Hoo-wee. This was quite the experience. The themes are extreme, visceral and sometimes particularly graphic in the storytelling. The coming of age of quite a few characters are exceptionally told. 4 stars for everything because I found myself skipping forward over a few parts, and the audio quality was surprisingly inferior to other productions available. Jennifer Wiltsie however did a mindblowingly fantastic job at performing this, and I would give ten stars for performance specifically.

Be prepared to feel very strange and somewhat melancholic when thinking back on everything that happened in this story. I didn't feel negatively, but it certainly had my mind spinning and working hard to process the sheer volume of things that happened, which I think perhaps was Neal Stephenson's goal, or at least one of them.

Absolutely fantastic. Toby Longworth is the only suitable Mechanicus narrator, as far as I'm concerned. Brilliant story, incredible narration. Easy five stars all around.
