I have been a fan of this author for awhile. But, I found that this book bogged down too much with the same repeatitive thoughts of the characters. I won't say the dialogue as I don't want to be a spoilsport. I listened to this while driving on a long trip and after awhile, I was trying to fast forward through to get to the end. Next time if I listen to this author again, I will only obtain the abridged version. The narrator was easy to listen to otherwise.
I have already listened to this book numerous times. I found the characters very interesting. I found the author equal to Anne McCaffery as a creator of an alternate world.
I liked Meg's innocence. I liked Simon for his ability to learn and develop. I liked Tess for her endurance with creatures unlike herself. I liked jester for his comic relief, and Jake for the same reason. Mr. Eurobus was informative and likable.
I travel long distances. This story helped me cover many miles. I wish the next book was coming earlier than march.
I slogged through this book only to be very disappointed at the end. I kept hoping that the author would lead me to an ending that would show redemption of the main antagonists. It didn't. If you, like myself are looking for a book that lets the good guy win, this is not the book for you; as I found that it wasn't for me.
