Starkly beautiful cyberpunk meditations to contemplate over red wine at dusk. If reading that sentence makes you want to punch someone in the throat even as you can begrudgingly relate, buy it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Void Star to be better than the print version?
With the different narrators each performing a different POV character, it made differentiating the different story lines easier. In the book, chapters are generally less than 10 pages long and characters can change rather rapidly. Hard to judge if it was better than reading the book, but the production value was high and I know the narration heightened the experience of certain scenes in the book.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Void Star?
The ending, especially in relation to Kern, is very satisfying and truly enriches everything that preceded it. Much of the prose is very beautiful and reminds of some of the best and classic books I've read in the past. Sometimes it feels more like poetry but it fits just perfect.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
Irina, performed by Cassandra Campbell, and Kern, performed by Michael Braun, stood out most to me. Braun perfectly captures Kern's more frenetic violent story while also being able to relate the character's innocence and naivety. Campbell is doing most of the heavy lifting story-wise, but her performance really is beautiful and matches the prose very well while keeping an edge in more tense scenes.
Any additional comments?
I don't usually reread books, but I think I'll be revisiting this one. I'll definitely be picking up a hard copy.
