I am a Seth Godin fan, and regularly read his blog. This collection of essays is excellent and well suited to audio. If you enjoy hearing disruptive ideas and then trying to apply them to your business -- you will like this book
I really enjoyed this novel. The additional "good guy" characters (freerunners, Mother Blessing, Linden) were very engaging, and the carryover characters from "The Traveler" also developed nicely. The story is good, and the lead characters are more proactive this time.
Anonther reviewer referenced this novel was dark, and it certainly started out that way, but I actually think there is quite a bit more hope and good in this one -- although you never know who is going to survive!
The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that the "bad guys" are very thin. Michael's surprising betrayal in the earlier novel is never explained in a believable way, and the author's promise to explore the depths of Nathan Boone is not evident to me.
The first realm (where the Dark River is), is more interesting than the second, but the only really interesting characters there are the ones who travel there.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Traveler, and I cannot wait for the next novel...
