Pretty good story, and fantastic narrator except for one thing: he pronounced IC like the letters I and C, rather than the Shadowrun colloquial “ice”. Other than that, I have no real complaints. Would def buy another one by this narrator in Shadowrun.

If you ever think about what it would be like if you could just clone yourself, mind and body, and do anything you want, you'll likely enjoy this book. Sci-fi at it's best.

What could Orson Scott Card have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The narrators are good as usual, unfortunately the story was subpar for me. YMMV, but while I really liked the first two books, I couldn't be bothered to finish this one. I'll avoid spoilers, but about midway through I had to look up whether OSC was a Scientologist or not as the story started to sound like that. After that, it stopped being interesting to me. It felt a little like the author may have gotten bored with his idea, or stuck, and just jumped passed it in the most abrupt and jarring way possible.

Listen to Steelheart. And then Mitosis, and then Firefight. You won't be disappointed. Everything from the story to the performance is top notch. The characters come alive with distinct mannerisms and speech patterns.

Did James Marsters do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I was disappointed in his skills as a narrator at first, but as I've listened to more of the series I see great improvement in each book. By Summer Knight he's among my favorite narrators. If he stops improving at this point I'd highly recommend him, and I wouldn't be surprised if he gets even better.

What did you love best about The Lost Gate?

The magic system presented was pretty easy to understand and appreciate. Seems almost perfect for a role playing game.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hard to say. I liked Wad, but probably my favorite was Danny. He was very easy to identify with.

What does Stefan Rudnicki and Emily Janice Card bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The fact that I can drive while reading and not put other people in danger was best. ;)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Certainly.
