Golden Son: Book II of the Red Rising Trilogy

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Pierce Brown

Narrated By: Tim Reynolds

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: January 2015

Summary:

With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation. Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within. A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices.

    The narrator was good. A must read series that I hope is brought properly to the big screen!

    First, let me say that I find the voice of the protagonist to be very emotional and beautiful. I don't know, however, if this is due to the writing or due to the fact that the narrator is simply outstanding. He embodies the voice of Darrow, gives it so much depth and feeling. And since most of the book is in Darrows voice, it has quite an impact. Pierce Brown writes the emotional, loving parts extremely well. It definitely hits a cord. However, I found large parts of this book to be almost boring. For some reason, I couldn't really get into the battle scenes and I'm not a big fan of politics, which is what this book is based on. But I do feel that the characters are developed and round, having inner conflicts and flaws. The problem is, it sometimes makes them unrelatable. For the most part, Darrow's relationships with the other characters simply drove me into sadness and frustration. It's weird, it's almost as if this book is bipolar. Some parts of it are heartfelt and gripping, while others are just cruel and violent and tedious. I am left with mixed feelings about this book. Having said that, it definitely gets you feeling something, and it kind of stays with you. 3.5 stars from me.

    Pierce Brown possessed with tremendous ability to weave futuristic tech into a compelling human interest tale of a heroic champion of the underdog.

    This book will have your adrenaline going from the moment you start listening until the end. I thought my girlfriend was going to break up with while I was hooked on this book, just walking around the house with earbuds in living on Mars and listening to the REAPER, the Helldiver of Lykos change the tides for all colors.

    great book read by a guy with a great accent. I don't know if how Darrow sounds is the narrators actual accent but either way it's music to my ears
