If you could sum up Dawn in three words, what would they be?
Militaristic galactic politics
What did you like best about this story?
I will say that at first glance the reader can seem a bit monotone, but that feeling will not last long. His stone cold approach to characters is perfect for this book. His delivery is always spot on and perfectly reflects the stoic viewpoint of the two main characters.
To segway from that point, Yang and Reinhard are just perfect characters, and their situations among their forces grow more and more interesting the longer you consider what they are actually planning with each choice. I was not annoyed by any character and felt that every single second of the book was put to good use. No time wasted at all.
I do not want to gush for too long, but I have never read a book that makes war seem any cooler or more strategic than Dawn. While other stories focus on certain battles and following along the protagonists, Legends shows the whole scope and the grandiose nature of galactic combat, and I loved it for that reason.
Which scene was your favorite?
No major spoilers
The scene with the Patriotic Knights Corps was so interesting in association with Yang.
The very best scenes were of course the unbelievably large conflicts.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
11hrs would be a long time to sit and listen, but I listened intently every day for as long as I could manage.
Any additional comments?
I knew almost nothing about this book or story beforehand. I had seen the first episode of the anime, saw how many more episodes there were, and quit. I found this searching though the Audible library and tried it on a whim, and boy, did that whim pay off.
Possibly my favorite book. Definitely my favorite sci-fi book. "Ambition" here I come!
