Good read.... Heard about this on "This is Audible" on XM... got it and wasn't disappointed. Interesting story and the reader is good to boot. I Recommend it.
Good story, Good Reader, Got 99% of the references. Loved It. will be listening again I'm sure
I love the Old Man War series.... (don't like the he said, she said, they said, in the reading but the story is good) and the reading is good too. Keeps you interested and i love the universe. Wish i could go there when I'm 75.
Just about anything John Scalzi has written and I have listened to has been totally worth the time and money. The stories keep you interested. The Old Mans War series I repeatedly listen to, Agent to the stars is good, Redshirts was awesome (I'm a big Trek fan) and Android's Dream is no different. Good story, Wil Wheaton does a great read.
I Like a story and read that make you just loose track of everything but the images in your head.
The Only thing I can complain about is the "he said", they said, she said.... constantly. cut that back and the readings would better. (That goes for all the Scalzi books I have listened to though)
Come on! It's Gateway... Interesting structure in storytelling and just a good book. Soon as I can I am going to get the rest of them in the series.
I liked this book, I found it interesting and compelling. until you get to the stories of Capitol. some of those I didn't really care for but they make sense in the total scheme of things. Thumbs up from me.
I liked Enders Game and I liked the Enders Shadow Series. But Speaker For the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind were just no worth the time. These books are just to uninteresting to listen to more than once and I am having a hard time justifying the first listen. Especially at the cost of all three of them.
Good book, But listen to Enders Game first. (Don't bother with the rest of the Enders game books but the Enders Shadow books are pretty good)I like the fulfilling aspect of the story and how it fills in the gaps of Enders Game.
A different writer
Lack of umph... I still have a hard time remembering anything about any of the characters, and the ending just falls on its face.
Narration was good, story was lacking
very disappointed in the entire series
I bought all four books in this series, I made it thru about 70 hours of it and just couldn't go on to find out the conclusion of the last book. I like sci fi and thought it would be good. I was wrong. Some of the concepts in the story were interesting, but not interesting enough to keep my attention throughout the full series. Maybe it gets better at the end and it all comes together with some kind of clarity and will make you walk away saying, "This book has changed my entire perspective of universe!"
Bought them 4 years ago and just can't bring myself to listen to them. (and that's saying something being the fact I have listened to a reading of the FAA pilots handbook just because I was bored driving down the highway).
I just look at it as a bad purchase (all four) when I was trying to find something interesting and read rave reviews about it. Most of my audible books I have listened to at least 4 times each, (I have a lot of time available when driving) and it's sad when I can't even finish a series of books just once.
I'm not some professional book critic and don't expect to read this at the New York Times, and don't take my word for it. I didn't like it and it's 70+ hours of my life I won't get back.
many times. and already have
I read this book in High school, and a couple times after that. I've Listened to it about 5 times since I bought it. There's just something about it I love. Hardwired was a decent read but Voice of the Whirlwind is a far better book, and I'm sure I will listen to it again sometime soon.
