Summary

2067 was the year I died for the first time. It was painful. Had I known how often I'd be expected to die over the next several millennia, I might have made a stronger effort to stay dead. The year actually started off rather nice. I finished my PhD in high energy physics and was promoted to lieutenant commander in the United States Air Force. My first posting after the promotion was to the Lunar One Air Base where I worked with my father, Dr. Robert Kimbridge, on "The Project". "The Project" was our name for a VASIMR Ion Drive interplanetary space craft that used thorium LFTR reactors for both shielding and power. Capable of a sustained point-one G of acceleration, our prototype was expected to make the Mars run in less than a week. By the end of November the ESX Arizona was ready for her first trial runs and I was her pilot. History has an odd way of repeating itself.

Uncounted millennia ago the uncreated Creator reached forth a hand and touched a series of disparate universes. The touch set in motion ripples that created life in the Creator's image...a life that was self-aware...a life that aspired to be more than it was...a life that sought to create in its own right. Love and fear walked hand in hand. Thus the stage was set for an epic conflict that would span the universes. These are the adventures of one brave soul and her quest to protect all life. These are the Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles.

Great book shame about the narration

I really enjoyed reading this and the others on Kindle, so when the chance came to listen to them I jumped and bought them, big mistake.

I enjoyed Cruz's portrayal in the original Stargate film but his narration skills leave a lot to be desired IMO.

I am sure the Kindle version does not spell a selection of words wrong, consistently, such as petabyte. Cruz says petrabyte for instance. He also says Admirality not Admiralty, jeez it sounds stupid every time he says it. These are just 2 of the string of badly pronounced words that have spoilt these books for me.

He also talks too fast, RSVP is the proper way to narrate. Rythm, Speed, Volume and Pitch. Get those right and you have excellent narration, but sadly not in this case.

Slow down!!!

If you could sum up Inception in three words, what would they be?

interesting

Any additional comments?

Slow down! The narrator rushed through the story at such a pace it made it hard to follow.

Good book

Loved the book, but the inconsistent volume of the narrator made it hard to listen to. Hopefully the next book has a different narrator or more consistent volume.

Poor story

Oh, what a miracle that every problem and challenge is cured by an alien AI. The main character is flat and boring.
