Not all great, but all good

What did you love best about The New Space Opera?

There was not a single performance on this audio book that wasn't really good. Every reader improved the story with their performance.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

None of these readers was Jim Dale, with his myriad voices, but the male readers gave female characters believable voices, and the female readers did the same for the male. None of them detracted from the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not really. But almost none of the stories made me anxious for an ending. They weren't all great stories, but none of them would be a flop, either.

Any additional comments?

Buyers of this audio book definitely get their money's worth, almost 18 hours of entertainment!
