This is a very long and difficult listen. It does bring the story of the colonization of Mars to an end, but it seems to take two lifetimes (with gerantological treatments) to get through it...wonderful for insomniacs, but would not recommend this as a listen whilst driving...sleep potential through the endless descriptions and narrations is just too big a risk!!
This is a book which brings the trilogy to an end, but is full of coincidences which are just too hard to swallow. I would have prefered to have been kept guessing rather than take a trip through this twisted tale. I would not recommend this.
I bought this book on a whim and was pleasantly surprised by the story, the writing and the narration. This book is wonderful for book lovers and history buffs alike, combining the two into an expose of a sliver of the history of the jews, together with interesting facts about book preservation and the relevance of both in today's society.
I loved this book. It captures the pain of being an outcast in the frustrating world of school and later in adulthood and brings an insight to small town living at the same time. I enjoyed the characters and the narration and I loved the way the author brought the past to life by giving it a "character" of its own in the form of an inanimate object. I found this to be a very complex story bringing me to laughter and to tears at different points in the story. At the end...there was hope and happiness, making this a most enjoyable read.
This is a great book, although the subject matter is disturbing. It made me gasp with horror in some places and to cry in others...I would listen to this one again as it is a fascinating story with many layers of complexity. The narrator was wonderful, bringing the characters to life and giving them depths which I would have missed had I read the print version. This one is highly recommended by me....
The only thing I missed in the audio version was the map, which would help position the characters as they travel through their world. I loved the narrator, who brought life to each character through his use of different voices and the way he introduced mannerisms to speech and speech patterns...
I loved Dani, who was a strong woman in a strange world and who welcomes her role and her fate by the end of the book.
This is my first ofr Roy Dotrice's performances...I look forward to others
Yes...but the length made it impossible
This was one book too many in the series...many of the old themes reappeared, with similar results. It was over long and a slow go in many places. It would only appeal to the very steadfast of the steadfast!
Game of Thrones
It was more interesting to have characters played out by a professional...gave the book some much needed personality.
I would suggest this as an abridged version. It became slow and ponderous about half way through and I caught myself thinking "Will this never end???" Characters are interesting and story is quite good but have not recommended it to my friends...
This is one of the best books I have come across in a long time. It is funny, dramatic, informative and so well written it was a joy to read...
