Enthralling, gripping, brilliant
all of it
All the characters are portrayed brilliantly
This was my first science fiction read, Pandora's Star being Part 1 of the story. Well written story line, paced nicely, all the elements, plots and sub-plots along with the characters brought together perfectly. I would highly recommend this book, and have just bought another, The Void Triology. Really great from start to finish.
The reading by John Lee is utterly brilliant, as usual. I lost count of the different characters, and John Lee gave each one a different distinguishable character and accent. Without being told which character was speaking, you knew.
After many books read by him, I am still in awe of his talent.
A really good story, very well narrated, interesting characters, excellent plots, came together well, plots believably intertwined.
Pandora's Star (Trilogy) same writer and should be listened to in advance of the Dreaming Void. Both the Pandora's Star & Dreaming Void triologies are brilliantly written and delivered.
Wasn't sure at the start as I prefer John Lee, but actually really enjoyed the book/listen overall and would listen to a narration by him again.
Would make me buy more Peter Hamilton.
The Dreaming Void starts off slowly for the first hour or two and I nearly turned it off and deleted it. That would have been a really big mistake. It sets the scene, albeit slowly, for the rest of the book, which is a really good and enjoyable listen. By the end of the two trilogies you really miss the characters, and the stories, and want the whole thing to keep going.
Yes, good storyline, well pieced together, flows well. Brilliant narration by John Lee, as expected.
John puts personalities into each character that you would expect from a good movie. He makes the characters real.
Made me want to keep listening.
This was my first book by Christopher Reich, it will not be my last.
Gripping, entertaining, compelling
Pillars of the Earth & World Without End. Even though the stories and periods they take place are completely different, the way Ken Follet links and intertwines the characters is perfect, and togerher with the individual characters stories, the whole experience is thoroughly encaptulating.
John Lee's narration is simply brilliant. The many voices and accents, and the depth he brings to each character allows you to visualise the book in your mind. It makes for a complete experience. I envy his talent.
Slightly dissapointed with the end, like it was rushed to finish it, I felt that some of the individual stories could have been closed off a little more. However, I would absolutely recommend the book.
This was my first book by James Clavell. Awesome. From the start to finish the book was gripping. John Lee's narration is first class, his voices make the characters real and visual. At 56 hours it was still too short!
