Publisher's Summary

Dan's life was quite ordinary until the day he woke up in a hospital room, not knowing what had happened to him. Somehow he was different, very different. He was first aware of the thoughts of others. He could read them. At first his abilities were limited, so he did not know of the dangers that the men sent to find him posed.

Now his life is in peril. Someone out there is trying to kidnap him so they can use his powers for their own purposes. Aliens and secret agencies are both looking for him. He must figure out who he can trust before it's too late. He is becoming the Millennium Man.

What would you do if you could read minds?

Millenium Man fits right in with our modern Cinema. It feels like it could have been a part of the X-men series, or the X-Files, hard to tell. But imagine waking up and findout out that you were reading the minds of thse around you. Then imagine your power starting to grow. Then imagine someone wanting that power and hunting you like a dog.

The story has 2 strikes against it, the first I can overlook. It comes across as a Young Adult style tale, but never says that is what it is. That is fine, I just wish I had known that was what kind of story it was. The second is some crappy editing. It is noticable and distracting, and that is a real problem. I can get sold a romance story as being a fantasy, so long as it has fantasy elements and is a good story, but crappy editing in just shoddy. It is like printing a book with wet ink, and smooshing the pages all together before they were totally dry. It makes it hard to read. This isn't that bad, but it did make it hard to listen to, and threw me from the story when it happened. Roberts himself does a good job reading the story, but then good with bad editing . . .

For these reasons I did drop some stars. The story is worth it, so give it a try, and hopefully they will clean up the audio. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Interesting premise, not so great execution

I thought this sounded like a great story and jumped at the chance to listen. Unfortunately, it didn’t work for me. In one part of the story a certain character is described as impatient and not known for his smarts. A few minutes later, the same character is coming up with all the ideas to catch the millennium man. At the same time, the millennium man can read minds but the character just won’t say what he thinks so the millennium man won’t know the plan??? There were just several things that didn’t work. It doesn’t seem to be very well thought out. I received a review copy at my request and voluntarily reviewed.

I'm thinking..

This was a quick and fast listen. I have to say that I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand the premise and staging was so interesting and creative. On the other hand some things are not explained in depth but if you can accept that things are just the way they are then I think you will enjoy the story. I, for one do like mystery in the books I choose so for the most part I did not have a problem with it, other than a few points in the story that I will not give away. I had trouble identifying with all the characters but they were well written; because of the short length of this story the character development is also not too in depth but gives you a glimpse of each to keep your interest. I actually wish this was a full length longer story as I think there are details that are left out that would definitely only help a good plot. I would have loved to hear more about the fella who got the DUI early on in the book or the other Millennium Man as well. There is a lot to like about this book but it was just missing that one special thing to make it great. This was my first performance by this narrator. He gives unique voices to each character so telling them a part is easy enough. There is the use of some effects throughout this story. Not so much sound effects but instead perhaps props. For instance it actually sounds like a telephone call when characters are speaking on the telephone. His inflections and tone were good for the scenes and depicted exactly what I would expect the scene to. One thing I did notice, and I am not trying to be picky but the transitions between chapters sounded rushed and almost cut off. Not all of them but some chapters would just end without pause then Chapter # would be introduced in the same breath. Overall, I did enjoy this story and the performance. I just felt like it was missing that something special. It was a great premise and I enjoyed the major plot points. **I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review via Audiobook Boom. This in no way affected my opinion of this book.**

Interesting idea

The idea behind aliens in this book is really interesting but I felt it was a bit under developed. Considering how advanced they are their method for keeping watch really doesn't make much sense.

There is lots of action and the military aspects are interesting. I thought the characters were a bit underdeveloped but were getting there. It also ended too soon, it felt incomplete, like I'd reached half way only to find the second half missing.

I enjoyed it but felt it didn't fulfill it's potential.

The narration was good, the character voices were well done, and the delivery matched the tone of the story.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Sci-Fi Easy Read

While based in Sci-fi - Dan is beamed up by aliens and enhanced so that he can speak mind-to-mind and hear other people’s thoughts; this story is really about avoiding the sinister earth group that wants to capture him. If they can’t control him, they’ll just kill him so the aliens will enhance the next Millennium Man, who they will try to capture.
A story is written so that it’s almost like vignettes strung together, so there’s less detail and more action. It’s an easy listen Sci-Fi time-out.
Roberts does s good job of narration. Enjoy!

Entertaining Novella

Millennium Man is a clever, fast paced, science fiction thriller. The narration was weak at first, but the narrator seemed to get better as the story developed.The story itself made for a very entertaining three and a half hour novella.

Great start, but abrupt end

What did you like best about Millennium Man? What did you like least?

I really enjoyed the premise of the book: The premise was unique, the characters were believable and the story development was good. There were characters that were decent, but placed in positions where their decency was tested. The plot thickened nicely

How could the performance have been better?

I didn't particularly like the narrator: He seemed to think that, in order to read the female characters, he had to use a high, squeaky voice. Some of my favorite narrators are able to portray a female character, not so much by pitch, but by voice inflection. This is much more effective in my estimation.

Was Millennium Man worth the listening time?

I'll give this a hesitant "yes."

Any additional comments?

It felt to me like, after spending and investing a good amount of time developing characters and deepening the intrigue and plot, the author either ran out of time, or wasn't sure how to artfully resolve the conflicts and plot twists.
The book came to an abrupt end leaving me wondering "what just happened? What about this conflict, how did this go from so complicated, to an ending in just a couple of pages? I believe the author can write. I don't know if he ran into a deadline and had to finish quickly, but that's how it felt to me. I would give him another chance, but I would look for a title that was significantly longer that 6 hours.

Love the story.

There is a great story in this book but it feels incomplete.
It is well written, the recording needs fixing, not that it’s bad it’s just that you can hear every time that it’s edited.
Beside that it’s a beautiful short story with an excellent possibility for a series.
Recommended !!!
