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

    This has to be one of the most unorganized, ill conceived ideas for a novel yet. It is very disjointed and hard to follow. Far too many "side" characters that nobody but the author care about. Don't waste your money.


    What could David Weber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Ended the series


    How could the performance have been better?

    .


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Rising Thunder?

    All of them.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    The starship Lady Macbeth encounters a long-abandoned alien spacecraft, with its escape route still intact - but leading where? If the crew claims salvage rights, the technology inside could make them wealthy enough to buy planets. But first they need to make sure it's as empty as it seems.

    Horrible beyond belief. I think the narrator was working from his garage with a really cheap sound effects machine.
