While I am sure that this is a very well written novel, I am having a great deal of difficulty with it in the audio version.
The voice changes between characters is somewhat confused, with imitation accents being the main difference. Sometimes though, the accents used are inappropriate for the particular character.
It is difficult to follow the reading here. Whether this is due to my hearing loss in specific frequencies, or just the continual drone of the reader, I am not sure.
Do listen to the audio clip before downloading this book. I think it might be better in written form.
I might listen to another book, but it would have to be with someone who can read well. This narrator should have the middle name of Monotony.
I am unable to follow the story, mainly because this narrator is just plain monotonous. Long minute have passed while listening to this book as I find that I have "zoned out".
I am halfway through the second section of this book and don't know what happened. I am not sure I will even try to finish it, or if I should start over.
I think that the written book might be better than this audio version
The premise of the story is great. The presentation of the story is strictly "America is Best".
Sad to report that this novel could have been much better had the story line been less Pro American, and been more Pro Humanity.
While the additional information of this space is greatly appreciated, Scott Brick is becoming tired with the series. His voice is wearing out, and he appears to have lost interest.
Perhaps it is time for a new reader for the Dune series?
Sorry folks. I find this book extremely hard to listen to. The author takes a lot of time developing characters to the detriment of the story.
This could have been reduced in length to about 100 pages. Perhaps an abridged version would be better.
This is definitely a "chick flick" and a review of the sample audio should be in order before buying.
I found this to be a boring monotonologue. I managed 3 hours before I had to turn to something that had some action to it.
This appears to be a number of biographies rolled into a "novel". Unfortunately, it reads more like a funeral announcement.
If you get your kicks fromthe Obits, then this one is for you.
