What would have made Sailing Bright Eternity better?
A nice concise story not filled with irrelavent adjectivable dribble
What do you think your next listen will be?
Anything not Benford. He really turned me off to his books due to the seemingly irrelevant page filling dribble
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Generally ok although, were that many narrators really required? Was that supposed to make the book better? Reminded me of the author's page filling adjectives and noncontributing fantasy "scenes".
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment and some anger that it appeared like the author: 1)either had a page goal and tried to just fill the pages with irrelevant fantasy scenes and adjectives to reach the page count; or (2) that he is impressed with himself as to his command of the English language and wanted to demonstrate it by filling page after page of meaningless descriptive "fantasy" scenes.
Any additional comments?
I slugged my way though all six books with a sense of growing frustration in the hope of seeing a reasonably good ending. The ending was so-so. I thought the author did a disservice to a good concept and an good initial start in book 1. It went downhill from there. If I would have known how the following books were going to go, I would have never proceeded. Maybe it was shear bullheadedness on my part but I slugged my way through all six books. I should have stopped after 2.
