I really enjoyed this book. Zach is a great narrator and I hope to hear more from him. The story was awesome!

I tried to listen to this book a few months ago and couldn’t get into it. Several books later, I tried again... really tried. Ended up going to sleep on it. The narrator has a nice voice and good technique, but the story is slow and boring! Sorry!

I love the content, information, and format but the narration monotone, and boring. If not for the awesome content I’d not even finish it it.

What disappointed you about Pandora's Star?

Too many characters to keep track of. Too much digression to side story lines. I have made it through 2/3 of the book and I am just tired of listening. I can't count how many times I asked myself - "What the hell does this have to do with Pandora's Star?". Very frustrating read.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I have moved on to my first listen of "1984".

Would you be willing to try another one of John Lee’s performances?

I'm open to it, but very skeptical.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Pandora's Star?

Everything but what is directly related to Wilson and the Primes. Sorry, but there are too many side stories and characters to keep up with.

Any additional comments?

I may try and finish this after I'm done with 1984, but I can't promise it. I'm glad I got this book with a free credit and not one I actually paid for.

What did you like best about Invasion? What did you like least?

The only thing that I really liked, and that kept me reading was the anticipation surrounding the coming spheres.

Has Invasion turned you off from other books in this genre?

Kind of. I love "prepper" stories, and I certainly love alien scifi. I get how the two "can" go together, but for me it just doesn't work. In this book, I found myself wanting to know more about the coming spheres, only to be snatched back into prepper stuff.

Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

I liked Meyer best.

Did Invasion inspire you to do anything?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

While I don't think this book was a waste of my time, I'm not really looking forward the next one in the series. Even the graciously provided sneak-peek into the next book, left me thinking it is more about prepper survival than alien sci-fi. Again, I love both genres, but I'm not sure I want to deal with that mix anymore.

I think the story was pretty good; although, there were times when parts of it simply dragged on unnecessarily. The most trying issue I had was with the narrator, whose reading was very taxing. Every male human character sounded like a backwoods good old boy. The female characters were horribly rendered as the narrator made no effort to soften their expression, which made them sound like good old boys too. He did do a good job rendering the alien voices though. Overall, I was really quite glad when this book was over. If there is a sequel, I hope there is a different narrator, or I'll definitely be passing on it.
