Fantastic narration by Poe, and a fascinating ( if not at times somewhat unbelievable ) story arc. It's the mother of all conspiracy theory lovers books/series.
The supporting story for the Roswell Incident is entertaining.
Each character comes to life. An award worthy presentation.
I highly recommend this BOT, and urge Audible to upload the entire series IMMEDIATELY!
The diversity of characters was compelling. Additionally, the concepts and history add layers of interest that holds the listener rapt. At least, this one.
The last hour or so is full of twists and developments that make the length of the listen well worth it.
Galelio was damn compelling. PJ did a great job with the challenging range of characters and accents overall .
Nothing extreme, but certainly made me research and think about the concepts presented.
This was a great little discovery by a new artist and performer for me. I think you will find this one entertaining, exciting and thoughtful as well. One of the best of 2015 so far. Highly recommended.
Only listened to it, so don't really know.
The overall concept is compelling, to say the least. Certainly the concept has been visited in the past, but not to this level of nuance and complexity.
Yes, and he does a fine job here. Lot's of characters to explore, and he does so with a flourish.
Not extreme, but it was compelling at times. Esp. the conclusion.
This book spans a wide range of concepts, which at first glance seem unrelated. Yet somehow it is pulled together with style and aplomb. I liked it a lot, and so will you! Recommended.
Interesting take on time travel, from a well respected and consistent speculative fiction author. In that context then, I would, with the usual reservations.
As above. Redundant question.
I have , and the performance here is very good. Not the best, but certainly professional. Some crappy editing and back ground noise which is becoming all too common in Audiobooks performances recently , however.
Decent offering, interesting but slightly derivative idea on time travel, with a solid performance and some interesting twists. Likely a series pending, but stands by itself well.
Gosh, there are so many "aliens invade the Earth " that I can't pick just one. Needless to say, this one is unique in many aspects. Artificial intelligence, rogue agents, etc. This one has it all!
RC is one of the best in the business ( witness his performance of "The Martian" ) and this effort continues in that tradition. In this outing, he has to take on aliens, both genders, and AI, and carries it all off with style and intelligence.
Not really, aside from it making me want the next book in the series to come out soon!
This is an outstanding start to what promises to be an excellent series. Highly recommended!
The author clearly has done extensive research into Nazi scientific history, and this was interesting. That said, the format and execution of this mess left alot to be desired.
Much better editing, updated continuity, and a clearer, more consistent performance.
Lose the French woman's ongoing insertion into the story. Goofy.
Don't waste your credit. I did, and it wasn't worth it.
Human: Victor. Complex, authentic and rarely predictable.
Non Human : difficult to say without a spoiler effect, but all the non human characters are fascinating and totally original.
All 3 of them were shockingly real, consistent and professional ( unlike some of the recent performances I have listened to.) Stephan and Susan created , and completely own, Julie and Victor, and their total honesty is refreshing. Richard adds a level of complexity to an already rich offering.
This stunning offering continues the Martian saga into the next set of the planets. It does have that Ben Boca feel to it, but the characters are such that the listener genuinely cares about their lives . I for one hope there is another book ( at least ) and the saga continues.
I highly recommend this offering!
Creative and thought provoking was what I liked best, esp. given the way it started and then twisted at the conclusion. It started rather predictably, but certainly didn't end that way.
What I didn't enjoy? Sometimes abit disjointed in the continuity, and the editing wasn't ideal.
Candidly, not much. Riddle is a fine writer, and pulled this one off with style and grace.
The female Swiss doctor was quite the piece of work.
I certainly hope this is the beginning of a series ( it has the feel, and I think it is already actually). As previously noted, a fine performance of an original idea. Worth the time and the credit!
Most audiobooks are fascinating in and of themselves, and esp. Ben Bova's offering. This one is no exception, although it is somewhat dated ( continued references to the Soviet Union , for example. )
That said, it is compelling for what it is.
The usual politics involved in Bova stories is interesting. How dated that has become ( only to be substituted for other worldly challenges ) is interesting as well.
The constant references to "fatigues" grows tiresome.
Stephan is a professional. He works fast, and owns the accents. Nothing much needs upgrading.
This book fits in with the Planet series from Bova, although it is a freestanding offering. Therefore, by default, it has both pre and sequels already.
A decent offering. Not his strongest, but entertaining in an of itself. Mildly recommended.
Yes, I have actually been rather taken by his stories now,and have listened to a couple since my initial exposure. Very creative, tends toward the verbose at times, but very entertaining.
OK here is my beef. Very inconsistent, with far too many back ground noises ( page turning? people talking ? ) and odd editing. Unfortunately this is not even a decent performance.
Not really, but it did enjoin me to look for more from this author.
The characters were well drawn, and the story did have some unique twists and turns. It's a good book on balance, but the performance is so uneven that it impairs ( to some degree at least ) the overall enjoyment.
It's an interesting concept that slowly builds and contains some well researched information. The setting and principle characters are honest, real and assembled in a mostly believable fashion.
Somewhat obvious, but had the action and wrapped things up in a way that made sense.
OK, the narration. This performer could not say the word " crack". In an of itself, not a problem. However, the challenge here is that the word is used extensively throughout the book, and the ongoing mispronunciation became the focus of the experience. Every once in a while he would correct it, and they go back to his messed up ways. It drove me NUTS!
It's CRACK..not...QUACK! There is no mention of ducks in this story that I can see, but gosh by the sounds of it, there are.
Aside from pulling my hair out whenever he said " quack" instead of "crack", no.
The almost funny if not sad mispronunciation of a key word notwithstanding, not a bad offering. Audible, PLEASE edit for these things ( and yes, I know, you are cranking out alot of content these days, but get it right will ya?! )
Recommended with obvious conditions.
