Coming of age story with an excellent reader. A reflective walk though of the SF genre pre-1980 by way of the characters reading habits and book club. In no way SF and only a marginal fantasy.
So implausible that each turn made it more far fetched. Thrilled that it was done at the end. Premise held merit.
A far reaching dystopia that keeps ones interest throughout. A dark story line that will continue to provide material on many levels. When is the next book expected.
2/3 of the story was interesting 1/3 of the story seemed liked a bad trip on pharmacueticals. Exchanging bodily fluids contaning nanoparticle message bots via orgies and then the inclusion of fluorescent condoms in the ceremony was a what moment for me. The Fairy tales seemed a bit endless and unbearable.
Didnt take long to get hooked. OSC more please! Multiple readers work to perfection. Story line has so much potential.
Tired story line, why did I listen I keep asking myself. I guess the first 3 in the series kept me in up to this point but never again.
I have enjoyed this narrator in the past but in this book his cadence and irregular volume made listening unbearable. Is the story any good, who knows. I could not listen after 30 minutes.
Loved the first, liked the second. I find the third barely tolerable. Did I really pay for this, what was I thinking. Winded, repetitive, became so contrived and I found the story to fall apart.
