Nice potential but ultimately not satisfying

Very imaginative but far to much exposition. This on top of a hero who never seemed to understand anything and needed the exposition dumbed down to a 5th grade level made portions of the book seem endlessly repetitive.

The narrator did a wonderful job with what he had and would likely shine even brighter if given a more mature story.

Over all this is bearable because of the narration, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Def worth a credit

Very cool premise, enjoyed the first book a little more but this one is def worth a read. Very nice blend of sci-if, fantasy, hero type book. Cool spin on explaining religion etc. This book just doesn't have that "can't put down factor." Also I save my 5 stars for the truly epic books which is rare, so 4 star is most people's 5. My last two books were on the amazing level. "The Call" was a really fun fantasy/horror book, premise might not sound good but trust me I couldn't put it down, almost gave 5 stars. The truly epic 5 star book was "Awaken Online." I gave "Ready Player One" five stars and Awaken was even better!!

The first book was great, this is not.!

Read the first book and then on audio, that's how much I enjoyed it. Went straight out and bought the audio of this one and sorry, but very disappointed.

Great storyline but sooo slow and prosaic in the never ending diversions from the main story. Blah, blah, blah. every few pages it went into silly little areas that did not move the story forward at all.

The author kept using the exact same word every time another person spoke. He said or she said, no changes such as he replied or she responded etc etc. This made the conversations boring whereas with the right use of different words, it would have had another star from me.

Overall, if the author does a 3rd book I MIGHT read it and really want too not if the issues noted above are still there, then I wont buy it, sorry.

Really would like to see this author get this right because I can see a future with me reading more of his books.
