The first ten hours of listening, which is as far as I care to go, tells the story of a researcher of alien worlds to determine the terraforming possibilities. Following a fall into an underground alien vessel of some kind her body has been covered with a “suit” of some alien armor that she doesn’t want, but uses. The story to this point is comic book stuff of getting into and out of and avoiding trouble – and going nowhere. Saving humanity? Not in the first ten hours. Personally at the point of not caring what happens to the main character. Life is too short, so many books to read, so little time….returned.
Simply cannot understand the hoopla surrounding this book – lost on me. But, you may find it peachy – apparently many do. Just not my cup ‘o tea.
The bad guys are called jellies. Really.
Written by Christopher Paolini, narrated by Jennifer Hale, over 32 of listening in unabridged format. Narration and production are fine.
