Publisher's Summary

At last - the ultimate book in the renowned Heechee Saga!
Advanced Heechee technology had enabled Robinette Broadhead to live after death as a machine-stored personality, enjoying his life by flitting along the wires from party to party with a host of other machine-people. But suddenly his decadent existence ends when an all-powerful alien race intent on the utter destruction of all intelligent life reappears after eons of silence, and threatens the lives of all heechee and humans. Even Robin, virtually immortal and with unlimited access to millennia of accumulated data, cannot discover how to stop these aliens. It began to seem that only a face to face meeting could determine the future of the entire universe....

Okay but nearly as good as the previous books

Would you try another book from Frederik Pohl and/or Oliver Wyman?

Yes, I definitely would, one bad book from Pohl won't turn me off yet.


What was most disappointing about Frederik Pohl’s story?

Spoilers for previous book:


We are constantly reminded that the virtual people are living in a virtual world. "I could see space through the viewscreen, but off course I wasn't really seeing it because I don't actually have eyes nor was the viewscreen real either..." Over and over and over, I get it has some point in the story but my goodness I felt beaten over the head with it.


What does Oliver Wyman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nothing, his voice acting was superb.


Was The Annals of the Heechee worth the listening time?

I'm iffy on that, I wanted another book because I felt the last one ended abruptly but part of me feels like I should have stopped there.
I liked getting some closure (sort of) on Robin.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you like scifi, the heeche series are a good bet. This is the 4th book in the series, and i enjoyed all of the book, i only wish 5th and 6th were available as audio books...
