    Book hit on every level for me as an outdoorsman who loves sci-fi. Narrator was highly intellegent and had a great interpretation with nice tonality the audio quality was short of perfection. I yelled "Yes. Amazing, Perfect, DEATHWORRRRRLLLLD!!!" and such nonsense when it ended arter experencing a wide spectrum of deep emotions on the journey. Highly recommended.

    A real space verses land S/F. I would like to listen to this one again, and maybe find the real book and just sit down and use my mind to travel.
