Just not my cup of tea

What disappointed you about Fall From Earth?

Not enough action, I could not get interested in the characters

What could Matthew Johnson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Art is subjective, I love Van Gogh but I hate Picasso. I'm just into more fantasy, some action, some humor, and escape reality. His story sounds to much like my job.

What didn’t you like about Emma Newman’s performance?

clear monotone

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

it was short

Any additional comments?

An easy listen with an interesting and predictable plot. Not heavy Science Fiction, more a story set in a future world.That said, it is not a future fantasy 'opera' either.
