    Story
    "Oh...My...God...Becky...."

    Wow. "Bad" does not even begin to describe this book. I'm not sure what was more unbelievable, the flying school bus, or the idea that a Denver Nugget would drive a Prius. The narrator droned-on in a monotone voice, and it took all my will just to get to the rather abrupt ending. The bad guys were all bigoted, gun-toting White Christian cannibals (with bad teeth), while the good guys were a rainbow coalition of peace loving do-gooders. This was, hands down, the most politically correct science fiction story I've ever read (heard?), and it was neither believable or enjoyable. Save yourself eight hours of your life you'll never get back and spend your credit elsewhere.

    Story
    "I like the book hate the narrator"
    What did you like best about Story Time? What did you like least?

    It's an intriguing switch on the apocalypse - a bit too hard core on good guys - bad guys


    Would you be willing to try another book from Linell Jeppsen? Why or why not?

    Maybe - I like the unique viewpoint


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Bigtime by a very flat monotone delivery


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No. I like happy endings at home


    Any additional comments?

    If the narration was better I would have been happy to listen. Unfortunately it put me off

    Story
    "Fun story - distracting narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story is entertaining, but not very sophisticated. Pople have the stock reactions of so many fantasy novels: They receive bad news by getting angry at the messenger; they spend pages telling each other there's no time to waste; and men need to be violent to each other to maintain their self respect. An editor could have helped.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Story Time?

    There are fun moments, as when a character comes to meet an alien race and dubs their repreentatives "Uncle" and "Aunty."


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I seriously checked to see if the narration was some sort of AI experiment. The cadence and emphasis is not quite human. "She ran her hands over her face" is renderedd "She ran, her hands over her face." And thousand of more odd line readings. Voices and accents are okay. It was in the paragrpahs of that the odd, inhuman rhythm sometimes became distracting.
