    Story
    "A moving adventure"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For me, it took a while to get into the story and relate to the characters - about a quarter of the way into the book. But after that, I was all in. I felt the losses the characters felt, and their passions and their plight.


    Any additional comments?

    The end was satisfying and left me thinking about the characters and the world for days after finishing the book.

    "Entertaining story of good vs evil"
    Where does Gods of Earth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Entertaining listen but low on my list


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The Gaurdian's story


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The initial interactions between the Guardian and Chance


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

    No, but still entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    This story had some interesting creativity behind it. It flows well even though the plot gets predictable at times. The narrator does a nice job of seperating the personalities. Another reviewer said the author was pushing blind faith but must have set aside the story early. The main character finds that faith, like so many things in the world, is not as it first seems.

    Story
    "A full throated defence of blind faith"
    Any additional comments?

    but seriously this is so one dimensional its stupid. It starts off somewhat promising but it becomes pretty clear that what the author was trying to do here was promote a very specific view of the world. Brandon Sanderson said it best in The Way of Kings: "the role of a storyteller is not to tell you what to think, but to give you questions to think about." This is not that. It is very clearly telling you what to think, and bluntly. World building is very formulaic and in a way that feels like the author was just doing a scifi checkbox thing. A huge disappointment.

    Story
    "Supposedly nice premise obscured by whining hero"

    Apparently there is some philosophy here? I don't know, I really couldn't make it through the endless contrived encounters between whining cardboard characters. The background and world is really lavishly constructed, and I kept wanting to continue, but in the end, the plot developments are so clumsy and contrived, and the characters so flat that I just couldn't sit through their whining to get to the heart of it. I did my best, but ditched it after I fell asleep in the middle of a giant battle scene between some talking animals and a dead guy and an immortal statue with a hammer and such.

    "Disappointed"

    I couldn't even finish the book. It's too long, and there's a lot of just waiting around and stagnant plot. I only made it through about 8 hours of listening before I gave up.
