    "Strong Finish"

    Both the story and the narrator finished strong.

    "Saga Of 7 Suns"

    This was an excellent series, multiple sub-stories that all interconnected well. I highly recommend this series, very well written and well narrated.

    "Never change narrators in the middle of a series"

    It took the last books in the series to get used to the new narrator. Bad form to change in the middle of the series.

    Enjoyable stories. Great series.

    "Finally done."

    It is always difficult to keep any series interesting or even exciting without the introduction of new characters or the invention of a magnificent plot line. Otherwise when main characters do not die despite all the odds the book (as in this series) becomes predictable & boring. I think this would have been better as a 3 book series with less characters & less "elements". I also agree that though I love a happy ending with ample allocation of "come-uppings" & "just deserves" that this final book wrapped up too neatly with too many good guys coming out on top. Also while I liked the robot factor I did not like the human emotions attributed to these robots, who could not be introspective & perhaps did not need chapters devoted to their own point of view. This series was too long, but otherwise reasonably entertaining.

    "I've reached that point..."

    Ya know... there is a point where you just sit back and say this or that character is getting ridiculous and it is making the whole story ridiculous. I've reached the point where the Chairman of the Hansa is so one-dimensional and such a pivot point for the enitre story that everything is getting predictable.

    "Finally"

    The events of the saga don't deserve to stretch this long. I'm glad it's over. And while some exciting events take place in the final third of the book, I believe this book is longer than it should be.

    The "good" events that happened in the final third of the book should have happened two books ago, and wouldn't have taken away much of the book. In fact, it would have been an improvement.

    "One of the best sci fi sagas ever written"

    Each and every book in this 7-book series has been totally engrossing. The writing style, the never-ending imagination, the characters, settings - just totally top-notch. I have to give the narrator credit for juggling multiple characters each with their own voice, and multiple races each with their own dialect. The only choice that threw me was using a British accent for the Ildirins...I would have thought a Chinese accent would have been more appropriate, given the nature of the race. I liked the guy who did the first 3 books better, but really not a big deal - the story just sucks you in so completely, it's all ok. YOU JUST CAN'T MISS THIS SERIES!!!!

    "For already established fans"

    Accustomed to writers like Orson Scott Card, I hoped this "final" book would be self-contained, give me a sense of the basic characters and, best of all, make me want to read the six earlier books in the series.

    Nope.

    The interminable story is diced into small chapters, each one touching on a character and a few "current" events. Without a good basis from past books, the listener is more or less "hung out.

    Rather than making me want to follow this author more, I want to run in the opposite direction. Better I think to have left all those stories unfinished than to have supplied such a thoroughly boring and mundane book.
