Maybe the rest of the trilogy will justify the time spent wading through the slow start of many storylines. Interesting exploration of diverse, intelligent species living in organized peace.

Even better than the Bobverse

Original science fiction with meaningful insights for our current world. Negotiation over knee jerk reaction is good advice for the ages.

The revolution from many perspectives. Certainly gives you a lot of information and understanding. The amount of detail seems excessive. Perhaps it is more redundant than required by the analysis from different perspectives, such as effect of religion, regional origin, economics, etc.

Only saw a few of the original episodes, did not find very interesting

Not much character development; perhaps too short a format for the complex events. Mulder and Scully’s good looks not totally available in the audio.

It will change your perception of America if you have any honesty

It starts a little slow, but the stories grow interesting and tell the same truth till it becomes part of you.

Would you listen to For We Are Many again? Why?

Perhaps, it will prove to be lasting brain candy. There is more similarity, book to book, so far than McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga, that I listen to periodically.

Any additional comments?

This book 2 ends abruptly at an appropriate place to split a good novel in two to double the selling price. We audio consumers rejected most double-priced larger books. Perhaps we could reach a compromise with Audible, if they would sell books in increments of half credits, allowing 1.5 credit books.
The thoughts on one's life, replicated in a computer gives a taste of what we might experience in the next few decades with computer enhanced thinking. The essentially unlimited length of life has implications for our soon to be current issues of life extension.

Irritating reader, good history, but

Good history, but hardly interesting enough to keep you reading into the night. People are polarized on her speach. Its slow with little twists like baby talk or speach impediment. Others say just very nasle or Southern. Many love to listen to it, perhaps in proof of acceptance of develpmentally challenged. She is obviously bright.

Not a Vorkosigan series

A nice fantacy novel with her usual social observations, nomad warrior/ agrarian differences in this case. An effort at explanatin of the magic, a good one i think. Plenty for the female reader.

History through biographies of important but modestly known people gives you a new, excitng story, often with very different understanding of well known events. For a popular book this would profit from editing of the redundant letters and detailed personal events of interest only to another student of this personality.
Reading in many voices and accents was helpful.
