I agree with other reviews about how the changes in the voices are a bad thing. But, I had already read this book and really liked it, so I decided to buy this audiobook anyway. These reviews had prepared me for the worst (in the same way that the reviews of Star Wars I were so bad that I was pleasantly surprised when I went to see it) and I was happy to learn that I was able to deal with the voice changes. Actually, the narrator stays mostly the same for the first half and then I think changes 3 times in the last half. I wish it wasn't so, but regardless I still enjoyed listening to it and plan on listening to it many times in the future.
I wish there was an audiobook version of Sphereland. Flatland is the classic book on this subject and is quite enjoyable to listen to. But, in my opinion, Sphereland has less discussion of the social structure of flatland and spends more time enlightening the reader about how we can think of four dimensions in our three dimensional world.
This is an abridged audiobook. That might not be so bad for other Pern books, but this is the first in the series. This is the book that lays the groundwork for the entire series, but unfortunately almost all of the groundwork is summarized in the beginning of the audiobook. I left with a feeling that I had missed a lot of the background information.
