A refreshing story. Finally there is a book about a girl who wants to be a pirate, not a princess or just to be pretty. Characters are all very interesting. This is a book full of excitement, fun, and humor. The narrator does a fantastic job. She is very enjoyable to listen to and she can do a wide range of different voices. This would be a perfect audiobook for a family road trip!
It's the longest book I've ever listened to but it's SO good I didn't want it to end!
I love time travel stories. However, they are tricky to plot. I thought Rysa Walker did a pretty good job in this regard. The characters can use more depth and I am hoping that would happen as the story goes on. Definitely looking forward to the second book.
Kate Rudd did a fine job narrating over all except the male voices. It's fortunate that there are limited male characters in this book so it's not too confusing.
Narrator did a great job to bring this book to life!
No matter you like the classic fairy-tale or not, this book is entertaining. It breaks some stereo types we have about princes and princesses. I feel the story can be trimmed a bit shorter but overall I would recommend it.
I was almost giving up on the book when I was about half way through the book. A lot of rambling. Too much back story and not enough about this future world she created. Not much is happening until the last 1/3 of the book. The last 1/3 of the book is good but only if you can get through the first 2/3.
John Steinbeck's stories are heavy and don't necessary have happy endings. But they bring out a sense of reflection and provide us with inspiration. The narrator is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better one for this classic!
It takes a while to get used to her voice. It's like she is talking with a mouth full of saliva. Her pronunciation definitely isn't the clearest.
I love the premise of the book: one person left alone on Mars. It sounds really interesting.
It is an interesting and enjoyable read. Even though it's a story about surviving, the author's humor makes the book less heavy and more entertaining. The technical part of the book does get a bit lengthy at times. It has lots of technical terms and a lot of time is spent on describing how things work. Some readers may like this actually.
Now to the narrator. I personally don't think Bray is the right person for this book. He sounds like a middle age man. His voice is animated so that's good. However, he only manages to do a couple of different voices. It is okay when only Watney talking but I couldn't tell who is who when there are various characters talking at the same time. Women sounds just like men. Everyone sounds aggravated and angry all the time. He also only manages to do the Indian accent well. All other accents sound pretty much the same.
Beautifully crafted, well written, perfectly narrated! It's not just a novel, it's a poem, a song, a work of art. Though I wish the ending is different, I love the book nevertheless. Life is unfair. War is unforgiving. We should all learn from the history: we can end a war but no one ever wins a war.
