extremely educational. there is so much information that I'll need to listen to it all again, probably multiple times. I really appreciate the first-hand knowledge and experiences of the speaker as well as his depth as an expert on China. very well delivered. incredible value for this audiobook.

I like this type of sci-fi - complex and intellectually challenging. Seemingly well-researched in the theoretical technology it presents. Epic in the time scale it tackles - perhaps more so than any book I've read. Wonderfully narrated. My only criticism is that it began to lose me a bit in the end... I think due to a lack of personal development by the main characters over the course of quite a long book and the sheer sprawl of the tale. Some new characters were introduced towards the latter half that I just didn't care that much about. Overall very good though, I'd recommend to other sci-fi enthusiasts.

Loved it - but I can't get the sequels?

I enjoy the Star Wars universe but found recent movies to be disappointing. this is the first Star Wars book that I've ever read or listen to and I was very happy with the experience. The narration and character voicing was excellent, and while I felt the story could have been a bit deeper and more complex, it was good enough to keep me listening to the end. The biggest negative aspect of the book is it the sequels are not currently available in Australia through Audible.

awesome sci fi book

I found this book challenging in the best sense of the word. it made me consider ideas and perspectives that I had not thought before. the narrator did an excellent job and I feel she painted the characters as they should be. the book included many ingredients I look for in a science fiction book. I'm very pleased and would recommend this book to the science fiction enthusiasts

production quality was great, voice actor sounded just like sigorny Weaver. the story wasn't that deep compared to the sci fi books I tend to enjoy, but it was fun nonetheless.

Great sequel!

I really enjoy the Hyperion series. This was the first time I had listened to/read this sequel and I thought it was really great. I love the author's description of the world and there is a huge revelation of the plot in this chapter of the Hyperion saga. Once again the voice narration was great, however in contrast to the narration of the original audiobook of Hyperion, this sequel does not feature multiple voice actors but only one voice actor. However the voice actor does a great job at narrating different character voices and I could feel that he was really getting into the saga himself. Overall I just really enjoyed this audiobook and I would definitely recommend it for any sci-fi fiction fan.
