An Interesting Sci-Fi Story
Having not read the first story in this series – I was jumping into this half-blind. But, having read through some of the other reviews of this book (I usually try and avoid that but I couldn’t wrap my head around how I felt) it sounds like this is sort of a retelling of book one, but in the opposite direction.
Now, having not read the first book didn’t seem to affect my review or feelings on this since it was well explained and written out. I honestly thought it might be a book one since it had that “opening” feeling with only a few parts that made me feel like we were already in another story.
Morrow’s tale is an interesting one and I found myself enjoying it. It feels weird saying that, but some stories, even if I give them a 3.5 aren’t that enjoyable. This one was. It was entertaining from beginning to end.
The biggest area that I felt this book was missing was character development. Even though I said it felt like a book one, it still felt like it was missing some of the reasons why characters were doing the things that they were doing. That only bothered me when I genuinely couldn’t figure out why certain things were going on.
The narrator in this is it’s largest strong point. This is my third title by Bennett and it will not be my last. His narration in all three books I’ve listened to have added to the story in some way.
Overall, a pretty good book that kept me entertained from beginning to end.
