    At the heart of a bizarre planet lay the goal of every being that had ever lived.… Below average in height and unprepossessing in appearance, Nathan Brazil is an unassuming if cynical starship owner, carrying passengers and cargo for a living - hardly the sort of person to hold the fate of the entire universe in his hands. But when Nathan detours from his route to answer a distress call, a hidden stargate hurls him and his passengers to the Well World, the master control planet for the cosmos. Billions of years ago, a godlike race unlocked all the secrets of space and time and remade the universe according to their grand design.

    Story
    If you could sum up Midnight at the Well of Souls in three words, what would they be?

    A joyous romp.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters kept me interested, the description of the well world reminds me of a Dyson Sphere as I have always seen one in my head and so makes the idea plausible.


    Any additional comments?

    I read the well world saga in my teens and have kept copies of them around me ever since. I love the characters and the seemingly infinite forms of life the well world contains.

    No one at Meetpoint Station had ever seen a creature like the Outsider. Naked-hided, blunt toothed and blunt-fingered, Tully was the sole surviving member of his company -- a communicative, spacefaring species hitherto unknown -- and he was a prisoner of his discoverer/captors the sadistic, treacherous kif, until his escape onto the hani ship The Pride of Chanur.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I have loved this series since my youth. I literally read the covers off of my copies ~ and there were numerous copies!


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    The only complaint I can offer is that the narrator pronounces Pyanfars name ( in my opinion) incorrectly. Her mate gives a hint at the correct pronunciation when he calls her "Py" (as in Pie) The narrator consisstantly calls her "Pee - ann - far " instead of "Pie -an-far" I found myself whispering my pronunciation over hers as it consistantly bothered me. I know it is a minor complaint, but it does take a minute measure of enjoyment out of the book.

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Would you listen to Fool again? Why?

    It is an amusing tale which had me laughing out loud at times ~ which can be embarrasing in public! when no one can see your earbuds!

    Honor Harrington has been exiled to Basilisk station and given an antique ship to police the system. The vindictive superior who sent her there wants her to fail. But he made one mistake: he's made her mad....

    gerry says: "Damn you Steve Gibson"
    "Irritating pronunciation"
    Overall

    I LOVE the Honor Harrington books but I found myself flinching everytime the reader pronounced "Manticoran" She says man-TICK-oran instead of Manti-CORAN. I almost bypassed the rest of the series because of this.

    The Stormriders land their splendid winged stallions on the airy battlements of Isse Tower. Far below, the superstitious servants who dwell in the fortress' lower depths tell ghastly tales of evil creatures inhabiting the world outside, a world they have only glimpsed. Yet it is the least of the lowly, a mute, scarred, and utterly despised foundling, who dares to scale the Tower, sneak aboard a Windship, and then dive from the sky.

    A User says: "Great listening"
    "Good Storyline but...."
    Overall

    This books' storyline is good but it gets bogged down by descriptive passages that seem to go on forever. Reminded me a lot of the "Clan of the Cave Bear" books... remember how by the end of them you could totally describe every edible plant in the northern hemisphere from root to tip and what medicinal properties it had? Same thing here. I just wish it had moved along quicker.
