    Welcome to Chilo, a planet with corrosive rain, crushing pressure, and deadly heat. Fortunately, 14-year-old Timas lives in one of the domed cities that float 100,000 feet above the surface, circling near the edge of a monstrous perpetual storm. Above the acidic clouds the temperature and pressure are normal. But to make a living, Timas, like many other young men, is lowered to the surface in an armored suit to scavenge what he can.

    Overall

    I listened to this book over the course of 2 days of travel. With a 10 hour car ride each way I needed something to keep me awake and keep my mind occupied. This book did the trick. I enjoyed it and I really like the narrator. With his voice, the book had a little bit of the same feel as the "Altered Carbon" book this same narrator reads. This is worth a credit.

    The Mote In God's Eye is their acknowledged masterpiece, an epic novel of mankind's first encounter with alien life that transcends the genre. No lesser an authority than Robert A. Heinlein called it "possibly the finest science fiction novel I have ever read".

    "Good Listen"
    Overall

    The narrator is fine, it takes a few minutes to get used to his style but it is not bothersome after you get used to it. The book itself is a fascinating listen for the first 3/4. The last 1/4 which ties up some of the loose ends has less action but a little more intrigue and politics. Overall I really enjoyed this book and finished it in days.
