First off let me say this was greatly enjoyable, I listened to it while I was working and I would imagine a family sitting around the radio, the kids laying on the floor with their heads proped on their hands with maybe a bowl of popcorn in front of them. The stories took me out of my head and gave me great pleasure.
I would have rated this 5 stars but there are two Major errors, The book is listed as running for 20 or so hours but there are two stories repeted.
One is a story about a lifelike little doll that a little girl and mother buy in a shop and the other is people living under ground to excape the radiation from world war 3 and they are careful about genetic mutation and a perfect woman falls in love with a geneticly flawed man.
I dont know what they were repeted but it caused me confusion when the first one repeted and I thought somehow my played had somehow gone in to shuffle mode.
Other then that one error I honestly think it is a wonder audio book and any lovers of old radio drama will love it,
This book add much to the movie, It is multicast
When I heard Luke threading the Stone Needle to prove he is just as good as Biggs
Yes, I heard this many many years ago when I used to listen to public radio and heard it for the very first time. When I had to go on a trip and was going to miss a chapter I put a cassete recorder next to the radio, set it to record and plugged both in to a timer. When i got home I hurried into my bedroom and rewinded the tape. I got to listen to the chapter with the added sound effects of KC our cat meowing for attention. I remember it fondly
Enjoyable book. If you arent hooked by the first chapter then you have something wrong with you.
Z get into his usally trouble but works it out with just a few looming terrifing things coming:)
I was just searching the book lists when I came across the title. When I read the synopis and the very first paragraph took me in and I had to buy this book. I wasnt disappointed and have told friends about it. You will laugh out loud at times.
I am eagerly awaiting another book by the author when ever it appears
What happens in a world where superheros live and the living dead have taken over the world. A Little slow at times but a wonderful listen. I bought about a month ago and have listened to it twice now. I have recommended it to several friends and recommend you try it
Phil Foglio has always been a great artist and the story he and his wife create is Wonderful, If you are a follower of girl genius comic then this is a must have. It follows the first three volume of his series but add wonderful details that he would never be able to give in his comics.
If you are a new reader and have discovered his book I recommend you get this and be prepared to enjoy a good listen.
I have checked every time I log on to this site for a new book from Lois and when i saw that it had finally happened I bought it right away. I agree with another review that it wasn't as gripping as some of her stories have been but it is still a wonderful story. The surprise at the end was totally unexpected and I being a guy will admit that I got chocked up and shed a few tears. I hope that Lois doesn't make us wait another 9 year for the next story. If you are new to this series I agree with others Start with Shards Of Honor or Warriors Apr, You will be sucked in and will never escape Lois attraction,
