There were a number of times I thought the story was about to wrap up in a fantastic ending only for another twist in the story.

Very enjoyable throughout. Well passed and well read.

Excellent performance of the Norse legends

Great naration by the author. I really enjoyed Neil Gaiman's telling of this stories.

Having run into Norse mythology in Stargate and of cause Marvel, it way nice to get closer to the source material.

My favourite storey is when the gods want a wall built. only Loki could go that far.

Not as good as the first book, but still great.

Not as good as the first book, but still very enjoyable. More focus on the Martians, but I'd have like more detail about them. Hopefully book 3 will provide this.

A great trio of stories

Usual narration, with the narrator doing different voices, but done to a good standard.

Other than the films, I've not read much Dredd, but I enjoyed all the stories. I suspect there may be some spoilers from the comics. Would like to listen to other books in the series.

A great adaption

Great performance with background music we know from Jeff Wayne. An expansion of the story from the musical, giving more details to some of the characters.

A fine story. Not a great piece but an enjoyable way to spend 10 hours. I'll be checking out the other books in the series (when they're on offer).

Classic Star Trek, pre-reboot

A classic Star Trek story based after "The Undiscovered Country". An enjoyable story which fleshes out Sarek's character, but also introduces or re-introduces Kirk's nephew Peter. Kirk and Spoke are also pulled into the story, but I'm sure that's more for book sales rather then taking the story forward.

The story is entertaining and has a few paths which from the start you know will come together at the end. Not a hard one to follow, but entertaining.

The narration is to the usual Audible standard. Some of the voices the narrator uses are weird, but at least helps to differentiate the characters.

Well this one surprised me. I wasn't expecting too much, but the story is good and it was well performed,

If you want more then just a narrator trying to make different voices for each character, then this is perfect.

A classic which is ageing very well.

I can't believe this was published in 1932!, feels more like 1970s sci-fi..

At first I though "this book is from the '30s, it'll be odd not to refer back to the computer revolution", but it doesn't need to. Handles it very cleverly. This is a book which in a sense is timeless. It applies today as much as it did then. This is a real classic.

The narration by Micheal York is OK, not up to today's Audible standards, but I manged to listen to the whole book in 2 days.

Good story, excellently read.

I haven't gotten round to reading the Martian, but have seen the movie. This book is like its from a different source. Not that it's bad in any way, just different, but how closely can you compare a movie the a book, especially when they're different stories.

I listened to this in less then two days, could not stop listening to it (other then in the shower or when asleep). Loved it.

A great story which just happened to be on the Moon.So well written it could have been based anywhere.

I'm no great engineer/specialist but no great leaps of science needed to push the story forward. Sci-fi, but well grounded.
