I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I struggled to take my headphones. Deep, insightful, scary, playful, vast, imaginative and sometimes honestly laugh out loud funny. I strongly recommend this to anyone with a sense of adventure and wonder.

Brief but Good

Everything you could want to know in 25 mins. Not sure why you would need 4 hours unless you really needed it drilled in to you.

I’m so glad I listened to this. So powerful yet subtle. The main character is so perfect yet so flawed. I cried in the end.

Some will not enjoy this. I feel sorry for these people.

I’m struggling to review this, as this book is potentially a masterwork of character development, but I’ve got to be honest from about the 35 hour mark I couldn’t wait for it to end.

I didn’t expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It was a great entertaining listen

Hmm. The protagonist is a petty smuggler, with almost infallible skill as a welder (boring!) who always seems to be able to solve even the most hopeless situation if she racks her brains for just a moment longer.

Rosario Dawson did a good job but there’s only so well you can do when the script is kinda trash.

Read if you are enthralled by low gravity welding capers.

This is getting abandoned

17 hours in and this one is getting abandoned. I'm finding myself tuning out for 5/10 minutes at a time and I can't even be bothered to rewind to catch up. I was getting so doubtful of my own taste until I logged onto goodreads and found many people articulating exactly what I was feeling.

Please note that the premise is very misleading. The plot line revolves heavily around reincarnation and has huge, unbroken and incredibly boring religious theory dialogues. Yes, there is some element of alternate history here, but this is a book that spends about 1/5th of it's time in a post-death pre-reincarnation judgement realm, and is about 1/5th punishing dialogue on religious theory and self-satisfying social commentary.

Actually, the alternate history is just about as unimaginative as the religious theory is boring. There is actually more of a parallel history occurring, as the timeline of technological development and world events follows a very similar arc as our own reality.

The novel is incredibly well researched and very intelligent, but I'm sorry Kim, it falls so far short of its premise's potential.

Also, Bronson Pinchot... man you are one mind numbing bloke. I honestly feel bad writing that because you obviously tried so hard on this, but I just couldn't connect with you.
