Probably not, his books are exciting, but seem to be written for Christians only. Does he honestly think any of us are going to become born again Christians with his sad/shameful attempt to convert us.
Remove all references to Christ, Christians and all attempts to add his religious commercials.
Yes, characterization is good.
Would have been four stars without the religious commercials.
I am a big fan of Neal Stephenson. Anathem is a big disappointment. I listened for two hours before giving up. The story and language are so obscure that it is nearly impossible to maintain any interest in it. I have a library of over 500 Audible books. I have stopped listening to only two or three after starting one.
This was the most boring audiobook I have ever tried to listen to. I have listened to more than 500 audiobooks, all unabridged. I have a rule that if I start I will finish. I had to break that rule for the first time. I just could not continue. No believable plot, terrible characterization and poor reading.
