Modern, and as the story goes, it plays without being redundant on the subject theme. Even though it's not long, it knows when to end – but the ending has a deep & insightful insight – that is good to remember. PKD delivers.
It gets better with each audible chapter. It helped to go online to see a list of all the characters to get them straight but wow - Aarons drive, Corrie-Lyn's attitude, Oscar and Paula’s meeting, Araminta is importantly cool and wild. I am sold on this author and this story arc. Can’t wait for more and to understand more about Edeard. As good as any Al Reynolds book - and that is a compliment from me.
Can't get enough of this author A. Reynolds. Absolution Gap (as well as Redemption Ark) were daring in brushstrokes, but this last book helps imagine areas that were missing or not clear in the whole Revelation Space scenery. The Greenfly entity makes you think farther than you thought the Inhibitors would go. Just being able to hear more about Clavain is worth it. The different stories fit in nice and actually are gripping with drama and action. To me the whole series is a classic along with the side books like The Prefect and "Chasm City" (which is a must). If you CAN -- get into this whole space opera burrito. I hear he is making a Doctor Who story. wow
I didn't want to take the ear plugs out, as (again) I was enthralled by Reynolds' images and style. They bicker and scheme and yet grow onward in the fantasy of youth-in-deep-time. If this is space opera then I am a patron. E.T.'s and future technology that is sharp and imprisoning. I can't wait for his Doctor Who book/audio. Still makes you want to hear some of A. Reynolds' other stories - even though this is my 3rd of his.
Great time travel and a look at that period. I thought I would not like it at that length - but jeez it was gripping the whole way. A big 'yes' on this one.
Why and where is all the sci fi. A classic? Ok it has great vocabulary. Latin to impress us?
Ad-tedium (if that was a word)
Engaging all the way and twists that made you want more. The narrator was right on the money, tone, energy, cadence just a pleasure to listen to.
Wish all audiobooks were this good!
TOTALLY. THE NUANCES AND BYZANTINE PATHS OF THE DIALOG ARE BEAUTIFUL. EXCITINGLY SO THAT I COULD NOT PUT THE AUDIO DOWN. IT MAKES YOU WANT MORE. MIND BITING.
EVERY BIT OF IT - He's great - Why oh why was he not in the next one 'FOUNDATION AND EARTH' ? HE NEEDED TO FINISH IT - Remake the last one?
ASIMOV had me sold on this one. And I thought the trilogy was great.
excellent mind blower
Accents can be problematic but you get used to them and they then sound classy.
wouldn't know where to start
The imagination and visually discriptive recitation A C Clarke used.
The Hermians attitude and Ramans' indifference.
Mind blowing technology
