Really loved this story. Plenty of twists and surprises. Some things I expected but others I really didn't. Enjoyed the reader's voice in this one too.

Not as good as later works but still worth reading

It's interesting to read this first work and realise how far Brandon's storytelling ability has come. It's a good story but not great like some of his later books. I enjoyed the mystery of this book but found the pacing problematic. It was very slow in some areas and then extremely rapid towards the end. It was a shame not to have left a little more time to explore the potential of what was discovered at the end.

The characters were interesting but not multidimensional enough in terms of personality. The main character overly optimistic throughout and one had guy too simplistically evil. The character Galladon was annoying because of his constant use of the words kolo and sule. It would have been funny as a temporary thing but because he's so present throughout the story and says the words so much it gets old fast.

The voice actor was a bad choice. Whenever he was narrating it sounded like the kind of upbeat weird pacing of an advertisement voiceover. His voices for certain characters was good but many others really bad. I felt he also got many emotions wrong while he was doing voices, often sounding far too upbeat. His narration really spoiled the story for me personally and I'd recommend you just read the book instead.

Great

It's a fascinating exploration of the history of humankind as well as an interesting insight into the present and future. The performance is excellent. Some areas of the book related to politics and ethics are a little too biased which is why I remove a star for story. That's nitpicking though, it's great.

Trop lent

Le narrateur était ok mais l'histoire était ennuyeuse. C'était difficile à finir. Il y avait quelques idées intéressantes mais l'intrigue est trop lente, les personnages ne sont pas assez développés et la majeure partie de l'histoire n'est pas intéressante.
