This is a great book! It really did grip me for the entire thing. The story races along and has lots of twists and surprises. The narrator is excellent and was perfect for the story.

I can honestly say this was one of the best books I’ve listened to in a while and I 100% recommend it if you love a thriller!

Not quite as strong as Part 1 but still good!

I enjoyed this and could not miss it after listening to Part 1. I’d say it’s not quite as strong as part 1, but still worth a listen. The only thing that has REALLY irritated me is that there doesn’t appear to be a part 3 to listen to so I will never know what happens to these characters. I truly loved the vision and concept of the future told here and it is extremely believable and interesting. A good listen, cracking performances and just a shame there is no part 3!

Epic! Written like a TV show

I really enjoyed this! A fantastic vision of the future and some really really cool ideas. The different narrators for each character takes a little bit of getting used to and it can’t be a little disorientating to start with. It’s a little bit of a slow burner but I really got into the characters after a while. There is no ‘2nd’ act where something twists or happens, it’s just a winding story of a vision of the future. But enjoyable and clever at times. I have also listened to Part 2. This part is much stronger tbh.
This has Great performances and good story.

Great story, well narrated and gripping. What more could you want. Mark Dawson does it again and proves he is an excellent storyteller. This really is worth a few hours of your time. If you love a great action thriller, you’ll love this.

I really enjoyed this audio book. It’s amusing, tragic, and engaging. I actually didn’t want it to
End... and that would be my only point about this book.. it sort of just ends. Really suddenly. Which is a shame. I would love to know what happens to these characters particularly Jess who Is hilarious.
Great listen, fun and well written, great performances and all round feel good book!

Excellent!

This book is a great listen. The story has some fantastic twists and turns and I loved the main character. It captures the atmosphere of living on the moon (no pun intended!) and is a rollercoaster all the way through. It has a great pace and some nail biting sequences. I’m not sure what other reviews are complaining about the narrator for, I thought she was brilliant and made the main character come alive. Really well read and flawless characterisation of all the key players. If you liked the Martian, you will like this. Worth a credit for sure. Nice one Andy Weir!

Not as good as “I let you go”

I liked this, and it was full of suspense and had some good twists. I read this on the back of I let you by the same author which was excellent, but this was not quite as good. Still had a good story and some good twists. Still worth a listen!

This was a great book! I really loved the story and the twists were brilliant. I really didn’t see most of them coming. It got a little bit over the top at the end with all the co-incidences but I enjoyed it so much I’m prepared to forgive it! It was a great listen and well worth downloading. Great book. If you love a thriller, this is a great example!

Good, if a little drawn out

I’ve really enjoyed this series and was fascinated by the concept of this world. It was a brilliant idea. The first two books were great and ran along at great pace exploring all the ideas and horrors of this world. To say I didn’t fully enjoy this book would be unfair, but it felt like it was 2 or 3 hours too long (and I listen on 1.5x speed!) I felt like there was lots of filler and the story laboured along trying desperately to get to the point. I had to read it to find out what happens to the character and I suppose I was satisfied with the ending having invested hours and hours listening to the story. Was it as good as the previous two.. no... it just didn’t seem to have such a compelling story line...
I even got a little bored of the bloodshed and battles which seemed to be dragged out at times. Ok it’s a great trilogy.. I would recommend it, but be prepared to be a little impatient for the ending as it is read. (Faultless performance as always from the Narrator)

Great concept!

This is a good book, I enjoyed it and it’s got a few twists and turns that are great! There are a few bits about the concept that are a little difficult to believe and you could pick holes in those but taken for what it is, a work of fiction, it’s an entertaining read.
