Excellent!!!

(4 Sterne)

All around great book to read or listen to, not much way out there fiction in the science side other than anti gravity drive for space travel. Many another author in the SCI-FI genre has gone much further in their abuse of their reader's grip on real Science. Great match of voice and story flow. Good solid plot and great storyline ending, and, No, I'm not giving my fellow listeners any spoiler alerts on this book! This is one book that deserves a full cover to cover read on a long lazy weekend. I'm not placing it into my usual read and forget file as I wish to listen to it again a few times more !!! I'm not giving it 5 stars out of pure selfishness, I am greedy enough to wish it had been way longer or even a trilogy !!!

Secret of the Ninth Planet

(3,5 Sterne)

Surprising find, held my attention. Reminiscent of a young adult Heinlien novel, as if written by Heinlein as a teenager. Narrator had a smooth uninflected voice, somewhat like a computer, but easy to listen to. I'm thankful to him for enriching my life.

great for falling asleep to

(3 Sterne)

I really love this author and am a huge science fiction fan, however, I barely made it through 2 chapters before I fell asleep listening to the reader. His voice is a continuous yawning sound...soothing... but he has a speaking pattern that doesn't change no matter how long the sentences are and no indication of when the characters are talking or performing actions.

Excellent sci-fi

(5 Sterne)

Good old fashioned hiney kicking when a bunch of aliens try to steal the sun's warmth. Neat perspectives on what might exist on each planet as a life form. Excellent reader, he always does a nice job with his recordings. Thank you!

Well worth a listen
