I am a long time SF fan and I’ve read all of CJ Cherryh’s books because she is among the top SF authors ever. Now I have the pleasure of listening to them as well. While she is famous for series, such as Faded Sun, Chanur, and her epic and unequaled Foreigner series, she has written many stand-alone jewels as well. Serpent’s Reach is one of those stand-alone jewels. Take a trip with Ms. Cherryh to a far away culture and meet an alien species. You will not be disappointed. The narrator did a fabulous job.

What did you love best about Serpent's Reach?
I'm not usually a fan of Sci-fi but I just finished listening to "Serpent's Reach" and I couldn't be more enthusiastic! I think hearing it aloud aided by the smooth voiced & expressive narrator, who really brought it to life. Everything about this book - the plot, the characters, the message, was riveting. I was drawn into a world that was so different than mine that I felt that I'd been transported and it's just what I needed to lose myself! I love how the author intertwines serious issues about conformity versus independence with far out situations and characters. I didn't know I liked sci-fi until this book but I'm so glad audible and it's excellent narrator brought it to life for me! It's now on my recommend list!!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

C J Cherryh is a very good story teller, this recording is quite good, I have read the book and have enjoyed hearing it I can recommend both this recording and the book very well written
Would you try another book written by C. J. Cherryh or narrated by Romy Nordlinger?
All of C J Cherryh's books are great. This one could have been a really good audio book but is narrated so badly that it is barely listenable.
Would you be willing to try another one of Romy Nordlinger’s performances?
If this book were a film would you go see it?
