What a disaster. 100 years and 100 pages too long!
Hope no one reads this first, because I'm sure they will never read the great Wool.
It felt like the author found a 1,2,3 list of how to make money writing scifi for dumb girls.
"And girls love kitty cats, so maybe you can stick one in".
Painfully simplistic. Some other reviewers liked other books from this author, so I might try another, but this one was awful.
Each character had such a unique and perfectly suited accent and cadence, it was such a pleasure to listen. Of course, excellent narration won't save a boring story! This is so full of complex historical details, I was swooning with joy. I come from Eastern European Jewish background, and have middle Eastern friends, and the insights and second thoughts and prayers seemed so very believable. Thank you so much, can hardly wait to hear your next book.
Science Fiction writiers CAN create well developed characters, not just toy action figures!
Hip Hip Hooray!
Especially loved how we are isolated at the army base for most of the book, and then as delighted as Meg to finally get to see where Lewal lives.
The different voices were terrific, and allowing Meg to hear the thrumming and interpret it was brilliant.
BRAVO BRAVO BRAVO!
Love Stefan Rudnicki, but was astonished at his ability to create voices for the Vssy so different from all the other aliens that have come before. It helped so much keep track of the different groups.BRAVO!
I was shocked that so many of you didn't like this one. I was thrilled to see the complex societies, the amazing ideas Foster has regarding alien life, the thoroughly realized worlds he creates for us.
Loathing bureaucracy, I was thrilled to see it skewered so successfully! And it was also refreshing to see an author admit that consensus takes FOREVER.
