I would recommend this story to anyone that enjoys light hearted sci-fi.
I don't like to name specifics - that can be a spoiler. In general the fusion of the old-timey detective and the robot Mac was well done.
I am a sucker for a happy ending. This book ended well.
It's hard to listen to a book all in one sitting, or standing or even moving around...I don't listen to any book in one sitting.
The narrator did a fab job.
a very fun story bringing together some of the best parts of classic noir detective fiction and golden age science fiction with a modern cultural perspective
My preference for a good story is something totally unusual and not run of the mill stuff. Give me something I haven't heard before.
This was just a regular somewhat futurist story. Nothing exceptional, in fact the author seems not up on technology.
the story was good a little dated. Old Sci-Fi
Good list of characters, interesting characters
Some good action
I am a farrier and audiobooks really help time go by working alone. Audible makes it so much easier than using CD's!
Probably in the bottom half, it was ok but I wouldn't listen to it a second time, I think. I can hardly remember it now.
The reader was very good, I have to admit. I had not heard anything by him before.
Definitely. It's like a favorite movie that you watch over and over because there are always things you miss the first time through. The narration was excellent. It was delivered in the emotionless voice of a mechanical Joe Friday with a film noir flavor. Mac has a job to do and he's not going to let anything get between him and the completion of his mission.
Mack Megaton. He's just a bot trying to find his friends and trying to get by as unobtrusively as possible for a 7 foot wmd.
Mack Megaton is a very cool robot. Great story about morals. Mack battles with his conscience and bad guys at the same time. As I said, this is a very enjoyable story.
I am shocked at the numerous reviews of this audible book. I love sci-fi
detective stories, comedy and mixed genres, but this chimera did not
have the success that I hoped for when i bought it. The writing is not funny,
story did not make sense, I did not enjoy it and believe the author did not pull it off.
The narrator was good, but when the story and writing are so bad nothing
can help it
