Engaging, but rehashing aliens for a different POV

Fun to listen to. The soundsscape and voice acting were good. The story felt like it was trying to be nostalgic by inserting scenes from aliens, although I liked the new parts from the characters on lv426.
I will definitely listen to it again.

Yet another corker from Brandon Sanderson. This enormous audiobook kept me gripped from start to finish, and I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.

An aside: The sheer size of this epic audiobook (45.5 hours) does make me wonder why the publishers of the Game of Thrones audiobooks cannot release them in one purchase per book such as this, when Brandon Sanderson's epic is fully 15 hours longer...

Good story, poor narrative consistency.

Although it is a bit poor of Audible to split a one-book epic tale into two halves of two downloads each, this is an interesting listen... provided you can get over the narration. Mr Dotrice clearly couldn't decide whether to use character voices or not, and in my opinion he should have just stuck to his normal voice. He also sometimes used the character's voice when reading between the spoken parts, and this annoyed the heck out of me. Unfortunately, the Audible version hasn't gripped me enough on the first listen that I would rush to buy the second half of the book.
