    Description

    Escaping conflict on Earth, an idealistic group of settlers arrive on a distant planet - Pax - with plans for a perfect society.

    The world they discover is rich with life, but this is not the Eden they were hoping for. The plants on Pax are smart - smart enough to domesticate, and even slaughter, its many extraordinary animals.

    To survive, the colonists realise that they must strike bargains of their own. But if they are to make Pax their home, they must go further, searching for a way to communicate and coexist with these utterly alien intelligences.

    Interesting concept and simply a good read

    Interesting view on alien intelligence and just something slightly different for a change.
    I see some find it very dark but I did not. The story grows out from that. I would assume being colonists on an alien planet trying simply to survive would be harrowing at times and rewarding at others. The book simply describes that and it's effects on people.
    The narration was good and did not get in the way of some novel ideas on alien intelligence and human interaction with it.
    Take a chance. Read the book. I am glad I did.
    What can I really say more than I really enjoyed the book.

    Dark, slow and violent

    Struggled to finish the book as the main characters keep changing, generation after generation, each living in a society as hopeless and dark as the one before.

    Good Story hobbled by bad narration

    I have really enjoyed the story, but had a lot of trouble listening to the monotonous droning that was Caitlin Davies narration. Every character, though having different voice tones, share the exact same repeating inflections and monotonous droning syllables that make engaging listening really difficult. Daniel Thomas May was better and pleasant to listen to.

    Enjoyed the story, audio production not so much

    Enjoyed the different perspective! The speakers are hard to understand at times, and every so often you can hear ambient noise. At first I've suspected my neighbors, but it's the production.

    One of the best books of 2018

    I read it, and then I heard it.
    It was a joy twice times.
    The speakers added some depth of their own and it made it a very pleasant listening experience. 10/10 would recommend it to everyone.
