Yes. I enjoyed this book almost as much as ALVH. I would have said, as much, but right at the end it seemed that the author got in a hurry and rushed the ending. But, overall it was well worth the time and money.
I would have said that it was the Zombie attack, but the action seemed to be abbreviated. Almost as if, like the ending, the story was over edited or rushed to an ending.
Not your Mother's nativity story!
Overall a good yarn.
I did not get bored and the story was not foolishly predictable. Searching for a new author and new book is like eating everyflavorbeans, sometimes you get something good but alot of times you get earwax. This story was hot chocolate.
The battle between Phina's uncle and grandfather. Fruitbat was like a little half dragon Ninja.
I am looking forward to the next book.
Absolutely! 20 years ago I discovered an amazing new world in the Uplift novels and like an unsupervised child with a bag of halloween candy, I devoured them. Over the next couple of years I read all of Brin's novels and The Practice Effect is my favorite with Startide Rising coming in a close second. I am very happy that this book finally came out in audio and pleased that the narration was good and did not distract from what I consider an amazing story.
The practice effect!
The narration did not distract from the story.
I enjoyed Dennis's Wright Brothers moment.
I am disappointed that the only Brin novel that ever made it to film was the Postman. The Postman movie/screenplay was an unmitigated disaster and I would have loved to have seen The Uplift War or Startide Rising made into a GOOD film.
