Exactly as hoped.
The introduction of the book by the original author, Musashi.
I listened to it 5 times allready, I am sure I will do so again.
A marvelous book that I without a doubt will also buy in print. The performance of Scot Brick was excellent, clearly understandable and with good pronouncement, at least as far as I understand it (I do not speak japanese).
I tried listening to it twice and bought the sequal. I can't say I really understood why I did that, I hoped for a good starship pirate story but didn't get it. It sounded so promising though.
Inconsistencies in the story, clearly unbelievable jumps in logic and a lack of focus on what actually was happening.
No real favorite, it was all rather bland.
After carefull consideration I can't recommend it.
I listen to many sci fi stories and while ofcourse you can't always understand the choices people make this universe seems made up especially to show just how great the main character is while his "deductions are half guess and half wrong half the time". That is fun when Jack Vance writes a story but not in a story that takes his character so serious.
This audio version actually does create an interesting athmosphere for listening. You will be absorbed by the story and the ones who tell it.
They are superb actors who really bring this story to life.
Dune, Arrakis, desert planet.
It is really an audioplay, not a audiobook. Its a great listen of a great story and I loved every minute of it, moreso because of the athmosphere created by sound and voice from the very start.
Yes, any one who enjoy's militairy SCI-FI would like this.
The honor series comes to mind. But as militairy SCI-FI it stands on its own with having respect for relatif distances, speed of light, etc.
Christian Rummel always sounds good and proffesional he is one of my favorite performers.
He won the war, will he keep the peace?
light history for a light price.
The break for non existent commercials is very annoying and could have easily been cut out making for smaller download, a compacter format and shorter listening time.
