    "Sequel to "Dust""
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would change the narration. This author's writing is fantastic and deserves to be read with passion and energy.


    What other book might you compare Chill to and why?

    It's the sequel to "Dust".


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alma Cuervo’s performances?

    No. Not to be unfair, but she reads with very little engagement with the characters - it was impossible at times to hear whether it was a conversation, general description, or inward thoughts of a character. Also, she sounds like she has a cold when she is narrating this book.


    Did Chill inspire you to do anything?

    I think I'll purchase the book in hard copy.

    "Beautiful Story Telling"

    I resisted the previous book in the series, 'Dust' for sometime. I love the generation ship trope, but not so much the fairy-tale motifs which are sprinkled throughout the narrative. Despite it's grounding in the structure of high fantasy, I was so taken with the book, that I downloaded this, as I consumed the final hour of 'Dust' so as to dive, immediately, back into Elizabeth Bear's beautiful prose and sense of wonder as conveyed though Alma Cuervo's cooly intense narration. 'Chill' takes the characters on a very different quest and we see more of Jacob's Ladder than before. I am very anxious for audible to offer the final installment of this trilogy.

    "tangled and intense"

    Another intense book in the Jacob's Ladder trilogy. My only problem was trying to keep the family tree in order in my head - probably because it has been a few years since I read Chill. Must get book 3 now to keep the momentum going...



    Verdict: wonderful books, but listen to them in order!
