Loved this book as a young teen when if first came out. Like it still now. This was one of three that I remember from my early SF days and searched for forever(!) Just recently got this (the last) of three, and now, even better, it comes out in audible. In spite of being that old it doesn't feel (very much) dated even.
Continues a great series, This one's more complex, my wife and I (listening together) had to stop many times to keep track of everything. Made it very entertaining.
Like many of Weber s recent book the beginning is rather wordy and descriptive. Eventually the pace picks up. My wife and I were wondering almost to the end how it would end. She guessed it, I never did.
The book itself is quite good, we immediately went on to the next one. However there are serious continuity breaks from the previous book, Themes that were significant there vanished without explanation here. Also this has a different narrator than the first one, and while she's good, she pronounces names differently, which we find jarring. The next one is better though!
This a very good book with a delightful narration. The story goes from crisis to crisis. We had a difficult time stopping each evening as my wife and I listened, in fact we spent the time we'd plan to read our current printed library book listening to this one, to the point I had to renew it. The character development made us feel like we knew them.
We're listening to the series, and each is better than the previous. We stop during the story to comment to each other and try to predict what's going to happen. Mostly feels realistic. Good pacing.
I liked Little Fuzzy. Loved this one.Good story, well told, nicely updated from the original. Down checked the narration one star because in a conversation, each speaker was identified, rather than rely on voice alone. Don't know if thats the narrator or the author, If the author, they I apologize to Mr Wheaton.
Last of the trilogy. Great story. My only objection being that the ending seemed rushed. Unlike other authors nowadays who seem to stretch out stories, it felt like there was much more to tell, but the author rushed to get it into one book. Note to author, really, really want one more!
Good read, must be since I've read it before. More-or-less a good, funny rom-com movie in book form.
Get on with the story! More plot and fewer details. At this rate we'll never find out about what's under the temple, or the return of the anglels, or the Gababa, or what happens to the church, or......
continuation of the series was most interesting, however there was so little new, either details, expansion of characters, or extending the story line, that I feel there's only half a books worth of story or plot. The book is mostly battle details, but no more development of the dangling plot elements.
Listen to enough of the previous books to use the same pronunciation for proper names! He got just about every one wrong (that is, different than the previous ones), although in some cases I'll admit that his might actually be better. Secondly, tone it down a bit, It's tiring to have the whole story, even details, related as if it's supposed to be dramatic. Better yet, stop changing narrators! It's quite distracting, and they're getting worse with each of the latest works.
No, not really that kind of book.
I've loved Mr Weber's stories, but the last couple books,in this series, and Honor Harrington are just getting too bloated, and unfinished, and sadly somewhat boring. They've been getting worse with each new one.With these last two, I've been left feeling cheated. I think I'm going to stop buying his books,and wait for them at the library.
