If you want a book read by a half literate robot..

What would have made Beyond the Gate better?

The author has no idea how to communicate the atmosphere, he sounds jilted, as though Captain Kirk were narrating the solemn history of a star, really horrid reading. I love the book, but not the audio version, very very disappointed.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beyond the Gate?

NA

What didn’t you like about Peter Ganim’s performance?

Nothing, he did horribly.

What character would you cut from Beyond the Gate?

none

Great series but the Audible is missing chapter 32

This is one of my favorite series and I saw it was on sale and jumped on the deal, I finished Beyond the Gate then started book 3 only to find something missing. Chapter 32 (which I recommend stopping by a library and reading) closes out book 2 and is the opening into book 3. By the audible book alone, you'll spend days wondering when are they going to explain about so and so. So just a warning that the chapter is missing, Peter Ganin does an excellent job bringing the story across and with the discounted price, I highly recommend it.

Poor Effort Stretched Out Over Sixteen Hours

The first book in this series was quite enjoyable for a young adult audience. This book had six hours of good material in it, and it was stretched out over sixteen hours. The characters ceased to be interesting and when one main character dies, it is a relief. I only completed listening to this book because I have already purchased the third book and I wanted to listen to the transition work.
