What disappointed you about Serengeti?
The story started out interesting, but devolved until it was at the level of a 5 year old. Most of the book is a supposed 10 generation AI talking to maintenance robots like they were Ewoks. The robots have to communicate VERBALLY with the Ships advanced AI. The AI can't interpret the flashing lights and beeps of the robots. Most of the book seems to be the AI trying to pry information out of the robots shen it could link in and take in a thousandth of a second. Stupid, stupid stupid!
Would you ever listen to anything by J. B. Rockwell again?
Never, ever, no way, no how!
What aspect of Elizabeth Wiley’s performance would you have changed?
Her performance was fine considering the material.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
If you need something to put your toddlers to sleep, this will do it.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
This is a cute droid novel, but it has absolutely no relation to the reality of physics. Unfortunately it is all contrived and is not believable and also not very satisfying. I barely made it through at 2x speed. The narrator was fine.
Has Serengeti turned you off from other books in this genre?
The author needs to study basic physics. Obviously J.B. Rockwell has no knowledge of basic science.
What does Elizabeth Wiley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The narrator was great!
If this book were a movie would you go see it?

The first half is a Star Wars style space battle (not really credible). It than goes seriously downhill
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would recommend to a friend, it was a refreshing storey line to listen to, I hope that there will be a follow on book.
What did you like best about this story?
It was the ship AI's and maintenance drone/bots that were the main characters.
What does Elizabeth Wiley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I don't think someone else could have played the part, the warmth and feeling came through right to the end.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, just a satisfied feeling that the fleet came back looking for Serengeti.
Any additional comments?
I hope that there will be other stories about Serengeti in the near future.
