The book is the grandfather of all space operas. It's story that takes place over 2 billion years and has every you could want from and old time Sci Fi yarn.
It has bug eyes aliens, Ultra weapons, Ether shields and plenty of battles.
The story is a little unwieldy in spots, and takes a little preserverance, but is well worth it.
This book was a painful listen, plain and simple.
The characters are one dimensional and their motivations are not too believed.
I was stunned that a woman would portray her heroine Captain Naismith as a weak, mindless idiot! I simply found the storyline to be irritating in the extreme. Woman falls in love with her captor. Get thrown into his prison camp and marries him. Huh! I just did get it nor I didn't want to.
It's amazing to think that Mary Shelly wrote this book when she was 19. The book is fantastic, it well narrated and acted. I had wanted to read this book for some time now and I'm glad I did.
The story takes across Europe and onto the ice bound barrens of the farthest North. The depths a man's sorry to the peaks of his triumphs.
Don't miss this one.
Well narrated, a great story, much better and much different than the movie. A tale of desolation, depression and loneliness. Can Neville find a reason to live through the terror that surrounds him?
A great adult fairy tale. Filled with interesting characters, you can't help but been drawn in. The story is bittersweet and leaves one wanting more.
Do not waste your time on this book. The narration is horrible, the story is moronic. It is not worth anyones times. Please do your self a favor and skip this one.
This story is weaker than the first, the narration take a little getting used to and the story telling is not nearly as strong.
The Frankstein story gets deeper and weirder and still manages to draw you in.
A good retelling of the Frankenstein myth. Well narrated, interesting concepts and charactures.
Good listen worth picking up
The story is fun escapism, old fashion pulp science fiction. The story line is a bit choppy and the end is very sudden, overall reasonable enjoyable.
This book suffers from bad audio quality.
This book is depressing, mind numbing and stupid.
The characters are all dark, twisted and unlikable. No one character has any redeeming qualities and the ending is so dumb it's strains credulity.
