The Burning Bridge | [Poul Anderson]

The Burning Bridge

The Burning Bridge is the story of fleet of ships seeking to colonize a distant planet. The trip is so long that most of the 3,000 passengers are kept in cryogenic sleep. As the fleet approaches the point of no return it receives a short message from Earth which may change everything; but the few that are awake will not have to make a life altering decision for everyone.

    Story
    "Great Story, but my ears hurt from the yelling."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I liked the story quite much. Had to get a hardcopy and read it to arrive at this state though. Unforunately PB's reading is horrible. Not a performance, nor a reading, but more like a yelling. Very mono-tone and quite staccato. Only worst production I would place this above would be F Paul Wilson's Sex Slaves production. Make sure to listen to the sample first, as that's about the peak you'll hear.


    Would you recommend The Burning Bridge to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but not his audiobook version.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Pat Bottino’s performances?

    No.
