There area lot of great ideas in the story. Interesting locations and characters I want to get to know better. But somehow, they did not come to life for me. This is a disadvantage, since I am not living in the æther, after all. There are many bones, but no meat in the soup.
No clue. A better recommending system by Audible would be helpful. ;-)
The performance is quite okay. I like readers with a broader ability for creating voices for the characters, though.
First, couriosity, sometimes boredom and relief in the end.
I'll give one of the next books of Shannon a shot. She'll improve.
I already have "Ringworld" in the pipeline.
I understand the discussion about racism in this title. There are at least some racist undertones, which could be a sign of the time period when the book was written. My biggest complaint is the length. I don't mind long books, but here, less protagonists and locations would not have harmed the book. I wasn't completely happy about the ending either. I'd have appreciated less fighting and a longer outlook into the future of the new civilization and it's building...
Marc Vietor has a likable voice I can listen to for hours. Sometimes, the performance could have been a little less solemn, but after all, he's was a good choice for this title.
Despite the shortcomings – people who love apocalypse stories should listen to this book.
