    Death awaits the curious! Out along the rim of the galaxy hangs a loose configuration of some 60 stars known as the Faustian Chain. This whorl of sparkling suns is rich in planets and occupies an irregular volume of space some 20 light years in diameter. From an external viewpoint, the Chain presents a colorful display of plasma-streams, luminous nebulae and sparkling pinpoints of light.

    Story
    What does Mirron Willis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm pretty sure I could have done a better job, but hopefully he did better when he recorded the other books of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this purely to see if I'd be interested in this story, and, as the headline says, I'm easily entertained, so I will be giving the series a chance. A reviewer of Mech 1 said that it needed a prologue, well this is it. The story, while not the best I've ever listened to - even just in this catagory - is still good enough for cheap enough that I feel this is a good introduction to a series.I'd be willing to give a chance to. My only real complaint is the narrator who sounds like he phoned in the performance, that is to say that it was very robotic and took some getting used to. More objectively the ratings should be:Overall: 4 starsPerformance: 3 starsStory: 4 starsbut I bumped my rating with hopes that the problems I had with this first installment might not be present in the full length novels, and, as previously stated, I am easily entertained.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    Overall

    This is a very good story, one that everyone should read or listen to at least once, but understand this, this story is unlikely to be something you ever want to experience twice; indeed, finishing it once was hard enough. I say this because this is a very powerful story, with many character deaths, and only rarely are those who die people you won't like, many of them will have you either angry at the author, in tears, or both. There are some very damaged people in this story, not least of whom is the main character.

    This story is not pretty, it's not something young children should be exposed to. They'll either be too young to really appreciate what's going on, or they'll be tramatized, as, in all likelyhood, will you be. The story should be okay for anyone from there teens on, but do not begin lightly what cannot end happily. This isn't a fairy tale, it's a post apocaliptic tale on some of the worst, and best, humanity has to offer.
