This is my first book by this author and it would take a lot to do another one of these.
I've never seen an action book turned into something so BORING.
The author needs to work on his characters banter it seems to always degrade into teenage level potty or sexual jokes. Not sure what the authors age is, but this could use a little work. Otherwise the plot and details are original and well constructed.
I've done narration and I can't do it well, but even I have more cadence than this guy. His voices are okay and sometimes he gets in the grove. But mostly it's one word at a time, VERY VERY awkward.
Not really my thing, all ground force battles. It doesn't make a lot of sense to be a space faring civilization and you take cities by long ground battles. Yes, some ground force stuff makes sense, but they never say why they just don't nuke the enemy or why the enemy doesn't just nuke them.
I like the story, I like the narration.
However, the book just stops leaving you literally on the edge of an abyss.
The next book Judas Unchained picks up the story without any background or setup.
You cant read Judas Unchained without Pandora Star, in a normal series there is some rehash this has nothing.
It???s like the giant novel was cut in half with little regard for the reader.
I???m still reading Judas Unchained (the second half) but I hope it ends at a point that makes some sense.
It may be what the book said but to hear a male actor say a line followed by a different male actor say "he said" followed by a female actor saying a line. Then a male actor saying "she said".
This radio play narration with an added narrator is enough to drive you insane!
I???ve never heard an audio book done so poorly! The book may or may not be any good but the narration is the WORST!
Not part of a real series; more like a bad copy of the original. The names have changed and so has the date, but everything else is the same. If you read Pillars, you're going to find this to be like bad retelling of the same story, or like a made for TV version of the original. Nothing really new in the book.
The stories and the audible presentation of these books is very good.
However be warned that this series just stops. For whatever reason you get pulled in, only to be crashed into a brick wall of “sorry no more audible books”. The Audible series ends but the books continue. This is not very fair if you don’t have the time to visually read the books. Sorry audible fans this is a dead end.
