Would you listen to The Curse of Europa, Volume 1 again? Why?
Well... Normally I don't re-listen or re-read any books, but I just watched The Europa Report and now I want to revisit some of this book. Plus it is relatively short.
What did you like best about this story?
The realism, starting out with the explanation of the ship and how it created artificial gravity was cool. The first contact was cool - I just wish it was explored a bit more.
Which character – as performed by Victoria Masterson – was your favorite?
She didn't to many unique voices except the Russian. She did a good job with him I thought, except he talked a bit slow.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not necessary. At least not at first. Towards the midway part of the book the chapters started ending with cliff hangers which did make me want to keep going.
Any additional comments?
I thought the story was great and well told. Some of the story seemed feasible but some things were a bit far fetched, but I guess that what makes it interesting. I don't think they could have really stayed out on Europa for as long as they did with the radiation, the book kind of (conveniently) glosses over that. This is really a story about first contact and was refreshing that the aliens were not man eating monsters (well... except... I won't say anything else to spoil anything.) This is a short story and I think some more detail could have been added to the story, but I liked it.
The narration was average but acceptable. There was some dialog that seemed a bit "off", it's hard to explain. But all-in-all ok.
I thought this book was the plot line for The Europa Report movie, but I just watched that and it does not seem to be. This book was better.

I enjoyed this story, I felt the story was a bit rushed and spoon feed. But I did just come off of 130 hours of KSR Red Mars and 2312....
I think the narrater did a fine job, but I didn't feel that a space sci-fi was her thing.
