I believe that those with a deep interest and knowledge of science, particularly biology and astronomy, may enjoy the fictitious exploration of the planet.
This book has a very loose plot; the central point of the book was in trying to understand, scientifically, a very unusual planet and its side-effects. There is just as much written about the history and controversy, in textbook format, as there is any progression of time within the novel. This may be interesting to some, but did not fare well for the storyline, in my opinion.
All characters performed by Alessandro Juliani were great. His distinct voices and expression fit the characters almost perfectly. I would consider the discovery of this talented narrator as the highlight of this audiobook.
I would say that they all serve a purpose, though only the main character has enough depth and development over the course of the novel.
This book is full of imagination, however it does not use the imagined world for a very interesting plot or storyline. I felt more like the book was about history and research than it was about progression of characters and of containing any message.
