If you loved the Mistborn Trilogy, then this is a must read (listen) for you. Enter into a familiar, but different world, and enjoy a hint of the magical world you fell in love with. This is not on-par with the original three books, but kind of a guilty jaunt into what came after. I would liken this more to a serial novel than to a primary work, but it was fun nonetheless.
Michael Kramer did a wonderful job, as always. It's worth the listen just to hear him tell it. By far one of my favorite readers!
I enjoyed the continuation of what has become an interesting story with an interesting protagonist. If you liked the first four Star Force books, you won't be disappointed.
The plot twist that comes in Book 5.
Riggs, of course, but Marvin runs a close second.
I will be continuing onto the next books.
Probably not. Although I "eventually" enjoyed the story, I found the gimmick of this story annoying after a time. Wil did an 'okay' job, but just.
Use a professional audio performance artist. Wil was monotone the whole way through and all characters sounded the same. It was if he was reading aloud, not creating a performance.
I "almost" gave up on this story, but was somewhat of a captured audience, as I was listening to it during travel. It gets better about half-way through and by the end I had enjoyed it, or at least needed to know how it ended, but not enough to ever want to read or do it again, like I will a truly "good" book. Quite frankly, I don't get why so many geek-out on this book; the gimmick was fun at first, but quickly became annoying -- too much gimmick and not enough plot. I also don't like dystopias that are completely unrealistic, nor first-person narration.
Probably, but not this series.
She did okay. My "performance" issues are with the directors of the audiobook, but this may be misplaced, it may be that Weber, or his publisher is to blame. Someone made some very bad decisions in how this book/listen was assembled, with regard to the timeline. I quit about chapter 8, I couldn't take any more. I do not want to listen to the same EXACT parts of the story from the last book and the book before it. Stupid.
There are some SERIOUS time dependencies issues. It's as if chapters from 2 to 3 books ago, that were cut, were added back into a new book. This book actually starts out in a timeline BEFORE the book before the book before this one. Confused? You will be. It is as if previously deleted (and bad) chapters were cut, and reassembled. I'm done.
After 12 books, they started pronouncing Manticoran "correctly." Honor makes a cameo, and the story is only minor characters and stories loosely held together.
Include Honor. More on the treecats.
After 12 books, she finally started pronouncing Manticoran "correctly." After hearing it pronounced incorrectly for 12 books, hearing it correctly was distracting and annoying.
I like the Manticoran universe. I think it interesting and full of opportunities, that Weber then fails to explore.
Very little action in this book. Mostly explanations to things you've already figured out, or don't need an explanation for. Very little of the story moves forward and little new comes into play. Very disappointed.
Yes. Overall I very much like his characters.
Yes. She does a great job.
Almost all of them. Cardboard as they are.
I wish I had quit on the last book...
The story was very engaging. Never got boring or dull as was the first half of Book 7.
I was very excited upon (redacted) at the end when (redacted) (redacted) (redacted)... You'll just have to listen to the story...
Great ending that leaves you wanting Book 9.
Get rid of the first half of the book.
The first HALF of this story was complete fluff. Only one important point was made, besides that, it can be summarized in two sentences, but I won't spoil it for you, please, feel my pain.
Yes, but I will have to wait many years. This epic spanned a great many years of my life, it was a story worthy of waiting, of thought. Listening to the entire series from front to back will have to come when I have the time to devote to it, and perhaps I've forgotten a thing or two about it.
The ending. A fitting end and great tribute by Sanderson to Jordan, for all of us. As it ended, I couldn't stop grinning, but I did not want it to be finally complete. Tear.
Absolute giants in the performance of audiobooks. It was great listening to them back and forth between chapters, depending on if the main theme of the chapter involved a female voice (Kate) or was male voice (Kramer). Whoever decided to break up the story this way was a genius.
I'm am perpetually irritated by this question by Audible. No, it is TOO long to listen to in one sitting, quit asking this stupid question.
Sanderson did an excellent job of bringing Jordan's magnificence to fruition. We will all be forever in his debt for finishing the vision Jordan created and captured our imaginations with. Thank you Sanderson. Godspeed Jordan.
Stupid question Audible. But, if you are a fan of Peter F. Hamilton, you will not be disappointed with another sci-fi suspense story that combines the mystery and intrigue of a detective story and the often novel but always interesting sci-fi themes that together form a tantalizing space-epic whodunit. Satisfying ending.
Angela Tramelo, but I can't tell you why without giving too much away.
Toby did a great job, as always. He is certainly up in my top five favorite performers. In each series there is always one that comes off as core to the performance, for me, in this series, it was the pragmatic Detective Sidney Hurst. I love the way he says, "okay."
Another stupid question, Audible: No way, this book is over one and half days long; 36.5 hours is too long to sit for one reading... But, if the question is less literal, than yes, I would enjoy going from start to finish in one act of entertainment.
I look forward to Peter's next book, and hope Toby is there to perform it.
This story was very disappointing, certainly not worthy of Terry Brook’s stature. The characters were weak (weak characters and weekly developed as weak characters), the dialog was horrible, and the plot was, well… if you’ve ever read a Shannara novel before, you can probably guess the theme. I was especially disappointing at how inept the Druids were written to be. I will not move forward on this series. Lastly, and certainly not least, the narrator was the worst I’ve ever sat through; she sounded like an old English school mum, and her voice was only made worse when she tried to disguise it to voice other characters. I didn’t have a will-not-listen-to list before her.
The characters were very poorly developed, weak, and unable to complete a salient conversation.
Absolutely not. Never again will I sit through a reading of hers. Sorry, her voice just graded on me, the accent, made worse when she tried to disguise her voice for other characters.
All of them. Not worthy of a Terry Brooks book.
Very disappointed. In so many ways...
