    When struggling riverboat captain Abner Marsh receives an offer of partnership from a wealthy aristocrat, he suspects something’s amiss. But when he meets the hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York, he is certain. For York doesn’t care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh’s dilapidated fleet. Nor does he care that he won’t earn back his investment in a decade. York has his own reasons for wanting to traverse the powerful Mississippi. And they are to be none of Marsh’s concern - no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious his actions may prove.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Fevre Dream the most enjoyable?

    I had no idea if I would like this story but since I loved the author I took a chance and the narrator was new to me and I just loved this! He is one of the best narrators I have ever listened to and I sincerely hope he does many many more, I will buy them for certain. This story line was so full of unexpected twists and turns it just kept getting better. I thought it would be a typical vampire story but it certainly is not and even the ending seemed predictible and it was not, if this story should turn into a series like The Game of Thrones series I would be hooked yet again. Well done!! Marvelous narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It kept surprising me over and over again.


    What does Ron Donachie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is one of the best narrators I have ever listened to. He must do more books, his voice is easy on ears and his character changes are well done and believable and I would listen to his narrations again and again. I look forward to many many more years of enjoying his voices.


    If you could take any character from Fevre Dream out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Julien if you are in to blood and Captn Marsh if your are in to booze and sour Billy for cannabalism. I connected with all of them, well done!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Offer more books with Ron Donachie's voice for George RR Martin's publications, they are a match made in heaven.

    Would you listen to Favorite Science Fiction Stories again? Why?

    No, I would like to read them but the narrators weren't very engaging. Very robotic


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Favorite Science Fiction Stories?

    The stories were great, I enjoyed the unexpected twists and turns.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narrators were not engaging. I continued to listen because the stories lines were really interesting but it was hard to listen through some of the narrations.
