This is one of the most powerful short stories that I have ever read. Brandon Sanderson was already one of my favorite authors, but this story blew even me away.
Some of the things that were interesting to me:
The hints of the main character's back story.
The exploration of multiple personalities in one person.
The interaction between faith and science.
The last one of these is the most fascination to me. As a man of faith myself I have read books that tackle the seeming discrepancy between science and faith, but none which do it so powerfully.
And, since this book is free, You should definitely get it.
It will not be a waste of your time.
I heard that Jim Butcher wrote this book after he boasted that he could write anything and someone dared him to write a book that mixed Pokemon and Rome.
I think that Jim won the dare. Awesome book.
The Change novels as a whole have been an idea that has fascinated me since the first time I stumbled across them while looking for a good new series. A Meeting at Corvallis is good end to first trilogy of the series. I was left satisfied with the story, and looking forward to what would come later.
What I like most about this series is that it is what would have happened if Tolkien had written a post apocalyptic book.
This is a great story set in the Mistborn world that takes all of the qualities of that series and places them in a Industrializing world with guns and trains and electricity. Brandon Sanderson and outdone himself again. The only complaint that I have about this book is the fact that it is so short. I listened to it in less then two days of casual listening and was thirsty for more.
Another thing that I liked about this was that it reminded me of a Sherlock Holmes story, but with a Sanderson twist.
I like, and I want more!
The headline for this review says it all. This is the best book I have read since Tolkien at age 12, and that says a lot.
You should definitely read it.
Protectors war is the second in the series by S. M. Stirling and it continues the great story that Dies the Fire began. 5 stars to Performance, and 4 to story, simply because it is a little different then what I usually read and I found a few parts to be a little strange. But 5 overall stars because it is a great book that I would highly recommend.
I greatly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fantasy or sifi book. The narration is tremendous, as all of Kate Reading's works are, and the story is intriguing and original. Kudos to both! This is a must read if I have ever read one. So you should definitely read it.... :)
Looking Backwards is a classic of the late 19th and early 20th centuries which contains some of the early ideas of what would become the socialist movement. It is a Utopian novel in which a man form the 18th century is transported to the 21st. I think it is a fascinating picture into the 18th century mindset of what a perfect culture society could be.
To me this is not a book about what 'should' be, but instead it is about what 'could have been.'
The narration is crisp, if a bit fast passed, though to me this fits.
Overall I liked this version of the book and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting glimpse into a possible version of our world today as dreamed up by a 18th century author.
When I got this audio book i was expecting it to be sort of boring. However I was happily disappointed. The book is well written and interesting and it help my attention through the entire thing. I was also impressed with the narrators ability to pronounce the words and really bring the history of the English language to life. Thank you audible for an amazing listen!
If you have the time to listen to this long audio book then I very highly recommend it. This is a series which is well worth your time. It is well written, has a very interesting plot and is narrated superbly. As i said, if you like long audio books, you should definitely get this one.
