Extremely engaging, well written, well performed. The voices are believable and empathetic. The main character - Ivan - is an everyman that the listener wants to hear more of.

Loved every second of it - felt like I was genuinely in the action as it happend. Ending was bittersweet, left me hoping there was a next chapter.

5*

Cracking good read!

Loved reading the books - and thoroughly enjoyed the audible version. Smoothly voiced - all characters believable and engaging.

The biggest issues stopping a large company from excelling at their strategic goals - Silos, Politics and Turf Wars. Just as true today as when it was written. Narrated by the author - so you know he speaks with authority and passion on the subject. Having experienced all three of these issues in my own corporate experiences, I found this work entertaining as well as informative and deeply relevant.

Narrator was very good with voices and expression. The story took a *long* time to get anywhere meaningful which made rhe fast paced ending a bit jarring and dislocated from the very slow, meandering majority of the book. The heroine was hard to sympathise or to associate with, although the Ajax himself is loveable and roguish. So overall a fairly predictable but still lovely Heyer adventure.

Loved it! Extremely relevant. Has given me words to illuminate the path back from the dark place that is my current struggle with Shame and never being good enough.

Loved it!

First class narrator - his voice is so easy to listen to, & he expresses the cadence of the story with authenticity and warmth, and carries the humour of the character of Mark Whatney perfectly. The story is different enough from the movie that I stayed engaged and interested throughout, even though I could probably recite the movie by heart.
I love the world depicted here - humanity banding together to rescue someone stranded far from home. An astronaut isolated and reliant on himself and his ingenuity to survive. Technology accurately depicted and used thoughtfully and well rather than being hijacked by the tech, which can happen in some sci-fi. Story pays homage to the philosophy behind Star Trek, whilst being totally original and fresh.

A modern masterpiece - worth every accolade and 5* review it's earned.
