Full of Surprise
The Postman by David Brin - Post apocalyptic but not formulaic. The story unfolds int the time after. After exactly what is not revealed. We know the end of the world as we know it was bad, but that's not the story. The story is about life after. Read this book. Highest recommendation I've given to an audible book.
The hero, and his airplane.
A particular death. I'll not spoil the book with detail.
One of the best books I've read this year. Complex, resourceful, resolute characters with many dimensions. They are brought to life with good pace.
I can't imagine anyone enjoying it.
The book is obviously a bunch of notes for a book effort that were then thrown together as "scenes" for the book. The result is a bunch of unconnected fragments. I was stunned when the book ended. Practically in mid-sentence. I like Dale Brown but rate this as the worst thing he has ever published - by far.
Yes, but not because of this book.
Anger at getting ripped off by one of the 3 worst books I've ever purchased in my life!
Yes, grade is F minus, less than zero. An embarrassment to Audible.com even to sell it.
I don't think a fifth grader would have found the plot interesting. Couldn't get past the first 15 minutes
Ability to write plot
The reader was fine, but the book just stank.
the company captain, or even better the main character
I am fairly easy to please. For those who choose to listen to this book, it has 4 logical endings, yet theplot resets to zero and another tedious voyage is described, rignt down to the screws that hold the cleats. Note that the book was written in 1978 and is just now revived as an audiobook.Even though the book grinds on forever, it has clearly been edited with an axe. The main character, in his sailboat, hops from one place to another with no continuity. The author is a decent wordsmith, but this epic might have survived if cut by half. Anticlimactic ending.
