Haldeman has a great track record writing SciFi. Starbound only enhances his reputation. One of the most interesting and entertaining characteristics of this book is the use of multiple narrators. The integration of the characters, text, and narrators is so well done this might qualify as a dramatization. The only reason it could not qualify as a dramatization is the narrators do not assume different roles exclusively. Still, the way the author has woven the use of the multiple narrators into the fabric of the story is commendable and makes this one of the best books I have listened to in this genre.
another excellent mystery by Mr Brookmyre. twists and turns to the end. Ms Maclean made you feel like you were in Scotland.
superbly written wonderfully told. this is what detective story's are supposed to be. Rebus sets the standard
the narrator makes the story. he makes you feel like you are in Scotland.
from the opening chapter this book grabs your attention and never let's go. superbly performed and very well written you will enjoy every minute of this text.
Very realistic. the authors did an excellent job presenting very authentic people. the story keeps your attention throughout.
LA Plante knows how to write murder mysteries. They hold your attention until the last sentence of the last paragraph. Hicks makes the story come alive. She makes it authentic.
There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe how great this book is
Yes, it is very well written. This book blends SciFi with mystery/thriller in a way that makes the story entirely plausible while holding your attention and engaging you in the story. It keeps you on your toes by taking you to the very edge in multiple dangerous situation.

Ken. Ken is a geek who is very sociable yet extremely smart.
NSA in the next 10 years.
If you like SciFi and you like thrillers, listen to this book. I hope Jeff writes another one.
Absolutely. The actors bring a dimension to this performance that cannot exist in the print version.
It reminded me of Tolkien's books. The key characters pass into an alternate dimension where they carry out their quest.
James McAvoy gives an outstanding performance. He is so believable.
Never read the print edition.
MacLean was the best thing about this story. Her accent make you feel like you are on the scene. She is perfect for this book; perfect for a great many books.
First time listener but it won't be the last. I would like to see her read many, many more books.
It turned out that way; not a feeling I had going in. But, MacLean makes you want to keep going.
Story starts slow. I was 4 hours in before I became caught up in the action. Stick with it and you will enjoy the listen.
