I can’t get over the corruption and scheming of those who gained in this theft or the ineptitude and blindness of those in the US and world financial system who failed to stop this when they saw the red flags. Where are the morals and the ethics of word leaders, bankers and business professionals. I’m sure John Low took an ethics class at Wharton. It’s too bad it didn’t sink in!

What a sad day for the Malaysian people.

The extra sound effects are distracting

The story is interesting and well done with some good humor but the extra effects of voices and sounds got old in the first story. Overall it’s a solid free original just lose the extra sounds and voices. I almost didn’t finish it when I kept hearing “Jersey” shouted in a stupid fake accent each time the state was mentioned.

I’m not sophisticated enough for these stories. They weren’t funny, entertaining or worth the time.

What a novel! This is a great story with enough math and theoretical concepts to make my head spin. The author does a great job at bringing them down to my knowledge and skill level, however. It’s enough to make me feel smart but then it’s Interlaced with fun characters and great humor.

I definitely feel that this is one to be enjoyed on Audible. The right narrator makes all the difference. Mr. Smith’s voices for each of the characters are well done and allowed me to differentiate between each of them. His narration of fast action is extremely well done. Get this book!

So this is basically two different syfi novels that border on fantasy. I should have picked up on the nature of the book from the title but Seven Eves is a bit much.

Spoiler Alert.
The fantasy part comes when the author decided men weren’t necessary and could be completely removed from the story. I just couldn’t move on to the second story because of the rancid taste in my mouth by the ending of the first.

It starts with a fascinating idea and could have really gone far. The down sides for me were the implausibility, excruciating detail and the narrator.

Regarding the narrator, she has a very nice and pleasant voice...when she’s speaking naturally. When she’s doing character voices, however, they are clumsy, grating and hard to listen to. I found my self trying to tune out the characters and “hear” the narrators true voice because it was more pleasant.

All said, I couldn’t finish it. It just had too much going against it and I had to kill it off prematurely.

I found this perspective on the “Generation Ship” unique and refreshing. I love the idea that we can be benevolent if we can find the spark inside us that reminds us, we are like them. It has a good message for all humans, not just future syfi explorers. I recommend the read despite the occasional F-Bomb.

Narrator makes it barable

RC Bray is an amazing narrator and made a very ho hum story worth finishing. It’s pretty slow and pretty implausible. I finished it hoping I could find a good conclusion. It was also ho hum.

The writing is pretty clunky and the narrator made me wonder why I kept listening. A few times my kids (8 and 11 years old) were in the car. They thought the story was great.

I didn’t just return the book because they want to finish it. If you’re looking for something your kids can enjoy this may be it but it wasn’t for me.

One of the most enjoyable time stories I’ve heard

I don’t know why I’m fascinated by time. From time travel to life after life, this is a genre I don’t often read but which I thoroughly enjoy.

While this book started somewhat slowly and I didn’t know if I would like it much after the first life I was hooked. Realizing what it is and what potential this story held I listened with rapt anticipation. My mind raced ahead as I postulated idea after idea for the arch of the story.

I found myself wondering if I could stand living the same life in a Groundhog Day fashion, just waiting to get it right. I loved that the basis of the story isn’t about Harry’s own self-improvement or a quest to “get it right” but from the first words in the prologue of, “the world is ending” it moves into a scope that fills the expanse of space and time.

This is a well written, captivating and entertaining story with a very satisfactory ending. It could have gone badly but even with the satisfaction it leaves appropriate lingering questions. I especially that Ms. North didn’t end with a set up for a sequel. Sometimes stories are destined to stand along.

Don’t wait, buy this book and expand your mind.
