    Story
    (40)

    It’s 2026, and catastrophe has struck from an unexpected source. The Alpha Centauri supernova has risen like a second sun, rushing Earth toward its last summer. Floods, fires, starvation, and disease paralyze the planet. In a blue aurora flash of gamma rays, all microchips worldwide are destroyed, leaving an already devastated Earth without communications, transportation, weaponry, or medicine. The disaster sets three groups of survivors on separate quests. A militant cult seizes the opportunity to free their leader, known as the Eye of God, from the long-term coma to which a court sentenced her.

    What made the experience of listening to Aftermath the most enjoyable?

    story wasnt bad, few different things going on.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    almost stopped listening to the book. the reader sounds kinda robotic and droning.. after a while when things started happening and more characters were introduced. the reading got better and didnt sound as bad and went away after a while.

    Story
    (409)

    When the world was young and Gods still walked among their mortal children, a headstrong orphan boy set out to explore the world. Thus began the extraordinary adventures that would mold that youthful vagabond into a man, and the man into the finely honed instrument of Prophecy known to all the world as Belgarath the Sorcerer.

    What made the experience of listening to Belgarath the Sorcerer the most enjoyable?

    Love the rest of the series. and this entry explained several things in the story.


    What other book might you compare Belgarath the Sorcerer to and why?

    hhmm just the rest of the series.


    What three words best describe J. P. Linton’s voice?

    um..this is where things go wrong. after listening to both the belgariad and the malorean with one voice. i found hearing a new voice odd. and almost stopped listening to it due to this. however i loved the story so gave it another shot. the new voice became tolerable. but you can tell this narator has not listened to the other books. same names are hard to recognise due to being said wrong or the pronounceiation was wrong. which really annoying at times. specially when in one of the other books i do believe they even describe how to pronounce one of the mames if i remember right..


    Any additional comments?

    even with the annoying narrator the books is still worth getting if you love the rest of the story.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have enjoyed this story thus far and i am sure to like the rest. plenty going to keep you interested. although ocationaly when they jump to different characters and their story line i get a little messed up for a bit.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    not sure


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    recording seems to be messed up. breaks and pauses thru the whole book. and every now and then it loops back a line or 2.
