It's an Addiction
Ok, this is the 17th book in the series that I've read. Each has been a journey you want to finish but dread to end. There's a little more dry land in this one than in some others and some romance but it is always interesting how O'Brien weaves in the politics, science and everyday life of the period in such a way to make it fascinating and so gosh darn believable. The guy must have read every possible contemporary accounts of the period!

Near the End of the Series
I have listened to all but one of these books (not number 20 yet) and it is depressing to be coming to the end. This book is, once again, well read by Patrick Tull and is yet another classic story. If you've started here, you started near the end of a long series. If you started earlier, there is nothing I have to say to convince you to listen to this one, too.
