    What would have made The Frozen Sky better?

    Started strong and weakened from there


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeff Carlson again?

    As a last resort only


    How could the performance have been better?

    It seems like a continous whine - the passion one expected never came through


    What character would you cut from The Frozen Sky?

    All of them


    Any additional comments?

    Good premise destroyed by a weak story

    "One of the best long-running SF series in existence" (Publishers Weekly) continues with the second novel in a brand-new Foreigner sequence. The civil war among the alien Atevi has ended. Tabini-aiji, powerful ruler of the Western Association, along with Cajeiri, his son and heir, has returned to the Bujavid, his seat of power. But factions that remain loyal to the opposition are still present, and the danger these rebels pose is far from over.

    Would you try another book from C. J. Cherryh and/or Daniel Thomas May?

    While this book is not the strongest entry in the series I will continue to read more books by this author.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The ending was very abrupt. I felt like I was in the middle of the story and found out several pages were missing.


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Thomas May’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The preformance was on par with his usual high quality.


    Do you think Deceiver needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The deciever is a link in a series and I would feel betrayed if there wasn't more to tie up the dangling threads of the story lines.


    Any additional comments?

    Deciever was a mild disappointment for me. The storyline dragged a little and the ending was so abrupt that I was in disbelief when the audible credits came on. If it hadn't been in the middle of the series I would not reccommend it. The poor ending colored the rest of the book for me.

    Story
    (412)

    The eagerly awaited new audiobook from the Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting, Daily Show-anchoring Jon Stewart - the man behind the megaseller America (The Book). Where do we come from? Who created us? Why are we here? These questions have puzzled us since the dawn of time, but when it became apparent to Jon Stewart and the writers of The Daily Show that the world was about to end, they embarked on a massive mission to write a book that summed up the human race.

    John says: "Stick to TV"
    "Don't bother"
    Overall

    This book was 26 minutes too long. I expected more but couldn't even make it through the first chapter. It is a terrible disappointment.
