Not listening to Larry McKeever. I really believe it is a computer voice and Larry is not a real person.
Rach.... really like his development.
Asimov continues to astonish.
The narrator - it sounds like they had one of Mr. Asimov's robots narrate this novel, and not a very advanced one at that. I literally can't stand to listen to this narrator, where's the refund button?
I've read this book and it provides a great backstory to the rest of the series. I was greatly disappointed that this recording was unlistenable
I think calling this trainwreck a performance is being overly generous
The reader reminded me of the old Texas Instruments Speak & Math from the 1980s. Larry McKeever reads in an almost monotone voice with very little variation between characters. This makes it difficult to follow the story.
I didn't make it far enough in to find something I liked.
It was difficult to follow which character was speaking since there was almost no variation in voice.
The continuing story
learning to tune out the narrator and listen to the story
NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER.... I'd rather stick needles in my eyeballs.
Scott Brick, where are you? How could you take a pass on this?
I accidentally ordered this book before checking the reader. He is the worst reader I have experienced on audible. Audible should remove him from their library and refund all the customers who bought titles read by him. If this were my first book, I wouldn't come back! Susie could do a better job!
Please re record with Scott Brick. This narrator slaughters the names. It is a train wreck. I want to finish the series but this is making it so difficult.
Nobody, poorly narrated
Can't get into the book so it's hard to say.
No, I can't believe this is what he does for a living.....so poorly read, I honestly can't listen to it. I wouldn't give him a single star if that was an option.
I'm torn between skipping this book and getting the next, or wainting until I can go read this the old fashion way.
If you must have all the answers and obsessed with how the robot series connects... yet this is possibly the weakest offering from the writer I have encountered.
overall the story was decent it wasn't as good as the previous story right before it. the problem I had was that the narrator was extremely boring and he didn't act up the parts very well. every voice he read sounded very similar. In fact it sounded like one of those narrators from the 1950s.
