I'm a fan of Neal Stephenson -- and loved Snow Crash and a couple others -- but this book is not one that I could recommend -at all- I found it a great challenge to even get through it, let alone wanting to see how it turned out.
This was easily my least favorite of the entire series, switched main characters and really seemed jumbled in places. Very disappointing.
I liked the premise, but did not find myself engaged in the story. If you're looking for Steam Punk - I found the Spring Healed Jack book more engaging.
Fantastic story - great alternate history with super powers world. Characters are very enjoyable and ones for which you really find yourself on their side. Highly highly recommend.
Another book that the family doesn't want to stop listening too in the car --- get the "awwww can't we drive around more dad?"
Fun series for all ages - we have two girls 10 and 8 - we eagerly await the 3rd book in the series... :)
One of my all time favorite Sci-fi series. If you're at all interested in military space tactics -- these are the most realistic combat scenarios, fast and fun books. Highly recommend.
Great book -- alternate history with super-powers. Great characters - really fun story. I'm also a big fan of the Dresdin files, but this is completely different. Highly highly recommend.
What an awesome book -- whole family (7 and 10 year old daughters, my wife and I) enjoyed thoroughly -- you know it a great book when after you've driven 5 hours and are at your destination - the girls say - awww can't we keep driving... :)
Eagerly await next book in the series.
Loved the main character, and the premise of the Arthurian hero back from the proverbial dead to save his people - but with the twist that his legend grew after his "death" into someone he really isn't. Great perspective on this classical twist.
Also, fantastic ship battles in space as it's never been told before - found that I was eagerly putting other downloaded books on hold to get the rest of the series. Highly recommended!
This is a fantastic series -- one that draws you in and you want to enjoy every minute of the 18+ hour listens. Very much worth the 1 credit. Highly recommend -- I'm definitely getting every book in the series.
