It's not a bad book. It's probably that since I recently re-listened to Bujold's Vorkosigan saga, many other books seem a bit ... em... colorless in comparison.
Story - 4 stars: it's sound, but it didn't take my breath away
Characters - 3 stars: flat. I am convinced that an outstanding character in the book would totally make this a 5 star book across the board. Where are you Miles Vorkosigan?
He did a good job, but didn't strike me as outstanding.
I had a big grin of satisfaction when I finished listening. Likable characters, good story, well read.
I finished 1st book and don't plan on continuing.
I would not recommend the book. For better military series, there is the Lost Fleet. For awesome characters, there is Miles Vorkosigan.
None. The characters are distinguishable only by name (That's not meant to be disparaging towards the narrator)
Decent plot, non-existent character development. There was exactly one instance of humor in the entire book. Why so serious, mr. author? This could be an awesome series, given likeable characters and more varied writing. Every time I heard "blazing", I cringed. There are other words to describe this concept. Ouch.
The professor gives us a wonderful overview of the three major religions, their differences and similarities. All in a style that will keep you interested and learning during the whole course.
I found it very objective, but then I am an atheist.
