I thought the concept of this book was excellent and I was very excited to start reading it. Unfortunately, after the first chapter the focus of this books breaks down to multiple soap opera romances, and guns. I would have liked to have seen a lot more focus on the technology challenges that the community would have faced.
It was an excellent concept and that probably makes it worth the credit. But, not sure I would highly recommend it.
I was planning to read the sequal, but this book changed my mind.
I am compelled to write this review because it is simply the best book I have listened to in years. It has humor, suspense, and an outstanding plot. The narrator made you feel like he was experiencing every second of the book and his delivery of the funny moments was perfect.
Don't want to give the story away, but suffice it to say that the plot builds and builds right up to the end. This is a great story about the space program that we wish we still had in this country - a program loaded with brain power and heroes - not just budget cuts.
I do not recall listening to any other books by R.C. Bray, but based on his performance in The Martian, I will look for him in the future.
Absolutely!! There was never a point where I got bored and it was difficult trying to find a break point each day.
Well done. This is my first "Highly recommend" book..
Complex storyline with rich character development. Narrator's voice inflexions were spot-on for all of the characters. A lot of different story lines that all somehow come together in the end.
It made you feel like you were living in the city of Instanbul and absorbing the culture. Also like the way the author incorporated current themes & international threats into the plot.
I was stationed in Turkey for 2 1/2 years, so I think the scenes around the Galata bridge brought back the best memories.
No. It is a long book with very complicated plot lines, but the author and narrator made it easy to follow throughout the book.
Not sure I would classify this as science fiction, but the nonotechnology developments used throughout the book made it very interesting.
A bit long, but kept me involved for the full 30 hours. Strong and thought provoking finish.
The narrator did an excellent job with the voices of different characters. I never tired of hearing his voice and the pacing was right on.
I doubt it is possible to listen to this book in one sitting, but I was always anxious to get back to it. I tried to stretch it out till my next credit was available, but ended up a week early.
Stephen King has quite an imagination.
Sorry, this one put me to sleep everytime I tried to listen to it. No action and boring characters.
I almost didn't buy this book because of some negative reviews. However, I'm very glad I did. It was one of the best books I've listened to. The book is well balanced on life before, during, and after the impact. Lots of characters, but that helps give lots of perspective to the story.
