Amazing! Great book. Not as good as Eragon but it is close!
I loved the Inheritance Cycle books. I loved this one bar the swearing. I’m not a prude, but I felt the swearing was excessive. I was a bit disappointed in the author.
Narrator did a great job, but overall the story was just meh. I really liked the beginning. There was some action in some parts, and while I don't always need action. I just found a lot of the characters not interesting.
Amazing she should do more like this!!! I absolutely enjoyed it. HOPEFULLY the next book continues where this book left off.
not sure how I felt about this book
Meh, no original ideas needs inspiration.
amongst the best science fiction I've ever read
There are absolutely worst books out there in the world, but this is as uninteresting a book as I've ever finished? It's like such a perfect C minus that you hate it all the more for what it lacks than something that you wouldn't have bothered to pick up in the first place.
Good space romp
I LOVED the Inheritance Cycle and while I understand Christopher Paolini was writing a ‘space opera’ which I enjoyed thoroughly at times I was overwhelmed with the fighting. It’s just not what interests me. Typically I won’t read sci-fi or fantasy based on wars and a lot of fighting but I wanted to read this book. Glad I did. The swearing was way over the top, and frankly not necessary. If Christopher does a hybrid between Inheritance and To Sleep … hmmm that might be something!
this book is absolutely amazing! Jennifer Hale adds so much depth to this book with her amazing narration.
I happen to be a very good fan of Christopher paolini. I read his first book and all of the following. his character development is freaking awesome. The intricacies of his stories is off the charts! I'm a huge fan.
This excellent space opera will appeal to fans of hard science fiction. It has similarities to the Culture novels of Iain M. Banks and The Mote in God's Eye by Pournelle and Niven. The novel has great worldbuilding, memorable characters, thrilling action, and good pacing. The narration is a delightful performance.
One complaint: in the first appendix, the narrator pronounces some mathematics words incorrectly.
I couldn't get into the book at all.
I have red prior books by author and loved them. this I did not finish, red 1/3 of story, just didn't flow at points.
