    "Good... But Too Much Retelling of Book One"

    I enjoyed Morpheus Road Book 1 tremendously; therefore, I was excited to get my ears on Book 2. Unfortunately, I felt a bit cheated by just how much this book relies on re-telling events already presented in Book 1-- even if the perspective is new. In fact, shortly after I started listening, I thought to myself, "O crud! I got mixed up and somehow even managed to re-purchase the book already listened to." It was THAT familiar. To be fair, the book description does say that is is a new look at those events, but I still expected more new action. One of the aspects of the first book that drew me in was the suspense. It's hard to build suspense when the events are so familiar. It took me a long time to finish this because I kept leaving it to listen to a book whose plot I did not already know.

    There ARE some new elements. The struggle between Cooper and Damon is fine, and the character Maggie was very interesting. But still, the focus on re-telling the Book 1 plot seemed to overwhelm the story. The narrator is excellent, and the book is well-written. Also, I'm sure if I hadn't listened to Book 1, I'd have been enthralled with this one. (In fact, it might be the superior of the two books.) Cooper's viewpoint is interesting, but since it is intended to follow the first book, I felt that MacHale owed us a little less Book 1 plot re-hash. I'm still planning on getting Book 3, but I will be more cautious and check more reviews, and not just get it on the strength of the first two.
