Is there another season?

I have to hear more! Hoping there’s more planned- I loved this so much- the storyline, the characters, the voice acting, the sound effects... I was laughing, holding my breath, choked up... please tell us more!

Amazing futuristic realistic and entertaining.

The characters are fully developed and script is well written and I loved it all. Tense and paced with finesse. I don’t know if I could have expected better but so glad I pushed the listen button. Thank you for perfection

Human and haunting

I’ll remember this for the rest of my life. The entire production, composition, voice acting and story brought this to life in a way that will stay with me forever. I’m so blown away by this that it’s hard to put into words, but in short I laughed and wept and felt genuine euphoria along with the characters. It was so impossibly human and real at the core that it was impossible not to feel what they felt. And to feel for them. Incredibly story and so much a reflection of ourselves, the best and worst of us. It’s touched me forever.

You don't want to miss this

I just finished the series. It's definitely 5 stars like the others are saying. No spoilers. Just listen to this. You won't regret it :)

Beautiful but slow

The audio experience is amazing. The characters are really likable. Beautiful story. Some of the dialogue is very slow and random. Overall I really enjoyed it tho.

Keep listening

When I started listening to this story, I was a bit annoyed with the protagonist's voice. Between that and some reactions to the story like "a real astronaut would NEVER do something like that!"- I was ready to delete the book, and find something else. Well, I'm glad that I stuck with it. Since I don't actually know any astronauts, I really don't know "how" they would behave, though for the sake of the drama, the writers should have some latitude. Anyway, "Bee" REALLY grew on me... and the story turned out to be a very nice vacation from the current world's insanity.
I think that it behooves one to listen with headphones; there are lots of subtleties in the recording that you'll miss just listening on your laptop... also, I now am convinced that Ms. Chavez-Richmond can look forward to a really fine career in theatre, dramatic readings, and (hopefully) film.
The whole thing is really quite well done, FREE, and an uplifting experience.
Thanks Audible!

The female lead character will make you squirm

unreal how the female lead refuses to let this interesting story have a string of dramatic, mood, intensity or any believability. Not exaggerating when I say ever single line out of her mouth is some witty sly joke or comeback. It’s like I’m listening to to different podcasts.

Sets the stage

Intriguing intro left me looking forward to more! Right combination of mystery and dry wit!
