I would NEVER recommend this book.

What disappointed you about Artemis?

The book was nothing like its description. It was a suggested book at the end of the On The Edge Series which was absolutely amazing. I was expecting Artemis to be good as well. The narrator didn't help make the book interesting.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I listened to the Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan (a great book with an excellent narrator- Tim Gerard Reynolds).

How could the performance have been better?

If it was a different book or majorly edited with a different narrator, it would have been much better.

Any additional comments?

The book was so boring and lacking in any entertainment. I always love getting in the car to listen to books while I drive, but with this one I dreaded driving anywhere to have to listen to it. I'm not sure if you can pass out zero stars, if that's possible it would be a zero.

A little confusing

This is written in the first person. The story jumps around a bit. I had to re-listen to parts of the story in order to keep things straight. I did enjoy the story. It was interesting to have a science fiction story with emphasis on the characters. This is first story I have listened to by Philip Palmer. I have added him to my list of authors. I enjoyed Heather O'Neill's narration. Robert Ian Mackenzie does a good job too. At first I thought his inserts were actually from the editor.
