    Story
    "Excellent SF that has aged well"
    Where does Queen of Angels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among fiction, very high. The narrator was excellent and the story was engrossing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the complexity of the story and the way the author managed to make interesting characters while also introducing fascinating scientific topics (of varied fields).


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    It was easy to tell by his intonation which character he was portraying. He got across emotion without ever seeming tawdry.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not in one sitting (it is 19 hours long), but it was definitely a book I was always excited to get back to.

    Story
    "Waaaaannnnnddddeeeerrrrssss.................."

    A meandering work from a great author. Paints an incredibly intricate picture of the Orwellian 1984 societal structure, decades down the road.

    But if it is supposed to be a murder mystery, it becomes lost in the fog of each character's existentialism.

    If the point of the wiring was to get you add list into their reality, it is a masterpiece. But if it is meant to be a murder mystery, it fails miserably.

    The lack of continuity made me stop halfway through, after finding that I had stopped listening several times, and had to remind to where it had lost my interest yet again.
