This book has an interesting premise. It follows a long line of other titles that have a "Me against the World" theme. It is definitely a good listen since it is well read. I found the book a bit uneven in parts, but that is why they call them unabridged versions.
I really don't know what I was thinking when I bought this book, but I am glad that I did. The story is great and the narration is also great. I have listened to this book twice which is something that I rarely ever do. I cared about most of the characters and once I realized that the main narration was from the POV of someone like the main character I wasn't annoyed by some of the dialogue that would otherwise have made me gag.
I found this story to be very entertaining especially the first half of the book. The protagonist is interesting and the author places him in some very well designed scenarios. One thing I had to muscle through was the dogmatic conservatism in the story especially towards the end of story. I have read stories that had the opposing bias before so I suppose this isn't unfair. However at times it breaks of the pace of what is otherwise and exciting story with great procedural elements. No room is left for moderates everyone is conservative or a blooming idiot so if you can't stomach that move onto other SF.
