Takes too long to provide what background it add to the overall plot. Another narrator change which does nothing to add to the overall pleasure of hearing the story.
It helps you to sleep if your an insomniac. I'll try my best to finish this series because I hate to start and not finish. I have always been a fan of Mr. Weber but if he starts another series like this it will be my last of his.
The narrator only had one voice. this was more akin to being read a story than listening to a performance
I love the books I think David Weber is a great writer. Charles Keating will put you to sleep. Hes 1 tone of reading is almost too hard to stay awake.
Maybe, but, not many people I know have the patience to get through one book, much less the series.
I have found it difficult to keep track of the many characters--
I love the premise of the story. Moving from an agrarian society to space takes a long time, but, advancement is so slow It feels like real time. Any slower and it should be titled, Life and Times of a Glacier!
A great story, but a brutal listening experience thanks to Mr. Keating. I quite enjoy this series and found the printed book quite entertaining. After the pleasing style of the first 4 books, the style and monotone voice of Mr. Keating became quite annoying as the book wore on. Who made this decision?
