Progeny's children

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The story was great and took a few twists and turns with some surprises, both good and evil. The author combined two of his previous short stories into this full length book. Great scifi book

Politicians!! Grrrrr

I know this is supposed to be a review about the wonderful story, Progeny's Children written by the talented Ray Jay Perreault and narrated by Christopher M. Allport....BUT I first need to rant a bit about the deep emotions this book has brought to the forefront. There is a lot of good about humankind.... BUT there is also a lot of hate, bigotry and fear. Sadly those ruled by the latter are why visiting aliens are going to wipe out the human race, unless unlike some humans and more like the wonderful US and THEM in this book they take a step back and realize that all types of beings are worth saving, even humans.

Now onto the book. The story was wonderful and definitely took a few twists and turns thus providing some surprises, both good and evil. Perreault combined two of his previous short stories into this full length book brilliantly, "Good Morning... Processes Must Be Improved" and "Progeny". That being said I feel that certain details of the various issues were repeated a few too many times when new discussion on that issue was to be undertaken. Also the production decision to put a beep at the end of a scene was a bit annoying, the pauses in the vocals was plenty of notice that the scene was changing. These were minor issues and did not detract from the overall appeal of the book.

Christopher M. Allport has some tempo and vocal qualities similar to Wil Wheaton who I am very familiar with and definitely appreciate. I also hear bits of sarcasm in Allport’s manner that as always appeals to my inner snark.

I am so appreciative to have been given a copy of this book for review and I look forward to future work from the author and narrator.
