Ive heard all the halo books here from audible, i must admit I'm a bit of a fanatic.. Ive gone through the books in chronological order about 10 times from the forerunner trilogy to Halo Last Light. I love the halo universe, and it goes without saying I've been absolutely CRAVING new literature to the point where i started writing my own Halo book. Fractures contains stories that are exciting, emotional, compelling, and rich. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves halo. The last story is such a treat. ❤️❤️
While I am a fan of the entire Halo series, this anthology leaned heavily on the pre/post Spartan eras - not my favorite time frames. I thoroughly enjoyed Scott Brick's narrations of the Dune books , however, IMHO, he simply is not suited for the Halo series. I nearly fell asleep as he droned on and on. Sadly, I cannot recommend this anthology.
Simply amazing book. Scott Brick did a great job narrating all the stories. The only downside was the stories that had cliff hanger endings that left you wanting to hear more. A must have for any fan of the halo universe.
I am a former military Network Administrator from Texas. I love reading, and Audible is the easiest way to do so with my limited time.
I enjoyed many but not all of the stories. and Scott has his moments where it is less enjoyable
I highly recomend it. Every story was well written and intresting with the exeption of the last one which while decent enough in its own right really threw out one of the cool mysteries of the halo universe. Spoilers. The last story confirmed that the forerunners became primitives and then died out which I think is a massive waste of oppurtunity.
This selection of stories is a feast for the imagination. Though several of the stories stand alone, others read more like chapter one of a great book yet to be written, leaving the reader yearning for much more. Even if you aren't a Halo fanatic (I am just a casual visitor to the domain now and then) you'll enjoy these tales.
Great stories that leave you wanting more!!! Excellent insight into the HALO 'verse and possibly things to come...
