Not sure why some people think just because they can put F-bombs in books, that they have to put as many as they can.
Perhaps the author's vocabulary is just limited.
What a waste of 1 credit. I want my money back.
Disappointment. Wish book details would list things such as explicit language. Then I wouldn't waste money on books which have to rely on f-bombs and others to get through a story.
There were way too many characters in this book. More than once I had to ask myself "Who is this person?", "Has this character been in the book yet?", "Who is this character?" Overlapping and mixing so many different stories and lives into one story is a good idea, it just didn't work out very well for me in this one.
Yeah. I enjoyed his narration.
Too many to list. I realize not every character is going to be exciting or interesting to everyone, but there were just too many in this one. After getting about 2/3 of the way through this book I started hitting the :30 forward button, to skip past the story lines that seemed like too much filler.
Yeah, as long as they were looking for a book under 3 hours! I normally look for books that run longer but decided to give this one a try. Not amazing, but it was enjoyable.
I don't think any one thing really stood out to me more than another. Being under 3 hours, it almost felt like it was over before it really got very far!
Loved this book!
This was his first performance I listened to, but I thought he fit it perfectly. Jake, Kurt, he did perfectly. Then when he read Jake's Mom's parts I laughed. Other times I cried when he read her parts. Excellent narration.
Laugh? Yes. Cry? Yes. Loved it? Absolutely.
falling for a homeless guy? maybe if there weren't so many panhandlers in my city then this could have been a bit more believable :-/ It started out great and I had high hopes for it. Unfortunately the book didn't deliver.
the performance overall was decent, just a bad story.
I did like the relationship between Jace and his sister.... And the store owner, the older man who gave Jace a job so that he would have less idle time. I liked his part in the story also. The book got so bad I have already forgotten character's names...and I don't care enough about the book to do an internet search to find out their names.
Huge let down.
I have a couple of coworkers who would probably like it. I sure didn't.
I didn't even finish it, only got about half way through it. So if it had any redeeming qualities, maybe there were in the second half.
Dead Sun started off as "another" Star Force book, battling alien races, fighting for survival. I even took a couple weeks off, after getting about halfway through. Then it all turned around! So many unexpected twists in the story. So glad I started it again. Great ending for the series.
it was the same story as the previous books, just with more F bombs. In this one they just go after Thor, but otherwise it is all the same. Nothing special here.
Thor. And Coyote.
stupid. a waste of my time. bleh.
I made it through 6 chapters, hoping it would get better and actually get somewhere. It never did.
Don't know yet. I'll start looking.
the narrator reminded me of a leprechaun. Had a hard time getting in to it.
meh, I don't know about cutting characters.
this was a wasted credit. :-/
Absolutely! This is one of my favorite books ever. I love the idea of looking at Star Trek from the beginning, when the Enterprise crew could have first met. Quinto's narration is exciting and emotional, two things that are not always present in Star Trek of the past.
The part of this book that stands out the most to me involves Spock and his relationship with his mother and the emotion that Quinto gives to the scene when Spock's mother dies.
I laughed over and over with things Kirk, in his cocky attitude, says to others, from the bar to the academy, and also with the way Bones responds to others. Best Star Trek yet.
The different characters, especially Minny! Her sarcasm, her straight forward thoughts and responses, and some of the things she just says. I love the narrator who read the part of Minny!
