The Narrator did a good job keeping the diverse characters seperate, but he had to work with the material provided.

Single joke that might have been funny in a much shorter format. But in an attempt to pad it out to novel length, no trope went without its lampshade.

Made my wish list expand

Narrator uses just a hint of a stutter when the action gets hot, sounds very authentic!

Good overview of a little remembered author

Written in 1898, this eerie foreshadowing of the Titanic tragity is interesting in its own right.

But wait, there's more!

It's followed by biographical material, autobiographical and otherwise, of Morgan Robertson that paints an interesting picture of this Edwardian author, inventor, and above all, sailor.

A deep backstory and large cast of characters seem overwhelming at first, but quickly the characters become distinctive, each with their own voice, and this story, more than a generation in the telling, proceeds at a breakneck speed.

Part biology, part poetry, as entertaining as it is educational.

Mosses were sadly overlooked in my biology classes.

Stories should be either character driven, or plot driven. Here there is only one character, and he so flat I had to listen twice to be sure he had a name and not just a title. Only an inciting incident, alkst an IOU for a plot,

The Steampunk magic system was interesting, then the author doesn't do anything with it.

I want to see more from this author, I want to see more of this story. This needs to be expanded into the first chapter of a longer work.

Not the Molly Harper I was looking for!

I bought this solely on the strength of the author's name, expecting a supernatural romance with strong characterizations, told with humor.

Instead I got a Young Adult novel with flat characters and no humor to speak of.

Are there two Molly Harpers?

And again, as a fantasy young adult novel it was OK, just didn't meet my expectations.

A meteorite impacted in 1952, and the space program started earlier than in our timeline.

As sexist, racist, and antisemitic as America was in the Mad Men era, the previous decade was worse. Can an Astronaut Corps of only White Christian Men succeed, or will it be diversified in time to save humanity from an extinction event?
