Too much smut for a book of this sort. I'd gladly exchange smut for science world building content Too cheesy: boy from the wron..Show More »g side of the tracks meets princess, blah, blah, blah Too stereo-typed: I guess the cold war is back on, all Russian sounding people are evil No diversity: There are only white people in the future
The narrator is solid and does a very large range of accents very well indeed. He's very easy to listen to, I wish he'd read game of thrones books, then I would purchase them
The writing is not terrible, it's good enough to be entertaining but not good enough to have made any impact on the reader/listener. It was entertaining enough for me to get the next book. I don't feel that author has added anything to the genre.
Since I listened to Steven Moss's "Fear the Sky" I am yet to listen to another Scifi book that comes close in terms of writing and story quality. I wait impatiently for "Fear the Survivors"
1. I thought I was buying a science fiction book, turns out it was just erotica. 2. This book is condescending towards women, an..Show More »d makes it clear that they are inferior - that they constantly need men to solve all their problems. 3. The hero of this book is unrealistic and comes off as a complete douche-bag, after the first couple of chapters I was hoping that he would just die. He justifies his misogynistic attitude towards women by comparing himself to monsters - well I'm not that bad so I must be good! 4. The plot is non-existent and nothing interesting happens, everything is totally predictable - just like bad porn. 5. To say the villains are 2-D cardboard cut-outs is an insult to cardboard. They struggled to have even a single dimension. 6. The story is ham-fisted.
The narrator was good, but what is the point when the story was so terrible?
This book is a 13 year old boy's wet dream ... who wants to read that? If it was printed this story would be a candidate for book burning, not because it is controversial but because it is just so lame.
