A sensory immersion
The vast wealth of detail.
A long, slow, quiet and thought-provoking submersion in a place that has a tinge of Doctor Caligari's Cabinet and yet is uniquely it's own universe.
Have not read the book. Certainly shall look for the book now.
Tobias Smollett - Roderick Random springs to mind.
Obvious why - seafaring books by seafaring men in the robust style of their century.
The timbor of his voice, and style and pace of his narration, perfectly matched my presumption of Hearts of Oak. Would strenously request Mr. Surherlands narration of Peregrine Pickle - perfect voice for Commodore Trunnion.
Yes - but a bit lengthy for one sitting.
Recommend only for current sci-fi readers.
Puzzled I bought it actually; I usually read classics.
So three stars for me.
No thank you. I only make rare forays into sci-fi and then mostly
BEM (Bug-Eyed Monsters).
The reading was quite well done and allowed me to carve while listening to a story.
I have no idea.
Thank you for your efforts to present this book.
Absolutely. Read as the author heard it and felt it.
N/A - these were very short excerpts of storys read by the author.
Thank you for this small window into the author's storys.
