    Available to American readers for the first time, this landmark collection gathers four groundbreaking fantasy classics from the acclaimed author of Light. Set in the imagined city of Viriconium, here are the masterworks that revolutionized a genre and enthralled a generation of readers: The Pastel City, A Storm of Wings, In Viriconium, and Viriconium Nights. Back in print after a long absence, these singular tales of a timeless realm and its enigmatic inhabitants are now reborn and compiled to captivate a whole new generation.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The first novel "The Pastel City" is wonderful. It flows, and you can follow it. And then you enter a never ending bog. I am not sure if it's the story, the character names, or some other factor, but I was not able to reasonably focus on the next two novels - nor most of the short stories. The language in the writing was wonderful, but it loses something by being read aloud.


    Would you recommend Viriconium to your friends? Why or why not?

    In text form, perhaps.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Simon Vance was fine.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Perhaps.

    Story
    (307)

    Kevin J. Anderson is one of the most popular and acclaimed science fiction writers in the world. He is a New York Times best-selling author with more than 11 million copies of his books in print. Now the epic saga he began with Hidden Empire continues in this breathtaking novel.

    MS says: "Great Writing"
    "Interesting concept... tendency for repetition"

    Story
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The author tends to repeat key understandings in the story (e.g. *no spoiler* Chpt 1 - Bobby likes chocolate; Chpt 34 - Bobby was very fond of chocolate). It becomes distracting and very much like the fluff put into a college term paper after three books...


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    Well done. Very listenable.
