I was expecting to love this audio book, anticipating a new world as intricately developed as Dune or Pern. What you get is a rock planet (maybe) with no understanding of how the people manage to live. There are apparently different races, some in combat with each other. Most of the book has to do with warfare with a token nod to the women characters as the only ones who can read but what's with the hidden hand schtick? I stuck it out through part 4 but can't bear to listen to another minute. I'm sure glad it didn't take 2 credits to get this one.
I don't usually write reviews but I hope I can save a credit and many hours for another listener.
Yes I would recommend it, it is a classic of American literature made even more wrenching and poignant by the narrator.
He renders Meredith's lines just as she would have spoken them.
Yes, but then I wouldn't have had it to listen to for a second and third sitting.
Inventive concept of modern police utilizing magic
Yes, but I don't allow myself to do so.
The author reads well and is interesting to listen to. As an author he should stick to a male point of view. There is some fairly graphic descriptions of sexual activity which are totally appropriate to the stories.
Yes, for a short listn
I loved his natural accent and it was easy to distinguish the variou characters.
The straightforward narration, the descriptions of the locations, the lack of pandering to the expected.
His great accents that distinguished the individual characters and put life into each one.
Harold, who goes from a constrained and restricted world view to a broader understanding of himself and his place in the world.
No. I seldom listen to the same thing twice.
The debunking of religious faith
