    "love this series"

    This whole series is great. The narrator is amazing. The imagination behind these stories is admirable. The best part was when Miranda saved the day..

    "Not as good as book 1- but a stellar ending"

    I fell in love with book 1 of the series, and being captivated by the story- I eagerly jumped into The Great Convergence.

    The narrative is good, the narrator even better.

    However the book tends to draw out about half way through until the last couple of chapters. I feel the story could have been achieved the exact same way minus a few less hours. It gets very descriptive about things that are unimportant and it starts to get boring.

    I like where the story is heading though, so I weathered it and finished.
    The ending is fantastic- worth weathering through the boring bits in the middle.

    Story
    "An exhibition in poor decision making."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the main character had not dropped 30 or so IQ points from the first book. Always making terrible decisions, and seemingly never to learn from them. I could only feel that the irrational decisions where made to progress the story in a way so that certain places would be visited. Actually the dimming was not limited to the main character. This probably was the cause for interaction between characters to be continually off balance.


    Has The Great Convergence turned you off from other books in this genre?

    OSC's magic fantasy is where I started, and I did enjoy the first book. I don't think I'll get reading the conclusion as the second book seems to out cut out the parts a like and filled many pages with few things that were actually thoughtful. More from this genre Yes; more from Joseph R. Lallo, probably not.


    What does Karyn O'Bryant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good overall, and I assumed the 'Performance' rating is for the narrator. She was easy to listen to over all, kept the voice she used for each character broken up enough so that there was never confusion between who was talking. Used an odd whisperish voice for the main character, didn't really bother me, but was odd.


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

    The main character's time in captivity, it was reached through terribly illogical trains of thought reinforced by secondary characters that should have known better, which resulted in actions that should never have been taken. To compound things, anything that was an implication of the captivity was undone by the time it ended.


    Any additional comments?

    I often found my self anticipating clever twists, little did I realizing that the poor insight into situations given by characters, was actually the accurate insight given of a poorly constructed reality.
