I enjoyed the characters and overall story of this book, but I feel that the story was 50% plot/character building and 50% intricate, tech-speak, and mostly unnecessary detail that would cause a loss in momentum and made it hard to follow the story, especially in audio form. That said, under all the fluff was a very interesting and action packed story.
This is a good listen, but has some unusual names for supplemental characters and races that may make it difficult to keep straight.
This book has remedies of religion, ironic to unbelievable situations, and stays true to sci-fi. I found myself saying, save the Cheerleader, save the world, and wanting to know more about the characters as the story progressed. Then, the tale gave me the necessary back story to reach another epiphany moment. in the end all of the loose ends are resolved and the winners and losers are declared. This presentation came in for a win in my books!
Wil Wheaton does an excellent job as narrator. Giving life to all the characters. The story was placed well leaving the listener wanting more.
Wil Wheaton reads a great adventure with interesting and realistic characters. I loved both the reading and the writing. Even when the most outlandish events are being unveiled, characters behave in fun and realistic ways. Highly recommended.
I wanted to prove that I have the ability to love a good fart joke buy getting this book- that I wasn't stuck up, or whatever- but daaaaaang. As another reviewer said: this is a really long fart joke that isn't really all that funny. I love the narrator, but the story- I couldn't even finish it.
