    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Sorry - I am sure this book has some great content but the way it is written/read reminds me of the most boring lectures from university - hard to even stay awake. It was recommended to me so I really gave it a good go and listened to every word but at the end of the day I got nothing out of it.


    Has Crossing the Chasm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No

    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I liked the start - the idea of a nano spaceship - AI, programming etc. but it did not do a great job of maintaining the interest through the latter part of the book and I felt that the ending was weak. Needed more of a twist, something we did not expect - the ending felt like a last minute addition simply to herald in the next book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I think the characters were a little flat.
