The grand finale of the Hyperion Cantos! Well written, gut wrenching and ends well. I'm sad to see the series end, but.... That's life, right? I'll give it a year or two and then re-listen to the entire cantos again.
In a word. Awesome. The story kept me trapped at the edge of my seat, anxiously waiting to find out what happens next. The setting was well devised - a plausible view of some distant future. The narrator - Perfect. Five Stars. Buy it.
The book was a good listen. Less on tactics, etc... and more on Presidential Gossip.
Okay... The story is interesting thus far, but the Narrator is hard to get used to. He reminds me of that flat, unemotional robot voice that used to read text to you on those first generation Mac computers. I don't know...... How long... I can last...
In a word - AMAZING. Ayn Rand is on the money and scarily enough it seems to be happening today. Very timely reading for a book written in the 50s. Scott Brick narrated the book perfectly. I never tired of his voice, and this was a LONG audiobook.
Okay. I follow Star Wars and have read most of the novels in the SW Universe. The book was palatable because a) it continues to develop the story line and b) once again my favorite characters were brought to life by a *great* narrator. However, this series in general is beginning to become predictable. A couple more Jedi go nuts and Luke/Ben visit one more world and learn one more of Jacen's force abilities. *Yawn* The book could have been longer and could have developed the story line deeper. I also think that suddenly fabricating a new Sith race is.... kind of shallow. ( As was done by releasing "Lost Tribe of the Sith: Precipice" in May 2009.)
