My apologies, I wrote my review on book 2 and meant it to be on book 1!
I read a lot of SciFi and this book was a good listen. The narrat..Show More »ors voice was a bit difficult for me at first, but once I got used to her, she was actually a very good story teller. The book was written in 1979, so some of the themes are quite dated (The Soviet Union for example), however while dated, it was an entertaining read. I have just purchased the second book and will be listening to it right after I finish Neil Gaiman's latest book.
