decide.
Read the story in paperback years ago, just a good sci-fi story
Just a good read and now a good listen as well.
The narrator was amazing with earthling and alien accents. I was truly mesmerized and never distracted from the story. I don't think I've ever heard a narrator add so much to a story since I listened to the Aubrey Maturin Series with Simon Vance.
The story was fresh and full of political and scientific interest. I believed all the characters, alien and earthlings motivation. It always made sense so that when everything came together I got it. Foot Fall. Great Title.
No, looking forward to them.
No way. I enjoyed it over a couple weeks.
