    An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a good story about commitment and friendship. I enjoyed it very much.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is about people out in the stars that no longer fit in at Earth. Before they can move on, they have to find a partner to go with them into the unknown. The overweight man named Chiron is in charge and he has a lovely assistant who is an albino. She is also looking for a partner. One man treats her like he is interested and then throws her aside for his original partner. Trouble is, the original partner doesn't want him anymore, so this man kills her new partner. Chiron protects his assistant but punishes the man in an unique way.


    Have you listened to any of the narrator’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Don't recognize the actors in this production.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Chiron does the right thing and protects his assistant, who he loves deeply.
