.. a Murderbot NOVEL and what a joy it is was to listen too. If you’ve enjoyed the previous novellas you are going to love this.

Narration was good.

As the author warns at the beginning of the book this is not a blow by blow account of WW2 but series of anecdotes from the people whose lives were involved with the Spitfire aircraft. All these stories make for a fascinating listen and I look forward to buying the authors book on the Lancaster when it’s released.

Narration was well done.

More Mecha battles..

If you’ve enjoyed the first two books in the series then you are already onboard to enjoy this rather satisfying conclusion to the series. More of a thriller than the previous two books as conspiracies are revealed, but don’t worry there are still Mecha battles. Really enjoyed it.

Narration was good, you can’t go wrong when Emily Woo Zeller narrates a book.







Well if you’ve got this far..

..this book will probably not disappoint you. More adventuring with the Ness sisters. The only downside is the ending felt rushed.

Narration was good.

I picked this up cheap on a sale and was not really expecting to enjoy it. How wrong I was.

A marvellous tale well told with just a sliver of a genre trope.

Narration was good.

I really enjoyed this book but there were times I was shouting “just shoot them FFS” or “why don’t you just tell them?” at my phone. The plot is dependent on the characters getting information or coming to a realisation and then not telling anybody when it would actually help..grrrr!

Still compelling characters and a twisty, twisty plot kept me guessing right to the end.

Narration by the two narrators was also good.

Brilliant!

In this book the author explains the ‘measurement problem’ that quantum mechanics has and some of alternative interpretations that have been devised to explain it rather than ignore it like the dominant Copenhagen Interpretation does. The book also covers the history of QM and gives the reader a more nuanced look at the Bohr vs Einstein debate.

Recommended.

Finally got round to giving this book a listen and it was worth the wait. Agnieszka is a great protagonist and as her relationship with the dragon evolves fascinating story is laid out by the the author.

Narration was good.

A time travel story that is original is a rare thing these days and the author delivers a great story.
