Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ocelot4 | 2/6/2014

    " I listened to this book on tape about 8 years ago and it has stuck with me. It was intricate and absorbing. The details of the plot and characters have faded in my memory but the questions and possibilities raised have not left me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew | 12/29/2013

    " Read like a bad Samuel Delany. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kei | 12/20/2013

    " The interweaving in this is incredible. So are the strands of world he created. I found myself wondering if he had written the full books excerpted, or just the excerpts, or... because some of them I wanted to read from the pieces. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jorgen | 12/16/2013

    " Clearly Bear had a idea he wanted to share, about identity and sentience. To do this he wove together 4 or 5 different stories, but sadly it meant that none of the stories got enough time for me to care about them or the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Florin Pitea | 9/27/2013

    " An excellent example of post-cyberpunk fiction, blending nanotechnology, virtual reality and police investigation. Recommended. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dawn | 9/15/2013

    " I just could not get into this book at all. The writing style was frustratingly archaic and the characters so far removed from this reality as to not excite much interest. I finally gave up after 10 chapters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 8/26/2013

    " If you think the definition of self is interesting, or loops, you'll like this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brett | 7/14/2013

    " Tedious and pretentious. Too much insipid technobabble and bad poetry to go with some good ideas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Springuyen | 4/17/2013

    " One of the rare books that I've read many times. Haunting and strange. One of the best books ever written - imho. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Keefe | 4/2/2013

    " Formatted with interesting (and remarkably effective) alternate grammar, esp. around speech/thought, Queen of Angels well-written. And fun, if you can dig on a murder mystery with a heavy dose of psychology. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz Brau | 2/4/2013

    " freakin' aweseome. this is a definite buy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dev | 1/21/2013

    " A great mix of Blade Runner meets Sam Spade. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clyde | 1/16/2013

    " Surprisingly, I didn't like this as much as some other Greg Bear novels. Probably just me. "

    " Listened to on iPhone (18 hr, 41 min, 52 sec) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandyboy | 12/29/2012

    " to dense for me. still good but too dense "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 4/28/2012

    " I really didn't care to much for this book. While I do enjoy hard scifi this one just seemed to drag and have a really hollow story line and a shallow character set. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marion Hill | 4/21/2012

    " A good, solid sci-fi novel from one of the genre's best writers! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Matt | 2/17/2012

    " Confusing mess from Bear. A lot of the same concepts are better utilized in his other work. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Budd | 2/10/2012

    " I could not get into this book. The characters did not draw me in and hold me. The language was sometimes confusing and you get these + signs that I never quite got. I read about 100 pages of this and put it down. It may finish stronger but to me it was not worth the time to get there. "
