Publisher's Summary

Beware of creating your worst enemy.

All Joe Colsco wanted out of life was a reasonably interesting job supporting a quiet, comfortable suburban lifestyle, eventually a small family, and time to pursue hobbies. Instead, a freak accident casts him naked onto a beach of another planet inhabited by humans with technology circa 1700. In time, Joe, now known as Yozef Kolsko, makes the difficult acceptance of a new life, has a respectable position in his new society, and is married with a child on the way. But all is not rosy. He has become embroiled in a struggle beyond any dream he could have had - or any nightmare.

The Narthani are a militant society intent on subjugating the Caedelli, the people he's come to identify with. Despite Yozef's hope to focus his life on transferring scientific knowledge and supporting a quiet life, he finds his life's direction moving beyond his control. As his actions and ideas become more important in resisting the Narthani, he reluctantly finds himself dragged into leadership roles he doesn't believe himself qualified - including efforts to unite the Caedelli clans.

The transformation of Joseph Colsco to Yozef Kolsko is about to take another step. Unwittingly, the Narthani themselves are creating an opponent unlike any they have ever faced, an enemy beyond their conceptions.

    Story
    "This Series Just Gets Better"
    What did you like most about Heavier Than a Mountain?

    The story is moving at its own pace and will not be hurried. We are being treated to someone trying to revolutionize a society one step at a time. The characters are rounded and being developed they exist separately from the main character. You grow to care for the characters; their lives and dreams.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I understand what is going on. In so many books that have battles or fights someone has gone to great lengths to put a battle plan forward that might look good on paper but when someone is reading it, it's quite appalling. With the battle scenes in these books I can follow what is happening and I'm gripped.


    What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    This is a pointless question. If I read the book instead of listening to it I imagine the voices would sound different. Mr Davis has saved me from this awful prospect. There was some seriously sloppy editing which is quite noticeable when you listen to the book. Initially when the book started my heart sank as it sounded like he was narrating with a bucket on his head. Fortunately, that doesn't last too long, but really shouldn't happen at all. However, I like his narration there is enough variation between the characters for me to be able to distinguish individual characters. He also does good female voices where there is variation and they don't all sound whiny.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I hate this question please stop asking it.


    Any additional comments?

    At over 21 hours I love that these sequels are getting longer. The next book is hopefully out before the end of the year, please try and make the audible book happen at the same as the ebook.

    "So cool"

    This series is probably one of my all time favorites. So gripping. So alien. So human. I love all of it. You will, too.

    What about Jonathan Davis’s performance did you like?

    Jonathan Davis has a great character range, not forced, doesn't detract from the listen.

    Its generally a very interesting and fun concept. Anyar got Kolsko, Earth got DaVinci? Awaiting the next in the series.

    "Excellent, hard to put it down"

    The narrator of this series does an amazing job. at least in the top 3 to 5 of the many I have heard. the storyline is fascinating and well done. Great characters and just the right amount of minutiae on the technical aspects.

    "Great story, getting better each book"

    This author knows how to write, bringing to the table a lot of his own knowledge, and weaving it into a completely immersive world.
    I really enjoyed this and the last two stories, and each inspired me to learn more about Joseph's insights by reading books he actually references in the story.
    Can't recommend this book more and the series as a whole is worth an investment.
    I can't say there are many books I'd read (listen) to again but this is one. I'd re listen to the whole series just to get more.
    Can't wait for the next book...
    By the way narrator 10 out of 10.

    "great story, audio needs work"

    book is great but with little compression its difficult to listen to, as quite passages are a whisper, if turned up has the louder passages screaming. very frustrating.
