I enjoyed this book, though it had more of a fantasy feel than I would have preferred. Additionally, there are so many unresolved conflicts that I feel little was answered in this book. I look forward to a sequel.
Hyperion is a great introduction, but the reader is left wanting to know what actually HAPPENS on the journey these folks are making. This book addresses that, and does so in a very exciting manner.
This book starts off VERY slow. I almost stopped reading it. Then it really picked up, and my patience was well-rewarded with an exciting hard scifi read.
This book is a great warmup to the Hyperion series, but really leaves you wanting to read the next book. Great introduction to the characters.
I admit, I was skeptical that a book this short would really amount to much. Turns out, I was DEAD wrong. This book had everything a great story should have, and then some! Seriously an outstanding book! The reading was well-done, and overall I loved listening to this during my drives. Can't wait for the next one!
This book ranks up there with some of my other favorites. Truly awesome story, the full-cast production really made it that much more enjoyable. I've listened to it twice now. Hell of a book!
When I first started this book, I was bored, and not really interested in the ideas as presented. I'm glad I stuck with it, however, because the depth of this book turned out to be amazing. Excellent read.
Zombies, terrorists, special ops, and a fast-paced story. The reader is alright, the story is good, and while not usually my type of book, this one was fun. Worth a read/listen.
This prequel to A Fire Upon The Deep is excellent. It takes place far before the events of AFUTD, but in the same universe and with a shared character. Story seems a bit slow at times, but the rest of it makes up for this, and it is all great.
I wasn't careful when I purchased this, and didn't realize that it was abridged. Performances were excellent, the book is pretty novel in concept, but I feel like it was missing something. Perhaps this was because it was abridged.
