Just ok

After reading this book, I can honestly say that I prefer Sawyer’s later works – they are terrific!

This book was ok, I don’t have much to criticize… I just didn’t love it.

Absolutely terrible narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Robert. J. Sawyer is my favorite science fiction writer in current years. I read all of his books. This was apparently one of his earlier works and one has to make allowances for that, but his later works show how far he has risen in the ranks of the genre.


What other book might you compare Golden Fleece to and why?

I guess the closest book I can compare it to would be "2001: A Space Odessey" because of the premise that a computer has taken over control of the ship.


How could the performance have been better?

Change the narrator. This is the first book I have listened to narrated by Steven Menasche and I must say that it was a very uncomfortable experience. He narrates with a certain accent and all of the character voices sound the same. It added confusion to a complicated plot and many times I was list as to who was speaking.


Do you think Golden Fleece needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It definitely could be followed up with many stories, since with book the long journey is just beginning.


Any additional comments?

Robert. J. Sawyer does not disappoint.
