No story, nothing but character exploration of the Schmidt family. Don't waste your money or your time. Even if you're listening to the whole Human Division series, do yourself a favor and skip this one.
"Great Character-Driven Episode"
A great character-driven episode about one of the players on the Clarke, his family relations and his decision to choose his own path in life.
"It' Hart's book"
This one is about Hart, you get to know him and his life more.
Nothing regarding the union or so, it is mainly about Hart. This one is not too bad, give it a listen and you will know why not writing much here.
"Ok. Nice background on Hart . . . . . . . . . . . 😱"
5 stars great.
4 stars good.
3 stars OK.
Pure Scalzi with an set of intricate back stories to the family of Hart, a minor diplomat in "The Human Division." _________________😱
"Christmas with Schmidt"
Schmidt takes leave to visit his home planet during the holidays. If this was a sitcom this would be the Christmas episode that inevitably comes around once a year, but Scalzi injects it with enough sarcasm and dysfunctional family dynamics to make Rosanne proud. William Dufris does a great job as usual.
"Top Form SciFI"
I thought by the 10th episode the quality of this excellent and very entertaining fiction would fall off, I was wrong. I'm as thrilled by the 10th as I was by the 1st. The character development is deep, the storyline is gripping. This is as good as I've listened too in a long time.
"Excellent Story about Schmidt & Family"
Sure. I have listened to all Scalzi's stories more than once.
Yes. Excellent performance as expected. Well spoken and nicely animated.
"I liked getting to know Hart Schmidt's family"
The tenth episode in this series tells of Hart Schmidt returning home for the Harvest Day celebrations, and we discover what his home life is like and the political family he comes from.
This was a fun episode because we get a glimpse at the kind of family Hart comes from (his Dad is a powerful politician) and we learn how he really feels about his life. I also loved the mention back to the "dog" incident (as told in The Dog King) because that was one of my favorite episodes in the entire series so far.
William Dufris really is flawless in my opinion. I'm loving his voices, especially when he's given new characters to work with. I definitely plan to hunt out some more audiobooks narrated by him once I finish this series.
This isn't a bad story. It's just not unnecessary . He comes home for Harvest Day, has dinner with his family. And tells what happened in some of the first books! If you listened to the other books in this saga you'll ask Why? This is a unnecessary as a book. But worth the $0.69 I paid for it.
"It was ok, but!"
Story is good but needs to stop the constant "he said, she said" once you notice how often it becomes it thats all you hear.
