I have checked every time I log on to this site for a new book from Lois and when i saw that it had finally happened I bought it right away. I agree with another review that it wasn't as gripping as some of her stories have been but it is still a wonderful story. The surprise at the end was totally unexpected and I being a guy will admit that I got chocked up and shed a few tears. I hope that Lois doesn't make us wait another 9 year for the next story. If you are new to this series I agree with others Start with Shards Of Honor or Warriors Apr, You will be sucked in and will never escape Lois attraction,
First off let me say this was greatly enjoyable, I listened to it while I was working and I would imagine a family sitting around the radio, the kids laying on the floor with their heads proped on their hands with maybe a bowl of popcorn in front of them. The stories took me out of my head and gave me great pleasure.
I would have rated this 5 stars but there are two Major errors, The book is listed as running for 20 or so hours but there are two stories repeted.
One is a story about a lifelike little doll that a little girl and mother buy in a shop and the other is people living under ground to excape the radiation from world war 3 and they are careful about genetic mutation and a perfect woman falls in love with a geneticly flawed man.
I dont know what they were repeted but it caused me confusion when the first one repeted and I thought somehow my played had somehow gone in to shuffle mode.
Other then that one error I honestly think it is a wonder audio book and any lovers of old radio drama will love it,
Enjoyable book. If you arent hooked by the first chapter then you have something wrong with you.
Z get into his usally trouble but works it out with just a few looming terrifing things coming:)
I was just searching the book lists when I came across the title. When I read the synopis and the very first paragraph took me in and I had to buy this book. I wasnt disappointed and have told friends about it. You will laugh out loud at times.
I am eagerly awaiting another book by the author when ever it appears
What happens in a world where superheros live and the living dead have taken over the world. A Little slow at times but a wonderful listen. I bought about a month ago and have listened to it twice now. I have recommended it to several friends and recommend you try it
Phil Foglio has always been a great artist and the story he and his wife create is Wonderful, If you are a follower of girl genius comic then this is a must have. It follows the first three volume of his series but add wonderful details that he would never be able to give in his comics.
If you are a new reader and have discovered his book I recommend you get this and be prepared to enjoy a good listen.
