Good story almost drown in details

The main story is very good. The fist mystifying chapters are extremely good and I think the narrator is just right and does a superb job.

But then we get a lot of scenarios which I am sure fits into the pattern but is quite boring to listen to - esp because many of them are variations of scenarios we have already heard. Also most of the computer inaction is spelled out in detail - in a printed edition I guess you would skip or skim a lot of those, but in an audio book it becomes annoying.

Unlistenable

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Some people should not narrate books. Me, for example - I'd be very bad at it.

Sadly, so is the narrator of this book. Slow, stilted delivery, inappropriate inflections - I barely got through the first minute.

I can't comment on the story, but I am a Priest fan, so it's a disappointment not to be able to listen to this one.


Would you be willing to try another book from Christopher Priest? Why or why not?

Yes. With a different reader.
