I absolutely Love this book! The story is a great tale of adventure and search for vengeance. As always expertly read by Mark Nelson who in my opinion is the best narrator around!
The narration was great! The book itself was a different look. It's focus was on how people can progress and/or regress, and there was lots of politics. Wasn't as light or fast as other space novels, but enjoyable nonetheless. (And it does leave lots of loose ends.)
Good space adventure
The story is good, a little hard to follow at times. The good guy isn't so good. The book is expertly read, top notch.
Book was really good and enjoyed the person reading it only complaint is that it ended too early I mean great ending to the story being told, but was so wrapped up in all the characters that I wanted to know what happened to everyone after the story was over. Book let me with allot of questions at the end.
Excellent revenge adventure!
Mark Nelson is one of the masters of bringing each and every character to life through distinct, unchanging voices. Thank-you for the time you donate to LibriVox!
excellent reading, interesting ideas about society
Enjoyed yet another sci fi book previously unknown to me, read by this most superb narrator. Lots of very pointed conversations in this book about ideas that are still relevant, and will be for centuries.
Overall the reading was excellent, and I have no complaints as to pronunciation or tone. The story is interesting, and a joy to listen to, despite a few instances of slow progress and seemingly lack of direction. Well done and thanks for contributing.
Good story, interesting and worth the listen, but the narration did not rise to the complexity of the story. The narration wasn't bad, but the reader has a very limited range that stays in a "matter of fact " tone as if constantly saying "did you hear they have electric cars now? Guess these new fangled contraptions are here to stay by golly"... The tone does not match a story that discusses political intrigue, Hitler, and nuclear annihilation.
