A new twist
This book took one of the old standards of Science Fiction; The generation ship, evolved it into a
modern thoughtful story. Adventure, Hi-Science Fiction and some love thrown in. Narration was good, although I rarely have a problem with the
narrators on audio books. I am astounded at the number of reviewers who rip on the narrators.
But I digress... This was a good story well told.
I almost wish for a sequel even though it is refreshing to read/listen to a sci fi book that
is not multi book.

A throughly well crafted story
This was my first audio book, as well as my first Elizabeth Bear book. The writing was exquisitely well crafted; her prose was simply wonderful to listen to and, because of this, I plan to read it as well. The story was compelling, leading the reader on to understand the complexities of "the world" that was the stranded generation ship, with its ship mind/AI fragmented into pieces, the "angels". Very ingenious and well done. Without burdening the reader with endless technical descriptions, she illuminates the characters and brings them into vivid focus. The narrator was perfect.
