I love Star Trek - but this is far from the classic imaginative and adventurous stories I like -
If I knew it was a super cheesy romance I would not have bought it.
"....young lovers in the jungle...." !!! lol
.... the sound quality is disappointing as well.
Roy is an incredible reader. The story is so well built - the characters are expressed from the inside out - incredible depth - creating incredible visuals for me. Wow.
My god he has endurance. Excellent voice. Perfect for this genre. I think it would be hard to have to come up with the voices for all the characters, - some of the accents (East Indian, French, pirate etc) were a bit too cliche'. But I'll take this over boring reading any day. I understand it may be very hard to follow without variation in the characters voices as the story is rich and deep, and so are the characters.
Said Ponter, said Adicore, said Ponter, said Adicore.. and the simplest of language.
Either act the reading or read it please! The laid back tone of the reader during intense moments helps make the already simple and barely descriptive writing even less believable. The sudden acting in a few places and not others is frustrating.
The characters are simple, plastic, so surface, no depth of human experience expressed here.
Maybe its because I just finished the Game of Thrones series, searingly written, and masterfully read.
It was painful enough that I only got 1.5 hours through - maybe it became incredible and rich but I couldn't stand it any longer.
I can't imagine a better reader for this story - Kate Reading was exemplary. The story is so well written and paints not only an excellent visual picture, but an auditory and sensory story as well - I will be looking for more books by Lois McMaster Bujold.I enjoyed the experience from beginning to end.
I would also add that the audio quality is very good -
Imaginative, but I am not drawn to disturbed gore, so I only got through the first 14 min. It may have gotten better as it developed, but Im not putting myself through that.Very imaginative though.
