Publisher's Summary

A jungle planet must defend against exploitative aliens in this novel by the number one New York Times best-selling author of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

From the rich imagination of science-fiction great Alan Dean Foster comes the story of Midworld, a Humanx Commonwealth planet that's equally fragile and hostile. Covered by a lush rainforest, Midworld is home to a primitive society that lives in harmony with the natural world. But the arrival of an exploitative human company, whose workers know nothing of Midworld's delicate ecosystem, sparks a conflict. Should Midworld's villagers aid the humans or stand against them? 

The hero of Foster's addictive pause-resister, Born, decides to lead two humans across the perilous jungle. His choice propels Midworld toward annihilation - and leads him headlong into a battle for survival.

Sumptuous sink into greening.

1st read was in high-school, and I remembered a wonderful world that drew me in. Even now I wished it was all real, even if every step was lethal.

Not sure I can finish

I bought this book because I loved 'Lost and Found: The Taken Trilogy, Book 1" so I thought I'd try another book by ADF. Unfortunately, I am disappointed. It's NOTHING like my previous book. I find it very difficult to understand and follow. I am a big fan of science Fiction but I want to be able to understand what the book is talking about.
The narration is awful! The way Eric Martin draws out the end of his sentences drive me crazy. I might try another book by ADF but will never listen to another narration by Martin.
I went by the reviews but aster listening to half the book I disagree with most of them. I find it very baffling and difficult to follow. I am going to TRY and finish the book but with 4 hours to go I am not sure I will make it. Will probably end up returning it.
Perhaps my opinion will change as I finish it. If it does I will update this review. I really want to like it.
UPDATE:
I managed to finish the book but unfortunately I am still unable to give it more than 2 stars.
I felt like the author bought a new dictionary from a foreign planet and felt compelled to use every work from it. To me it was very convoluted making it difficult to follow.
The narrator did NOTHING to help the book either.
