I would recommend this story to anyone who loves to read. I have read the series in book form and this is the first step into a world of wonder and sweeps you from your mundane existence.
The characters ore so real that you will learn to love them all.
Moria is a witch to be reckoned with
In terms of honesty i must admit that this author is one of the best story tellers I have ever read. There are several times that I laughed so hard I literally hurt my ribs.
Having read the book the day before and then listening to it on Audible it was almost like reading a different book. The reason is the things I see in my mind are different from the things the reader draws for me to see! It is worth more that the small sum charged.
Totally freaking awesome.
Romeo and Juliet! It is a love story for the ages only it has a happy ending.
This is a bit of a spoiler, but Nell's reveal.
My wife went to the ER and they could not decide what tests to run for a long time. Listening to this book was the best thing in the world to help me keep it together. I have listened to several of the these books and I love them.
I spent years driving a company truck doing electrical work in an area the size of Rhode Island. I would listen to old favorite books. It was great because it was almost like having a brand new book. I always found new nuances, ways to see a great book in a new way. I loved listening to old friends and getting to know them better. For someone who likes a lot of different Genres to say that I have found a new favorite author is a major statement. If you do not believe me then read my reviews about Debora Geary on Amazon dot com. I have all of this author's audible books and am agitating for the rest. These are well worth the credits it takes to buy them, and frankly I WANT THEM NOW!
This book rates in the top ten I have listened to.
To share that would be a spoiler because there were several that really stood out!
I laughed for hours.
I had read this book when it first hit the library and enjoyed it. I had forgot about it over the years and this was read well enough it like reading a new book!
When the secret is revealed to Charlie's friends.
The man made each character come alive. That is hard to do for more than four characters.
Yes, I did listen to it in one sitting!
Well worth the time and money!
I have read this book four times and the afterwords have always been gut wrenching. Listening to the book as always gave me new perspective about the story. However the five epilogs, were even more of a world tilting experience. This woman is a master story teller. There was a death (not Miles) in this book that was almost as big a loss as if the character was a for real friend I have known for many years. I found myself on the brink of tears from grief as real as any I have ever felt. This is the result of a Master of her craft.
Thank you Lois for such awesome work and for sharing it with us!
Lord Miles, followed by Roic
Yes I never put it down.
Well worth the money!
Not better but just as good because I can listen will driving for hours as my life requires.
I had read this books years ago but lent out my copy and the chance to revisit this story was a pure delight!
Sharon and Steve are masters at storytelling! I have been reading their books for many years and the News Audible was bring out their bact list was great Good News.
I am a Coast Guardsman. I spent a lot of time underway and I could empathize with the competent personnel in the book. Back in the post Viet Nam era military we had some of the same problems. They were overcome by less intense methods but in combat I could see the lead character being just this way.
The everyday problems of daily living in space were carefully considered and delt with.
I read the book before I listened to it. I usually do this because my mind builds a different world in my mind. This gives the book a whole new flavor.
I did listen in a single setting. I travel a lot.
The author did a rewrite that either eliminated several of the original characters and emasculated the personalities of those that remained. Fifty years has made some changes culture but has not changed Human Nature in the way people are going to act.
Cast in Courtlight
The author does not understand those people who live alone or in really small communities in the wilderness or frontier! I would have sent the book for a total rewrite.
I have nothing against sex but there was just too much almost and angst about the heroine getting laid to make for a good read.
I read medicine bottle labels in the restroom if there is nothing else so for me to gat turned off on this one it was way over the top.
Disappointed with supposed tech levels described for diving in space. I am an experienced wreck diver with a PADI Divemaster rating and the description for diving a wreck jibs with scuba tech of the 1970's
