Conceptually strong, very interesting premise, and the story takes some interesting turns. Sadly, the writer just isn't up to all of that coolness. Every large dialog exchange is poorly written and painful to listen too. The production and writing of this book felt very rushed.
Rewrite all of the dialog sections.
Yes, but only because I've listened to him do some other great stuff.
Yes, because it would deal with dialog transitions much more smoothly.
This could have been a great book. Sadly I cannot recommend it unless the concept is enough to carry you through to the end.
Out of mythology
So many cool scenes, but not one that stole the show.
Another strong performance by Michael F. Stevens. His return to the Long Earth was well done.
I couldn't stop listening, I devoured this book as quickly as life would allow.
The exploration of the varied denizens of the Long Earth kept the Long War engaging all the way through. Everything made a kind of sense, from an alien perspective.
An unusual alien, and a strong read by Wil Wheaton.
Ralph the Dog.
Several scenes amused me quite a bit, I even laughed a couple times.
The performance carried this book.
Seeing how the author weaved the original story with dreadfuls.
Something Dreadful This Way Comes
The prequel was better!
The performer contributes a lot to this book, giving voice to the apparitions which help the protagonist solve the problem helped this book a lot.
I haven't listened to Oliver Wyman before, but I will look for him in the future.
One head, many answers.
It felt like a TV series pilot.
Jim Butcher's continuing story-line as told by James Marsters.
Any other of Jim Butcher's Book
James brings a wonderful performance and great continuity to the stories.
