Would you try another book from Dave Donovan and/or Jeff Cummings?
Dave Donovan...I would give it a try. He has good chops and technical knowledge, and has alot of potential in this category of fiction. I certainly would not preclude him from my list!
Jeff Cummings...sometimes comes across as trying too hard, but on balance a good performance with some pretty technical, or complex, dialogue. Again, not enough to preclude giving him another try.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
It is clearly the beginning of a series, and as such the ending is rather open ended, esp. in the context of the amount of dedication we all put in to commit to the story. Thus, a neater ending would have been desirable.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Try to be more natural and relaxed.
Do you think The Gift needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
It is clearly the beginning of a series, and the story does need conclusion.
Any additional comments?
The reviews I read were alot more effusive than what I experienced. It was a decent listen, but didn't blow me away like it evidently did for other people. I liked if well enough, but was not in my top 25. Not even close. Recommended with reservations as noted.
