Yes, I thought it was very interesting and kept me informed on the characters
during the last 15 chapters actually held me more so.
He is very good
Beginnings of Cryptum: the forerunners secret
Just wasnt for me, I wanted sci-fi not drama. Liked other HALO books, just not this one.
New grandpa. Married 35 great years. Drink Batch 19,Tsing Tao, and Bohemia. Read Card, King, Hobb, Sawyer, Sci-Fi, Historical Fiction.
I was so excited about this book. I was a big fan of Greg Bear back in the 80's when he came out with Blood Music, The Forge of God, The Wind From a Burning Woman, and then in 2000, Darwin's Radio. I did not know anything about Halo, but this being a prequel, it seem like a good place to start. The ratings and reviews are excellent, yet I could not get into it. I listened for over 5 and a half hours, and it was just so boring. It has got to be one the slowest moving Sci-Fi's ever. I could not concentrate. My mind kept wondering off. I tried dozens of times to get back into the story, but it just was not working for me.
It seems it has worked for many others. So's youse takes your chances.
The narrator was also fairly dry and did not help out too much.
The phrase,You are what you dare, was repeated a couple of times in the book and I thought that was good advice.
Print. But I read way faster than most people.
The climax, though it took too long to get there.
Enlightenment to parts of the Halo mythology.
It starts waaay slow but the end sure pays off.
Greg Bear has been an excellent author for several decades. This is the worst work I have ever read or heard. This is one of the worst audiblebooks.com in the inventory. Unless you are 13 and under, select another book. This was totally disappointing.
Okay I admit, I'm not yet finished with this audiobook, but it's simply horrible, uninteresting, and utterly boring. If I had it in print, it would serve as kindling for a summer campfire. Run Away!
I hate silly marketing questions designed to reveal.
I've read several of Bear's works before, such as Darwin's Radio and was intriqued. I'm somewhat perplexed by this effort. It is singularly uninteresting and given it's shortness, bereft of drama. It's the sort of dreamy, trip through narcissism teenagers usually write as opposed to an entertaining novel. I can only assume that Bear wrote it as a contracted for, income producing piece. Not my cup of tea.
