Great! Scott does a fantastic job reading a Sci-Fi classic. I read this book in my early teens and have loved it ever since. Just listened for the first time and it is a very good rendition.
The story is a bit hard to get a handle on for the first quarter of the book. After that it gets a bit smoother. The end is OK but is a bit too convenient.
A bit better than the first one, not much. Her writing has settled down a bit. However, there I still have no emotional attachment to any of the characters, and while there is a mild interest in how the story turns out, it's just mild.
I really tried to finish this book. I very seldom stop a book in the middle, I always think that there must be a reason book was published, but this one just didn't make it. Some of the thoughts do have merit, but they are by no means original, and really shouldn't be told this way.
I read this book 25+ years ago. I burnt out on the series after about six or seven books. However, some other Anne McCaffrey's books are some of my favorite books (Audible only has abridged versions of the others which I will not listen to, sigh). I like her writing style even though this particular story was a bit simplistic, and easy to guess the end, it was enjoyable.
The narrator had a few voices that were mildly irritating. However, the story was fun, and complicated enough that it was worth the read. Not really sci-fi as much as fantasy. I'll continue with the series. I guess I will have to watch the movie now.
Interesting mix of Crime, Spiritualism, Western, Mystery, etc. While this was a decent enough story, I found it just a bit depressing. the justice system doesn't work and even the main character gets depressed.
Picked this up on sale since it had some good reviews. A bit simplistic and a tad juvenile. Very little good dialog, overall plot had promise but it was not fulfilled.
Not bad. Interesting take on crime and punishment. I wonder if the author has a bit of hypochondria.
Read this a long time ago, enjoyed it then and enjoyed listening to it. Good story telling.
Another romantic mystery comedy. Nothing special. But I'm a sucker for these types of stories so I enjoyed it. Think I'll continue with the series.
