Publisher's Summary

It is winter in Area X. A new team embarks across the border on a mission to find a member of a previous expedition who may have been left behind. As they press deeper into the unknown - navigating new terrain and new challenges - the threat to the outside world becomes only more daunting.
In the final installment of the Southern Reach Trilogy, the mysteries of Area X may have been solved, but their consequences and implications are no less profound - or terrifying.

Interesting and compelling but what was that?

Would you listen to Acceptance again? Why?

Yes I would only because audio books can be the kind of thing you might get distracted by outside elements and not hear something important. Also I'm the sort of person to re-read a book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Biologist, for no particular reaason

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Dude the RECORDING of this book is really sloppy. Obvious edits and changes in tone and loudness affect the reading of it. Otherwise I liked the readers.

Nice continuation, terrible production value.

What did you like best about Acceptance? What did you like least?

I'm about 1/2 way through Jeff VanderMeer's latest and its a nice continuation of the story on the whole. The performances are just as good as the previous two novels. The audio production might be the WORST I've ever heard.

Starting off, the sound in warm and rich. But the minute I hit the first edit, I was pulled right out of the story. The difference in the sonic quality between the main bulk of the audio and the retakes is ridiculous. I've been an Audible subscriber for many, many years and have over 400 books in my library and I've never heard anything this inconsistent on this service before.

What other book might you compare Acceptance to and why?

Story wise, other than the first two books in the series, its hard to really compare to other books.

Was Acceptance worth the listening time?

To finish out the story, yes. Sonically, was it enjoyable...no.

Any additional comments?

Blackstone Audio is better than this.
