"In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that McDevitt is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke." (Stephen King)
The main character
I had listened to" seeker". The main character was Chase not Alex. It was much more interesting and the reason I got this story. The story was interesting but they drained on and on about mans flaw of war blah blah blah. It could have been reduced to 5 hrs instead of 9 easily.if you like alit of narration and pointing out of all of mans flaws constantly then this book is for you
I am a very big fan of Jack McDevitt's, but this book was disappointing. It had his usual clever mystery with a nice ending, but the story was just much too slow. And while I usually am indifferent to the reader, in this case (perhaps because I had so much time on my hands) I was particularly bothered by the many mispronunciations.
This book was very disappointing. The few highlights of technology were interesting, but the constant barrage of information dumping and telling made it a snooze. I got through the first 3 hours of this, and decided to stop wasting my time with the book. Perhaps it get's better later on, but the author lost me after the first 30 minutes. Definitely would not recommend this to any of my friends.
I found the story interesting, but was totally distracted by the ineptitude of the narrator. How an adult human being can not know how to pronounce, "emeritus," "Aeneid," "islet," and "Demosthenes," especially if you are going to be pronouncing these words as part of a paid narration, shows a complete lack of attention by the actor reading and the producers. It was disappointing.
Doubtful. My enjoyment was interrupted constantly by my disbelief at the illiteracy of the narrator.
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
I'd have to read it, and then listen to it to answer the question.
The story was okay. I had read Firebird before this. That was much better.
Nothing sticks out.
