Uller Uprising

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.1 stars; 210 reviews)

Uller Uprising is the story of a confrontation between a human overlord and alien servants, with an ironic twist at the end. Like most of Piper's best work, Uller Uprising is modeled after an actual event in human history; in this case the Sepoy Mutiny (a Bengal uprising in British-held India brought about when rumors were spread to native soldiers that cartridges being issued by the British were coated with animal fat. The rebellion quickly spread throughout India and led to the massacre of the British Colony at Cawnpore.). Piper's novel is not a mere retelling of the Indian Mutiny, but rather an analysis of an historical event applied to a similar situation in the far future. (Summary from John F. Carr's introduction)

Bad reading

(3 stars)

Take a breath now and then guys: it isn't a race to see how fast you can get the words on the page out of your mouth. The story is great though, I really love H. Beam Piper's work. Maybe they can get a better reader to rerecord the audio at some point.

pretty cool story.

(4 stars)

Not a fan of the mixed narrators. but it was free and well read for the most part. some need to slow down. love the fact everyone smokes in these old books.

An old favourite now in audio!

(4.5 stars)

This classic sci-fi novel has been a favourite of mine since I first owned it around 1983. Now I have found it free on Librivox and enjoyed listening to it while doing household chores. Having multiple narrators read different chapters is a different approach but it kept me guessing on how the next chapter would sound.

Story is good

(3 stars)

I had to stop listening. As others has said, readers were reading too fast to understand. Appreciate readers taking time but need to slow down.

To sum it up, well worth a listen if you like classic sci fi For more of my reviews of free audio visit http://FreeAudioReview.blogspot.com/

This is a nicely read book

(5 stars)

Piper is a very intense author. I think this a really good set of readers.

Kinda feels like it's missing something

(4 stars)

Maybe a publicize radio rebuff prior to execution.
