Where does Building Harlequin's Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
near the bottom
What other book might you compare Building Harlequin's Moon to and why?
hard to tell because the reader is so bad.
What didn’t you like about Tom Weiner’s performance?
He sounds like he is reading a documentary or technical user's manual. He has a deep, booming voice. Since most of the characters are female and/or children/teens, it just doesn't work. Even when he is reading "tender moments" it's like the Hulk hugging a child. You know what he's trying to do but you can do nothing but cringe. I'm sure that he would be great for some other books but not one such as this in which gentle nuances are needed. The characters are constantly torn because of decisions that they have to make or that others made. He just can't express that depth of felling.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Haven't finished it yet but it really is difficult to get into it and really care about the characters since they are read so woodenly.

, loved it, great story, great performance, awesome actor. you probably know the basics of working on mechanics before you start and be comfortable with the idea of imagining a jovian type system
After a brief but interesting section on the building of the moon (Pure Niven) the story goes flatline.
It takes a long time for anything to happen, but the sad truth is that nothing much does occur in the story. The last 30 minutes or so are rushed and cover approximately 200 years.
This desperately needs an abbreviated version, and even then I wouldn’t’ recommend it.
