I just could not get into it enough to keep me listening. After about 30 minutes I moved on.
A well crafted yarn with well developed characters, what more can you ask for?
The dog was so well written. If you own dogs and more specifically shepherds it is clear that Crais either also does or really did his homework. He really brought both the main characters alive for me and I didn't want the book to end. I hope he writes a new adventure for this team.
Yes buy this if you like animals and detective yarns.
Highly formulaic but with characters that are unrealistic and 2 dimensional. This will probably be the first time I look for a refund.
Sure but I would warn them that it is overly verbose. It could have been half as long and told the same story adequately.
Predictable x 2
JFK, nobody is really trying to figure it out properly but here is a pretty good love story packaged around it.
A good read but a little too fat around the edges but that is Stephen isn't it?
People who believe that Aliens will arrive speaking English. I'm not one of them.
People of faith are automatically crazy. As already mentioned Aliens arrive speaking English.
disappoinment amd annoyance, if I had known what it was really about I could have avoided wasting my money.
One of the best audio books I have listened to, more so for the story than for the delivery of it.
Colossus / the Forbin Project, an older Sci-Fi Movie with tangential but certainly not identical themes.
His delivery is very good although as with every audio book I hear, I find myself craving the delivery of audio theater with individual actors/actresses for the roles within the story. I would pay the premium that would require. I think it is inevitable as the audio book juggernaut continues to grow that this medium will begin to go that way and can only benefit from it.
This book is for people male and female, who have an understanding of technology. If you don't have some grasp of how to turn on your computer then you should not buy this book. Conversely for those who's lives are intertwined with computers and networks, this book is awesome in its grasp of the possible and contemporary. Every civilization has it's apex and this book describes a plausible end to ours and a new beginning (need to read Freedom as well to appreciate what I am saying).
