When he describes what Cocteau and him may do to entertain their guests. however, what Steven may do is going to be a lot less amusing!
The power of self-irony
compelling story, complex characters, great sci-fi background, update scientific notions, enthralling plot, unexpected twists
From the start John Lee has been my favorite reader both because of his voice and interpretation. Besides he manages to give different personality to all characters.
We push ice and more
the characters totally lack a minimum of credibility. their emotional reaction would be poor even for a videogame trailer. The main characters shift from a college professor whose family has just been slaughtered to a hard minded hero in a matter of few hours.
Characters are emotionally poor and to all extent unbelievable
Nice voice and good reading and compelling reading
The story develop into a mess of loose threads and the character become less and less convincing.
The voice, the characterization, the overall sense of drama
I had high expectation for this story, especially after the first book of the miniseries (Pandora star) that, although not exceptional suggested interesting development. Sadly, this was not the case.
a well reasoned and through analysis of the topic
It's just a repetitive series of slogans.
Preposterous, repetitive, useless.
A great window on a part of recent american history and a very human self-portrait of a fighting man read by his son
Kirk's Douglas unabashed fighting spirit
You can't but think that while he was reading his father's biography, he was moved by it and there was a lot of self-identification in his father, too. Touching.
Never give up!
Among the good one but not the best
When Michael Caine introduce his racist neighbor to his Indian wife!
Well, we are talking of Michael Caine! He can't perform badly. However, given his status, I was expecting something better. He is singularly bad at telling jokes! And he is obviously stage laughing afterward. Disappointing.
When he discovers that his mother kept hidden his half-brother for years.
Sci-fi at its best. An enthralling plot. The characters are complex and interact in complex patterns against a convincing yet not invasive cosmic background where the key questions about the meaning of life are continuously present.
Nevil Clavain and his internal moral struggle
The channeling of a star through a cosmic funnel to incinerate a whole planet
The problem with Sanderson's trilogy is that it goes on with no inspiration. You can't feel the need for things to happen in certain way. It is just a long and tiresome house of cards of stereotyped characters and complex magical rules
The reading was somewhat uninspired
Yes, John Lee add a lot to the experience of the reading. I got addicted to his reading style.
It's half way between Blade Runner (the dark atmosphere, the internal struggle among the prefects) and some Phil Dicks' novel (the three stigmata of Palmer Eldrich)
The final confrontation
Yes, Alastair Reynolds is always welcomed
the story was honestly written and not too pretentious in his goals. It delivered what it promised: a post zombie-world.
While the story was honestly written, it was definitely all too obvious. There was nothing original in it. The soldier on leave, the family, the middle-aged engineer, the nuclear silos ... all had been already seen several times.
Yes. Nice voice and good rhythm.
A series tv. Post zombie world.
