A great SciFi book to start a series and pull you into the stories of the characters. Definitely worth a listen! I can't wait for the next one!
The language was terrible, F bombs everywhere, this really does nothing to build the characters. The plot seems to lag at times.
fair to middlin'
Please add a 'playlist' playback feature especially for all the short stories I love but won't buy because I am a binge entertainment watcher/listener/reader but because I cannot remember the order now I'm fighting with memory problems I cannot enjoy them. When I was 13 in 1978 reading Frank Herbert's "Dune" series my young brain could not just quote from a book but tell you when each book was published and which order to read them. Plus add 3 other others short stories that would help me enjoy the series much more.
Now I am old and my memory is failing, This app could help do these silly things for need, suggesting short stories to be read when and in what order between the great books but Audible is too lazy. I only turned to "books on tape" and Audible after my memory became so bad I could no longer read a book in print and by the time I turned the page still recall what I'd read! Nothing like I cannot remember how far down a page or into a chapter I'd read.
If I want any enjoyment from books now I must read them all continuously back to back for hours and hours without stop before I can recall anything of what I've read the day before. Fall asleep and I must start again from the very beginning most time unless I've done that a dozen or more times already!
Please use all this technology to help the elderly and disabled enjoy reading again!
starts slow but the story gets going it doesn't slow down. pays attention to realism of space makes it feel more real like you could really be there.
So, I thought this book was OK, but I just couldn't buy that one of the main characters was a captain of a ship, had served in the space navy, and was also so much of a total fucking idiot. It became very frustrating to listen to this book and I eventually had to stop.
good start to the expance series after watching season one i enjoyed the book way more. the narrator started off slow but towards the end I could tell who he was talking for. besides that I can't wait to finish the series
