    What made the experience of listening to The Winds of Gath the most enjoyable?

    The cover of the book left me a little hesitant at first. I imagined it would turn into a 'naughty' type of book, but luckily it didn't and the author's description was respectable and interesting of the planet Gath and its inhabitants. My favorite parts of the book was the different types of future technologies, even though you could find remedies of when it was written by such words like, 'tape' rather than 'data.' The way people travel in space is very thought out, with different levels of comforts to the extreme. The lower levels traveling, you have a higher chance of not surviving the trip. Traveling high, you would be rejuvenated and become younger. All and all the book was a very good and quick read. I actually wished it was longer! It left me wanting to read the next book, which I am going to do.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Earl Dumarest likable character the book is focused around also earthborn.


    What does Rish Outfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator performed perfectly there was a few points that the audio recording equipment needed a little work such as mic volume needed to be adjusted.


    Any additional comments?

    If you liked, "Ender's Game," you would love this book.
