Not only is the story line great the performance is too! I hope that there will be a sequel because this book is perfect for one, I honestly don't want the story to stop! it's one of those story lines that doesn't feel rushed or as though the author just threw an ending in at the last minute. I want to know what happens next, hurry and write another or maybe 10 more... Good job!
Maybe not in the top 10, but could be in the top 25. The characters in particular are rich, have complexity, and the story arcs keep the listener engaged.
I actually would, for the previously iterated reasons.
Solid accents ( which are required ) , consistency of characterizations, which I am picky about, and authenticity. Very good job.
We are never truly alone.
This offering snuck up on me, for alot of reasons. A quality plot, solid characters and enough intrigue and reason to keep me fully connected to the story. I highly recommend it.
Blind listener reading everything, especially sf&f & mystery/thrillers, restricted to audio so picky where credits are spent #BooksRule
A very good read... A fusion of sci fi and mystery/suspense thriller... You've got your first contact angle, Conspiracy theory angle, the underlying mystery both past and present, Rogue government official making life hell for everyone, journalist trying to do the right thing, and all those being repressed to keep secrets... A lotta stuff going on... My only true complaint is that the book should have been a lil longer to fill in some of the back story... Then agian, that was part of the mystery;) The characters were fleshed out very well, even w/ the short length... Narration was competent and appropriate.... The production quality of the recording was slightly subpar - even at full volume had to be close to hear adequately... I'm hoping the author has a followup planned...
Narrator is pretty good. I'd easily listen to him with a better story.
There are some glimmerings of interesting ideas in the beginning. I'm always a sucker for first contact stories. The descriptions of the internals of the ISS were pretty on point.
There's multiple mysteries going on that never get resolved. The communication expert gets sent up and never communicates. The main bad guy somehow is and isn't but that's never cleared up because he's dead. Turns into Solaris, kind of, mixed with a Starchild/Jesus ending. Nothing but one cliche after another.
Only reason I was able to finish this was because of the narrator.
Do not recommend.
sci-fi lover. not a prepper but i dig end of the world stories. I'm a black smith and foundry man by trade. & Zombies Zombies Zombies.
this book was a mash up of "event horizon", "K-pax" "2001" "star man" and stupid.
mix it all up with a bucket of dry sand and a lackluster predictable ending.
this is why people don't like scifi.
Characters were not very appealing and story meandered to the point that it just lost me.
I think I will stick to my tried and true authors.
He was actually quite good. He really can do all types of voices and accents.
Perhaps all but Alexi
Too much "god" talk which always makes me leary of what is coming. After all this was supposed to be science fiction.
