the first four were good but i kept waiting for some things to happen ( i dont want to be a spoiler) and wow did they happen. i do like the new narrator we got in the last book i think he ads a bit more drama to books and makes them more enjoyable to listen to. i get to start the next one in the series tonight and i am looking forward to it!!
I love this series.
I thought I would've been used to the new narrator by the end of this book but.... nah, It's not merely the pronunciations but the accents as well.
It's bad enough to speak the Compi names in such a screwy manner, it's far worse to make seemingly random decisions about the dialect and therefore the origins of several characters. This narrator Colacci decided, for some reason, that people with names like Nikko Chan Tylar and Kotto Okiah should sound like U.S. southerners and the older roamer men should all sound like grisly characters in a western shoot-em-up. Even the "Alien with British Accent" clich'e finally becomes less than outrageous but really, rednecks in space? Not even genteel southern gentlemen but crusty old gosh-darn dusty pantsed cowpokes? Perhaps a listen through of the earlier books for continuity would've been informative.
Perhaps they should've started from book 1 with the new narrator thus buffering us from the shock of being forced to leave the marvelous George Guidall for this hideous treatment.
This is a long series and I've wanted to make sure and finish it - but I was getting a bit bored by end of 4th book. So it's been about a year and now listening to this book I am much more excited about the series and will jump directly to next book. Tons of action - good flow, narrator is great.
The Saga of Seven Suns, much to my surprise, produced equal to better books throughout the series. Usually, the 2nd, 3rd and beyond books don't measure up to the original. This series is an exception. Unexpectedly, the Saga of Seven Suns has become my favorite book series, one of my favorite science fiction stories. I really enjoy the narrator. He is consistent and doesn't over-act. Regarding this particular book... just another great read equal or better to the previous book in series.
Very much better than book #4. The narrator has toned it down a bit from the previous extravagant performance.
The plot is growing ever wider. There could be 100's or even 1000's of sequels.
Orson S. Card is a genius-I love every book of his I've read. Book series that got me into reading:Piers Anthony:Incarnations Of Immortality
story was great! still thrown off by the audio narrator pronouncing names differently in these later books then they were in the first beginning books...
I loved the story but the biggest jarring issue was the way the narrator pronounced so many words and names differently than the previous books. I would think that it would be common to listen to how previous books were read and try and keep some continuity throughout.
A better narrator who has a character range greater than England and the Condederates.
When the Ildirins showed some backbone and stood up to the Hydrouges at grid zero.
This is a space novel, not a book about the war between the north and the south. There needs to be greater character vocal diversity and I REALLY get tired of hearing that Southern drawl all freakin book long.
Of course. At the end, they release a whole new type of evil and it has to be dealt with.
Fantastic series. Really great character arcs and you never know when the next bit of excitement is going to happen.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and was happy to see several plot threads come together as well as a couple new ones emerging. The narration was great except for the irritating way he tried to pronounce the robot names instead of stating the letters for some of them.
I started reading this series a few years ago. after some substantial changes in my lifestyle, I stopped reading which was frustrating because I really enjoyed the story.
The combination of the story and this being my first audiobook made the experience unique. Add to that the narrator's performance and you can imagine how satisfied I was. All the different character impressions make this a very good audiobook for Sci-fi fans. To me it was almost like watching a movie, but better.
I hope you like it as much as I did.
