Publisher's Summary

Anne McCaffrey captured the interest and hearts of many with Freedom's Landing, as Catteni slaves unexpectedly became settlers establishing a new colony on Botany, presumably an uninhabited M-type planet. In Freedom's Choice, the saga progresses to an extraordinary level.

The shipments of Catteni slaves continue, but they find that they are enjoyably reinventing the creature comforts of home, and searching for the origin of the Farmers who were the original occupants of Botany, all under the keen eyes of two very different observers.

When scouts for the Emassi come to retrieve Zainal, shanghaied in the original shipment of slaves, Botany changes irrevocably.

Listeners will delight in this continued adventure of survival, romance, and ingenuity.

We finally meet the Farmers

This second book in the series has the colony continuing to prosper and they also finally meet the farmers. On an odd note Zynel seems to be the only one of his kind that is actively given a chance to show a different side of the Catteni. Aside from that the book is fairly even handed and well written.

Narrator Still Needs a Dictionary

The addition of other voices for characters helps, but the main narrator needs to crack open a dictionary. Really, truly. At least there are no more of her cringeworthy attempts at an Aussie accent! The story itself is as amazing as ever.

FANTASTIC!!!!!

I love this series and the performance by the voice actors was great. It's a nice change from one voice actor trying to be all the characters. The casting was very well done. I really look forward to the next book. When I read the series again, I'll be hearing these choices as I read.

Great.

I love this writer's sense of storyline and adventure. Performance lacks. Monotone lacking expression. Would love to read a paper copy.

One of my all time favorites

Anne McCaffrey is the best writer of all time. Every book she has written is creative , fun and takes you away to places that we can only dream of. The characters in her books are normal people who learn and adapt their every day lives to their new worlds.

Freedom's Choice

The male reader's voice was too laconic. For all characters. The female had accents down pat and was very good.

Good Story, bad naration

Have read the series several times over the years since the original publication, and enjoyed it. The narrator in this version, greatly! detracted from the story with weird voices, one of the worst I've heard from Audible, out of the couple hundred I own.
