I liked just about every aspect of this book except that I now have to wait for who knows how long for the sequal. What message is delivered in the epitaph??? If I have to make a criticism, it's that the formula is very similar to the 1st book in the series, but this is just a quibble and it's a great read. Loved the new charectures. Please bring out the sequal soon.
One of the best listens in a while. Even though its long I did not want to leave future Newcastle or the Sirius system. While the book left a few questions in my mind, the story is neatly contained and satisfyingly concluded. The performance is great. I hope there is a sequal in the works or another tale from the same universe,
The story unfolds over space and time with the back story of the main charecture being filled in as a we go along. This can be a bit confusing but makes sense in the end. Well worth the effort.
More of the same, and that's a very good thing. I love this series. This one is a bit diff as most series regulars are absent in this story, but no problem this is a fun read.
Wow this book was hard to finish. The only likeable charecture dies within the first few paragraphs. Everybody else is so self involved that they can't see the damage they are doing to all those around them. The narration is excellent but does not make up for the general meanness on display here. Also I found some of the charectures motivations to be a little weak.
Great story, intrigued as to see what happens next because all this does is set up a whole series of sequels which I can't wait to read. I liked the two main charectures found some of the motivations and effects of actions a little overblown. But still rich hard sci-fi space opera, I want more.
Amazing how this little short story adds death and humanity to Jane. If only there was more, I love this charecture in this book.
Hard to top the first two books I read by this author. This one comes pretty close. I hope there is more to come from these charectures.
Hard to think of a more depressing subject matter, the misery just goes on and on! Book feels very dated as far as geo political situation goes, also about the effects of a potential Nuclear winter (not giving much away here is all happens at the beginning of the book). Feels very like Stephen King's The Stand, which I liked a lot better.
The fun continues from book one, more Pitt v the Old Ones and there earthly counterparts along with help from the MHI team. Interesting take on old fairy tale tropes continues. Just fun to listen to. To bad there is only one more MHI book to enjoy now! More please, quickly!!!
Fascinating to see the near future predicted in a twenty year old book. England is a very diff place, would have been nice to explore that a bit more (maybe that comes in the sequels). Story is very focused, a little predictable but fun. Performance is good. Here is the genisis of an author I like a lot. Worth a read just for that. Looking forward to getting the sequel.
