I read this years ago and liked it. Today, not so much. If you are a big Silverberg or Majipoor fan than this is a must, but if you are not, I believe it will seem boring. If you want to check out this series, I suggest you start with Lord Valentine's Castle. Silverberg was probably the most prolific Science Fiction writer in the 60's and 70's. Most of his writing is a bit laid back for today's reader.

Narrators are great.

My Review for Majipoor Chronicle

What did you love best about Majipoor Chronicles?

It's starts where the last book ends.I learned more of the background of Majipor and how it begins with Hissune had discovering the library in the depth of Labyrinth, and learns the history of Majipoor from the memory cubes.

What other book might you compare Majipoor Chronicles to and why?

I cant' recall any, because the Lord Valentines's Castle was the first book I willingly picked to read without it being require.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

Inyanna is my favorite charactor. The young shop keeper inherit her store from her mother and grandmother, wanting more of her life than operating a store in a small town.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Come and see the through the eyes of the people who lived in the history of Majipor's legends.

Any additional comments?

I would listen to it again.
