I've never gone through an audio book so quickly..i usually savour a good audio book in my down time and/or on long trips..this one I just couldn't stop listening to.
Can't think of a single thing wrong with this medium-hard Sci fi romp. It harkens back to Dune often, but with better character motivations. And like Dune, the plotting, poltical intrigue and moral ambiguity is excellent. Just wow.
I bought this book after watching the show on SyFy channel. Even though the major plot points had been spoiled for me by the show I still enjoyed the book and was engaged throughout. I'm excited for the next installment.
Great story. Great reader BUT the reader's pauses were far too long. Even when listening at 2.0x or 2.5x, the pauses felt awkwardly long.
I really like the first season of the show. It was a little cheesy at times and some of the plot lines were rushed. i do like how their deviations from the book were informative and actually added to the story. I was holding out on the second season until I could get through this book.
As always, the book is better and I am excited to get to the second major book. This is my fill in series until I can get the next book in the Tale of Fire and Ice (Game of Thrones).
The twists in the book are un-expected and alarming sometimes, but in a good way. At least Miller's character really has a Dick Tracy flair to him that I like. He is by far my favorite character. I already have book 2 and three queued up.
