    Would you try another book from Nevada Barr and/or Joanna Gleason?

    Love Nevada Barr but would never buy another abridged version


    What was most disappointing about Nevada Barr???s story?

    Impossible to follow choppy abridged version


    Did Joanna Gleason do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Decent job - neither a cause to get the book nor a reason to avoid if.


    What character would you cut from Ill Wind?

    It was already mangled in the abridgment. I certainly wouldn't cut anything


    Any additional comments?

    SKIP THIS ABRIDGED VERSION!

    The best-selling author of the classic Mars trilogy and The Years of Rice and Salt returns with a riveting new trilogy of cutting-edge science, international politics, and the real-life ramifications of global warming as they are played out in our nation's capital - and in the daily lives of those at the center of the action. Hauntingly realistic, here is a novel of the near future that is inspired by scientific facts already making headlines. BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction by author Kim Stanley Robinson.

    "Interesting premise--Horrible narrator"
    Overall

    The narrator of Forty Signs appears to have just learned to read. He spoils what might possibly be an interesting read. It was very hard to tell if I liked the book or not because of his odd pacing, his lack of inflection and his weird robotic pronouncing of certain words and sentences. I gave the book 2 stars more for the author's sake, because it's quite possible this is an interesting book. I can honestly say I would NOT recommend buying the audio version of it. If I read the sequels I'll buy the actual books.
