    Story
    "I don't even know if I can finish this book."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Maybe a better reader.......it's hard to tell which is worse, the reader or the story itself.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeff Carlson again?

    Maybe, even the Beatles had a boring song......probably not this boring though.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader is just not any good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Frozen Sky?

    The whole first 23 chapters was pretty mind numbing with unrealistic technology and useless detail with no point of reference to the actual universe that has been created for the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Two thirds of the way and I am still not getting on-board. This may be my first Audible book I don't finish in 10 years.

    "Very Dissapointed"
    What would have made The Frozen Sky better?

    Make the characters and their motivations more believable.


    Has The Frozen Sky turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No but I would be reluctant to buy another book from this author. The story was just not well written. It was an interesting concept but the story did not come across as genuine. The characters are classic examples of an author trying to write deep motivations and very 3 dimensional characters but ending up with exactly the opposite very possibly because they tried so hard.


    Did Darrin Revitz do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    So So


    What character would you cut from The Frozen Sky?

    The main character needs to be completely rewritten. She is just not believable. I am tired of weak, wishy washy women in SciFi.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I had not wasted the credit

    Story
    "What did I just read?"

    I'm not sure what the story was about, political struggles in the future or intelligent beings on Europa. Story felt disjointed and fragmented, ending elements lacked closure and satisfaction. Was tempted to stop reading when the story focused solely on the human political battles and interpersonal elements that seemed really forced. I didn't like the book that's it.
