Not good as the last one

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I felt like this story was essentially the same as the last one, but dragged out in a more tedious way. I don't think this was time well spent.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Since I listened to this series back-to-back, I hated that they switched narrators. I didn't think the last one was that great, but I liked this one even less than last time.

Could you see Crux being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

They could make the plot line into a TV series, but they'd probably end up re-writting most of it, kind of how they did with Wayward Pines.

Not as good as first book of the series

The story became a series of action sequences and with rather implausable abrupt and unsatisfying end. I really wish I'd just stuck to having read the first book. The narrator here was also lacking giveing stilted odd sccents to characters we already kniw and doing a really poor job with the screams and groans of female characters.

The second season of a TV Show that lost its way

Any additional comments?

I'd enjoyed Nexus enough to give in to the hanging ending and pick up Crux. Some of the pace and imagination had gone. I'm going out on a limb in terms of cultural references here but it felt like the second season of Heroes. The first book had genuinely interesting characters but this tends to fall back on shifting the action to some worn and predictable stereotypes.

amazing

t was a bit sad through out the story but it's a possibility. I got a bit confused when moving between characters!

Okay I guess

Loved the first one, but this one didn’t have as much going for it. Much less of a climax and a bit predictable. Narrating wasn’t great either, much prefer Luke Daniels in the first one.
