The interconnections of the stories as characters cross over.
In the beginning when his brother is killed
shooting down the Messerschmitt in Spain.
The ending is particularly poignant because he clearly states what he believes and feels and since his murder it's clear he died for it.
Having the wife's perspective and her view of how the decisions in a military household impact the family was a moving aspect of the story.
Absolutely, in fact, don't plan to read this without reading Daemon and don't plan to read it without reading the next. The story is wonderful and I couldn't put it down. Who hopes for a longer commute, so you can listen to more.
(Spoiler alert) As the town is saved by ROy
Jeff's reading is key part of the experience. He pulls the reader in and transports you into the story, you don't want to stop.
Few books lead you to keep thinking when will the Major get what's coming and you will at the end...
The degree to which the story was believable now. This could be happening right now and would you realize it was happening...
How much advanced planning had been done and would justice be served...
Roy's entry into the compound but it was one among many favorite scenes
The beginning of the story is pretty complicated and takes some concentration to keep all the pieces together, but don't be thrown off the story is absolutely gripping.
The story is interesting and thought provoking even if some of the technology it discusses has turned out different. The core theme of handling extraterrestrial life encounter if fascinating.
How it forces you to think about how would you choose to act based on what you are learning as you go through the story. Would you make the same choices.
No, but this performance was excellent
Man's First Contact - Are you ready
Engrossing story, with a fascinating hook
The way the author weaves characters/aspects into the story to provide different points of view and conflict within the main character.
No, but I would listen to him again.
The climactic scene where the JC character earns his place.
I want to read more. The setup is fascinating.
