What a horrible production of a great book. The sound control is non existant, you have to turn the volume way up to hear them wispering, then some terrible excuse for space music blast your eardrums. Like the sound track from Dr Who run amok. Audible should pay you to down load this, ever if they put it on the free for members list it is over priced. Wow, I never thought I would write a bad review of an Asimov book, but it is not the book I am panning, it is the worst production of one I have ever heard.
If you read Ruthless, book one of the series, then you have already read this one. It is just a sad rehash, same plotline, same characters (ok, they are supposed to be the next generation, but they are just carbon copies), same subplots, same result. Save your money and just reread Ruthless.
This was a fairly interesting book, good action and narration, but increasingly it seemed like Weber was painting himself into a corner. I was very interested on how he was going to get out of it, when boom, he pulls a duex ex machina ending. Terrible way to end what what have been a good book. Did he just get bored with the book, and so , ok, its over, I cannot figure out how to end this book well anyway. Very Very disappointing.
