Just finished listening to the Dreaming Void, and all I can say is wow. I loved it. This is my second "space opera" listen, with Saga of the Seven Suns the first, and The Dreaming Void is heads and tales better. If this is what the future holds for the Human race, can I be frozen to the middle of the 3rd millennia.
Although I loved this book, I have a few words of warning to my fellow listener.
1. It starts out slow, and is sort of difficult to follow at first, but towards the end things become much clearer.
2. There is a lot of fictional history that is referenced in the book, and not much was explained (as of the end of the 1st book)
3. The narrator isn't the best in the world, and there are pauses that seem out of place, but he doesn't take anything away from the book.
4. As others have pointed out, yes there is sex and swearing in the book, but it is far from vulgar or obscene, and neither is overused. I would go as far as saying it adds a unique touch to the book. But if the words "c--k", and "f--k" bother you, or you are going to listen with a younger child, I would look elsewhere.
These things do not distract from the book at all. If your on the fence, take a trip to the future with The Dreaming Void, you will not be disappointed.
