This isn't really science fiction and should be labelled as such. I LOVE everything else I've read/listened to by this author, but this book I did not like. It's a well-written and great story, but IT IS NOT science fiction. More like fantasy.
Narration was fine.
This book is awful. Barely an intelligent thought in there. Even for someone who has never gone to Google+, or used it for more than 15 minutes, it's a waste of time since you could learn all told in the book in 15 minutes. For a decent book on Google and Google+, check out Jeff Jarvis' "What Would Google Do". There one learns something from a book riddled with intelligent and new ideas.
Great business ideas and the author is well on top of what's going on in business and social media.
Rich characters and something different.
Excellent and timeless science fiction. I had rather given up on older science fiction because the new stuff (Robert Sawyer, Vernor Vinge, et al) were so good. Went back to the 60's with this one and was amazed.
Sawyer can write amazing stuff (Calculating God, WWW Trilogy, Starplex) but he is just as able to write average stuff like this one.
Reasonably interesting but disappointing really. Not as deep a story as the author @RobertJSawyer can write. I'd guess it's watered down because it's written so it can be turned into a movie.
Wonderfully read by Jeff Woodman.
Reads more like a bad romance novel than science fiction. Robert Sawyer is usually absolutely excellent but this second book is terrible!
A 1st rate science fiction story. I love the sounds effects. Great narrator.
Great science fiction!
The story is far into the future and the voice seems to match it. The narrator, Jennifer Van Dyck, must be the best voice I've heard in the many dozens of books I've listened to here at Audible.
The story was excellent, keep me intensely listening, and had some great new science fiction concepts.
Hard stories to listen to. They're packed with info for one thing. And there aren't good breaks between stories. I often wondered if I was still on the previous story or a new one.
Still, there are some excellent stories in here, and I thoroughly enjoyed some. The author also has an excellent voice, which was a pleasure to listen too.
