I really don't see how people could say Brother Odd is worse then Forever Odd. Both aren't as good as the original but Forever Odd was horribly boring with characters that are hard to cared about. Brother Odd is much better at least creating a few characters that have some depth to them. I wasn't in love with the sort of sci fi tipping over the supernatural but even so it led to a very interesting monster.
Maybe someone who lives in the future who already can read whatever the rest of the books in this series will be... but even then I wouldn't recommend it.
If they made anything at all happen in the book at all... also they could have finished the book in some way.
I usually don't pick books based on the narrator... but I think I would avoid this one. The voices for characters are either dull and monotone or an annoying stereotypical nerdy voice.
All of them... or none of them... it doesn't really matter none of them had any reasonable personality to them.
I was relatively enjoying myself with this book up until about the midway point.I decide that if the story picks up a bit it will likely be an interesting story... however instead of picking up it just switches back and forth between the two groups of humans and tells the same story from slightly different angles over and over for 6 hours.
Some reviewers are saying this book ends with a cliffhanger... which really isn't true... it simply ends without any rhyme or reason. It is like they ripped a full book arbitrarily in half and decided to just publish that.
This could very likely be the worst book I have gotten from Audible in the 5 years I have been a member.
I really liked Solaris, it is an interesting story with an interesting plot structure. What I really wanted to put this review up for was to ask if anyone else thought it sounded like Snaut was Alessandro doing a Micheal Hogan (Tigh from BSG) impression?
