I only bought this because of the narrator. It was an ok story but must have been a little hard for the narrator to read. Sometimes the logic does not hang together. I get no sense of the future society in the story. Apart from hearing about Q Ships and some other minor things it was hard to see this as a story set thousands of years into the future. The motivations of the characters sometimes seems silly too.Not sure I would tell my friends to spend money though.
SLAN by Kurt Vonnegut was a lot like this. It was the same sort of story (Mutant race taking over and being persecuted)
Ms. Van Dyk's voice has a special voice. Hearing her made the book more interesting. Maybe its is because I enjoyed her performance in the Jack McDevitt's Alex Benedict Novels. I absolutely refuse to buy Echo until she reads it.Double her salary :)
The plot is a little thin but today's movie audience would go for it. Lots of emphasis on sex and violence seems to attract today's movie goers. They would probably miss the underlying story. It would sell but I would not go.
