A cerebral journey that propels you into an immersive story of what it is to be human in a futuristic world and the inherent desire to survive in a foriegn and empty unwelcoming environment that is space. Can be slow at times with drawing out the mundane.
I really enjoy the intelligent word play and imaginitive world painted by the author's visionary universe. He really displays a high level of adeptness to interwine scientific concepts into his story and it comes across very plausible and non Star Trek hokiness. This seperates science fiction writers from fantasy authors, the demand of a high level of science acumen to explain the story, rather writing your way out of a predicament through pulling a solution from the air like the world of wizards and dragons.
His mastery of voices and inflection is able to convey the primal feelings or cognitive thoughts of the characters in a diverse and immersive way.
Dreams Among The Stars
I really love this book and to me the author has positioned himself in the class of Fredrick Pohl and Frank Herbert in science fiction.
It was a good booked, yet over hyped. It is a story of siblings in a quaint town and how they deal with issues of an adult world.
Meanders a lot but with no subplots, very simplistic in its linear flow. Narrator was top notch, added substance to the main character with her true southern dialect.
Maybe if they used different characters.
Writing overall is not bad and plot meanders or drawn out unnecessarily.
Nothing really stood out.
Not to buy any sequel.
I like a strong herion, but this character is over the top stubborn that I wish a zombie would bite her head off. Her in your face bravado would never have gotten her very far in a post apocalyptic society. Her mouthiness would have gotten her killed by her tribe. Just not likeable.
That it was an improvement from the original. I did not care for the original because it was full of useless banter with unessential characters.I almost was not going to get the second book but felt compelled to continue the story. The book was still long but the action was better, and the conversations was tied to the story while the first book did not do a good job in regards to tying the pointless conversations into the storyline.
My favorite character was Amy's father.
He seems to have gotten better with his diversification and repertoire of voices.
Hope the next book continues with improvements.
What a laborious listen, absolutely painful and dry. Makes me question the legitimacy of the 5 star reviews. BORING. Filled with frivolous banter among nonessential characters and 5 of the 30 hours of listen is worthwhile. Little house On The Prairie combined with a vampire story it feels like. It has taken me almost two months of trying to finish this thing.Scott brick reads well, average writing, but plot is riddled with filler characters like a gaudy overdone Christmas tree filled with tacky ornaments.
Cut out the crap and filler banter or ho him writing. I bought a horror book I thought and not Little House On The Prairie. Too many filler characters.
Breakout of Zero.
Only when there was action or relevant dialogue pertaining to the actual plot.
I want my credit back.
