I enjoyed how the video was incorporated into a book.
Same as above the story was simple, yet very enjoyable
The various voice and the inflections in his voice bring the story to life.
It a great book if you enjoyed the video game series.
This book was very slow to get started, but picked up a little into the story. Therefore, I gave it an average rating since it almost lost me in the beginning.
Yes, so far I have not been disappointed by Paul's writings.
John does well, but he has limited voice inflecions, so some characters sounded the same. It was not too bad, but noticable at times when certain characters spoke to one another.
I like the Forgotten Realm stories. The Drizzt books have been published out of order on Audible, so that series unfortunatley lost it's appeal (it's hard to read a book, then go back). That is why I tried this series and so far I've enjoyed them.
Had I not read Steel World first I may not have read anymore B.V. Larson based soley on this novella. The book was short as I expected, but ended abruptly and the narrator could not make reflextions in his voice ruining dialogue.
No, just the rest of this series.
Yes, the premise was good, but the development was rushed and the narrator struggled. Combine those two items it made for a poor read/listen.
I would not have cut anyone, but there needed to be more development. Yes, it is a novella, but it doesn't excuse the struggles this story had.
As with the Star Force Series, I read the novella first and it helped me decide to buy the rest of the series. In this case, the novella turned me off, so I'd caution the author not to rush through these short stories - they may make or break the rest of the series for people.
The change in human society and how Earth adapted to a superior race forcing mankind to become indentured to a galactic confederation.
There are several characters that I enjoyed throughout the book - each had their own priorities and each went about ensuring their personal success and that of the Legion.
Mark did a fine job, good narration makes or breaks an audiobook and I was not disappointed.
I mostly read Fantasy books and was looking for something different - Steel World was suggested by Audible as something I might enjoy. I've not read B.V. Larson before, so this book was a new experience into his world of sci-fi that I really knew nothing about.
The book puts words to thoughts surrounding the polar opposites of Introvert and Extrovert personalities I've often thought about. The book is written in a familiar tone, making it easy to follow along and the narrator does a nice job carrying that ease of format into her performance.
The book has some nice thought provoking moments where you can actually visualize people you know fitting one or more of the examples given to illustrate specific topics.
Tamara has a good voice for books like this - since this is the first book on this topic I have purchased her narration made it easy to follow along.
No, but again it did provoke thought, which is what I had expected it would.
Good book about a topic often misunderstood.
I'm not sure after this short and poorly ended sequel.
The other books were much much better.
The was very short - the Lost Files seemed longer. It ended poorly in an odd place.
One of the better books I've read
Constant flow through the story line and not very predictable which helps hold your attention.
I'm usually underwhelmed by narrators, but Victor is an exception. He does a great job in this series.
Read the pre-series before this one and everything will make better sense.
Audiobooks depend upon the narrator almost as much as the story itself and this series has been spot on with solid performance. The only two other series (Wheel of Time and Eragon) seem to have pulled off a consistant performance of the books I've listened too.
Great job by all!
Various times, some were predictable, but others were a twist in the story I wasn't expecting. One of the nice things about this series.
I was surprise by the change in 9's behavior between this book and the 'Lost Legacy'. However, it flowed nicely. I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a little escape literature without all of the 'out of this world' spells and powers some series feel they have to add to be exciting.
The narrator of the first 2 books was hit or miss, but this person was just horrible - very mono-tone.
There are also errors in the speaking where the narrator corrects himself. Why would these not be edited out?
Same as in book 2, there are so many specifics already introduced in the first two books I found myself fast forwarding to get to something new.
Narrated by someone that could very their voice and less repeats in details already mentioned in the first two books.
Disappointment in the Series
Just that I hope the next book is not put together this poorly.
Never read the book
J.C. I thought did a better job holding the various voices together in the second book.
I liked the book, it held me well enough for the finally, I think others will enjoy it.
Way too much explaination of events from the first book. It almost seemed like the author was filling in space to make the book longer by adding very detailed accounts of the characters history from the first book.The book is a great perspective of the Atantis story, the dialog is a little predictable but it is not enough of a distraction to give the book bad marks.
