Move along the plot and make it seem less like a female soap opera fantasy in space.
Her voice reminds me of every arrogant, swarmy socialite elitist I've ever met. Rubbed me the wrong way.
I didn't finish it.
The story moved too slow. I couldn't finish it. I usually give an audio book a couple of hours to grab me, but this one was horrible compared to Pandora's Star, which was superb.
He was fine
Believe it or not, I actually looked forward to a 12 hour drive across Texas so I could listen to this book. It is that good. The vision of the future is bright, but the undercurrent is dark. Terrorists, alien plots, corporate arrogance, wealthy 'quasi-nobles' playing with the future of billions...romance, sex, military action. The author evokes images in your mind in an effective way and the British accented narrator does a good job. One of my favorite audio books ever.
The narration is very good. This is classic hard science fiction that is totally believable. Some characters die and it's like 5-6 of the finest Star Trek episodes intertwining and then finally coming together in a hard core military style. It has spy thriller, romance novel, military science fiction, weird aliens, hookers and a little too much detail on the sex scenes. I don't really care to read Sci Fi for the sex scenes. But nothing can deter from the 5 star review. The end dragged out a bit, but it was worth it.
