I gave up after 10 hours, I couldn't take it anymore. Poor character development and a preachy condescending style turned me off. The author seems more concerned with explaining basic physics than developing the store.
There's nothing really bad about this book, but there nothing really good about it either. Excellent narration by Luke Daniels, but IMO the storey is, at best, mediocre.
This book is so well done you would think it actually happened. I applaud Andy Weir for having the ability to bring humor to sci-fi - Which is really rare in sci-fi books. I've read and listened hundreds of sci-fi, and I can't remember ANY that made me laugh like this book. If you are looking for aliens and ray guns you won't find it here, this is one man’s struggle to stay alive and get off Mars. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down.
This is great science fiction, well written, well researched, and full of suspense.
Idiotic concept - Hey, we'll show you that you have no reason to hate and kill us....Then, we're all best friends...Kiss kiss.
Geez, what a bunch of bilge. Too bad we can't give negative scores.
I've listened to most YA Dystopian Novels that are popular now, The Hunger Games, The Giver, Fahrenheit 451,Wool,Divergent, and The Maze Runner, but this is by far the most engaging and memorable. ..To Ryan Winfield - More please!!
This book is worth a listen, especially in the beginning. The powers of the main character are described in a interesting way. Unfortunately, you may find the dialogue between the other main character (or significant other) to cause you to retch. Conversations with "Oh my darling" are, at points, laughable. The scifi is good, the romance is bad..IMO.
I would suppose someone that enjoys reading Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica for it's purely literary aspects.
Riddle has an interesting idea. I might try the second books, but if whips around like the first to the point of confusion, I'm done. If this book were a rollercoaster, each rider would snap their neck.
No scenes, I would change the flow in the latter 1/2 of the book - MAKE IT LESS CONFUSING
If your going to listen to a guided meditation your mind should not wander aimlessly...I found nothing of value in this series.
I'm not sure this concept would ever work for meditation
I don't think it would have mattered.
A waste of a credit
The Dragon (St. George)
The battle against the Sixteens
Couldn't stop listening
It's like a cross between "The Walking Dead" and "Hero's"
Couldn't get through it - My mind kept wandering. I could not get into the characters.
No, not necessarily.
I just couldn't get into any of them.
The pace, although the end gets a little wild.
Yes this would make a great movie, the Squales would interesting to see.
