I love Joe Haldeman. The Forever War is one of my favorite sci-fi books ever. I listened to Starbound first, not realizing it was part of a trilogy. After finishing it, I HAD to start at the beginning of the trilogy,so got Marsbound. It is another excellent Haldeman story!
She does a really great job of bringing Carmen to life. She sounds just the way I figured she'd sound at the age she is in this book.
Get the entire trilogy. It's an excellent read!
This book is AWESOME! I highly recommend it to anyone! I am not a fan of horror, so some of King's books are not my cup of tea. One of my favorite King books to date was "Hearts in Atlantis". This book has surpassed that one as my favorite. It is everything I had hoped it would be, and more. It keeps you captivated, intrigued, on the edge of your seat, and the ending does not disappoint.
I love "time travel" stories. This is one with a very interesting twist.
He was EXCELLENT! He brought the characters to life. His pacing was excellent.
I can't tell you because it would give away too much of the story.
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!
It was very eye-opening to hear that the people we so often assume have some God-given talent or gift are really just "ordinary" people who deliberately practiced their craft, and as a result, achieved phenomenal success. It changed the way I looked at work and practice. Tons of great insights.
I don't know if I would have kept reading the print book because it is a bit dry in places. David Drummond did a great job of holding my attention, despite the detailed information presented.
Hard work is not "deliberate practice", and most of us will not engage in deliberate practice because it is SO difficult.
This will change the way you look at what is necessary to become "great" in business, sports, hobbies, etc...
I actually read the print version AND listened to the audio version and enjoyed them both for different reasons. This was very well done.
Can't tell what it was without giving away an important part of the story, but yes, there are several.
My favorite audio book of the trilogy is Starbound. There are three different narrators and they really brought the book to life. I'm always sad to read the last book in a series, as was the case with this one. Excellent tale and commentary on society.
