Good story

(3.5 stars)

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. The plot was highly improbable but interesting and nicely paced. And it made me think. Many thanks to the narrator.

(4 stars)

good ballance between psychological sci fi and adventure. nicely read.

Great story!

(5 stars)

Most of us have parts of ourselves we'd rather not have exposed to the world, and we shut them away. Imagine if we had to reverse those parts, shut away ourselves and have the hidden parts take over. This is exactly what happens in this story. It is a conceptual masterpiece with a nice bit of sci-fi weaved in for a great story. Mark Nelson does a great job bringing this story to life. Thanks Mark!

fun and interesting, fantastically read

(5 stars)

Though predictable in a lot of ways, the premise of the book and the way it progresses is enjoyable. Of course, Mark Nelson elevates 50's era sci-fi one star just by the way he reads it.

Identify and Identify lost and found.

(5 stars)

Read with an open mind. The lead character is it which or all the different people. The end/start is satisfying. A good read. Good for all the characters in this absorbing tale.

Bravo from Borneo

I enjoyed this story, so very well read by Mark Nelson, as usual. Lots of layers and a sense of expedition, even a love interest. You got to love old-school sci-fi.

(5 stars)

Another great read from Mark Nelson. The book is a little difficult to get into at first but gets clearer as you go on and ends up being pretty good.

(5 stars)

I loved this audiobook. it was a lot of fun and the worldbuilding was clever. Typically sexist for its time but a great story and my favourite reader.
