The only thing I can add to this wonderful series of stories is that I want the next one to arrive soon. This was full of so much rich detail and plot twists that I was held in its grasp as the much as any of the synchronized worlds of Omnius.
The story itself was great and sweeping but the narrator diid not know how to pronounce words. I was also bothered by the vocal tics like ending sentences with an upward tone. Very disturbing and it nearly made me drop a very good story.
Absolutely not! it was too annoying and I would make every effort to avoid any such recording.
Yes I would have - the plot was so interesting but the performance was not good.
I would enjoy more from this author but not the narrator.
Gripping riveting fiction
I actually learned to care about the multiple story lines and characters. They pushed me to run the entire series and learn the culmination of their narratives in the Great narrative. It reminded me of my own story and its relationship to the overall Epic that God is telling about existence.
OH my the narrators! They are EVERYTHING! They open the world of other people's experiences to my own. They make the characters into people and the experiences into more than just words. My own head can really do a lot with that but when i am driving or working or need a break; when I am ready for bed.. they urge my mind into relaxation and into very sharp focus. They are the sauce that simmers the writer's work into .... what more can be said? Reality.
Oh Yes it would have been glorious but the anticipation of each session over time was more than rewarding.
to like this you will need to like Sci-Fiction. To enjoy this you will need to love people. To know this you will need to listen.
The story was so careful about the way it treated the character of Lincoln. It may seem absurd with the way it most certainly twists the story but this is a great tale! Lincoln is seen in his iconic best when it comes the truly historical parts and even in the absolute fiction he is Mr. Lincoln!
The main character was my favorite character. He is strong and yet full of pain and longsuffering patience. He aches to help and to encourage. He is exactly the person I always wanted to know as this wonderful president (except the vampires of course!).
I thought the narration was on point 100% of the way.
Please read the book before you see the movie!
The book was just a wonder and the film did much to cheapen the story yet Lincoln the character is so incredibly powerful he can press thru even a butchered script. The film is still worth seeing!!! that is amazing!
