Publisher's summary

They were heading for Venus. Somewhere else found them first....

When a sudden impact sends a spacecraft bound for a distant research station hurtling toward a previously unseen and inexplicable planet, responsibility for the safety of its passengers immediately falls on Ivy 'Holly' Wood, a former poster child of the public space program now fleeing Earth's tyrannical leadership.

The mysterious planet's startlingly Earth-like atmosphere initially breeds optimism among Holly's group of stranded survivors, but before long it becomes clear that Earth's rules don't apply and that nothing can be taken for granted.

With all hopes of escape dependent on discovering the true nature of this increasingly hostile planet, Holly and the rest of the desperate survivors know only one thing for sure: Their newly discovered world will not give up its secrets without a fight.

Terradox is a sci-fi thriller/adventure novel from the author of the breakout best seller Not Alone, an Audible.com 'Best of 2016' finalist.

Skip it.

The plot is dumb, the characters are so unrelatable, that I couldn't tell who was whom and this didn't really matter because every line made about as much sense if it was delivered by the little boy. The only way to enjoy this book is to pretend that the whole thing takes place in the kid's imagination.

I spent most of the book trying to figure out if the narrator was horrible, or if the writing was just so horrible that it was impossible for a narrator to salvage it. I'm pretty sure it was equal parts of each.

Also, it's incredibly jarring when someone doesn't know how to pronounce the word 'habitable.'

I could go on, but the bottom line is that I wish I hadn't ever listened to this book. It's too late for me, but you can still save yourself.

GREAT, BUT TINNY

I loved the story and finished it in one day, but it did take me a little bit to get used to the sound quality of the book. Was this recorded inside a pop can? If they fixed this, Terradox would be damn near perfect.

twisty story line

a very enjoyable story. Narrator Dina Pearlman did did an outstanding job her voice range was amazing. Also her command of dialects was extraordinary to say the least. It was very easy to get fully emersed in the tale.
The author Craig A Falconer brought forth an excellent story concept. this was for me well worth listening to.
Yes by all means purchase this Audible book, it's really great Sci-fi.

Obvious and unimaginative.

Significantly less good than Not Alone. This was a huge disappointment. I kept hoping that it would get interesting and then it ended.

Difficult to finish

It started off ok, but the characters were flat and the story lacked excitement and depth. I literally went through the last 5 chapters by 5 min slips and at 3x

Meh

I have rarely written a review but this book made me want to write one. I'll start off by saying that I liked Not Alone. I never got into this book though. The author constantly used compound complex sentences and after a while I found it exhausting to listen to. I felt like every other sentence had details that weren't necessary to tell the story. The narrator was OK but she didn't seem to put much inflection into the reading. Finally there was a constant echo in the file.

It wasn't a terrible story, but it wasn't great either. It was one of the few books where by the end I felt like I just needed to get through it.

Fun book and great performance

I really enjoyed the story, Falconer is one of my favorite new authors. Well developed characters and a fun plot. I also appreciate Pearlman's performance, she is a great vocal actor.

"RECOMMENDED" is to push the stuff no one wants?

What could Craig A. Falconer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It has about the speed of a autobiography. Maybe he should write these in the future.

How could the performance have been better?

This is an artificially stretched out book if you ask me.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NO redeeming qualities

Any additional comments?

I am more than half in and nothing really happened so far. All that did could have been explained in 1 chapter. Wow is that boring.....

Terranot

With little to no character development, poor prose, predictable plot, I tried to give this book a chance but it failed to rise above a very low bar. One star is giving this book too much credit.

High School attempt

This story line plodded along with dialogue that would never happen between adults. There was a big bad villain but he was never there. The kids knew as much as the adults and the adults needed help. Bad interaction between characters
