The story focuses too much on uninteresting things like when Foord is trying to get to his ship while riding in a beast drawn carriage. The author's focus was just so tiresome! The battle with Faith had too many details and went on and on. I was glad when the book finished.
Foord. The narrator was very good. Too bad he had to read a crummy story.
It doesn't matter.
Yes. The reader. She reads as if there are no commas or periods. Her British accent sounds false and contrived. She really is ruining a good story by her style of reading. And she should slow down her pace.
The Age of Innocent. It has the same feel but the English Aristocrats are looking for money to bail out their debts and to maintain their way of life.
If the reader could slow her pace and read with a better British accent.
It would be perfect for Master Piece Theater!
Overall, the story is very good.
Delightful! Pleasant! Interesting!
Keith Stewart. A solid good soul with no pretense and it proves you do not need things and a lot of money to be content!
No, but would love too!!!! This guy was amazing!!!! I have never heard such acting with ones voice. He brought every character to life and made them so distinct!! He was like the Meryl Strip of reading!!!! Excellent job Mr. Muller!!!!!!!! Superb!!!
Yes but I could not!
I would love to see this book as a movie or even on TV!
The story is very intriguing. An alien race older than humans and not aware of humans, this is a new twist.
Can't think of any similar stories.
His reading is a little wooden.
Very good book but you have to pay attention to the story closely to follow what's going on.
Readers who love super hard core science fiction.
Something science fiction.
Yes. It was interesting but dragged on and on about subtle things about the main character that I just did not find interesting.
If you like hard core sci-fi that's ponderous and has a lot of techno babble this is your book.
It was a little long winded
No. It is too tedious to listen to all at once.
The book is very forward for it's time and it was very interesting how he flipped taboo behavior as normal morals. I love the visual scope of the book for it reminds me of Metropolis.
Stefan Rudnicki. This dude has an awesome voice and to me he is the voice of Orson Scott Card stories.
Always. He was one of my first science fiction writer I started to follow.
Yes. Children of the Mind and Xenocide. This one had a little too many details and not enough action.
I would not make a film of this book.
Mr. Scott, please lay off all of those details that are in your head. It muddles a good story.
A Sweet Story!
His reading was flat and mechanical.
No. It was just pleasant.
The story was excellent. The reader sort of dampen the story.
This book is excellent in that it tells of the events in detail to set you up for Dune Messiah and the rise and fall of Paul M'uab dib. All the problems and challenges he face as the new emperor of the known universe. I have to say I really didn't like Paul in this book but it was so exciting to listen to!!!
