I found the narrator to be pleasant to listen to with his inflections and voice changes from time to time to fit the narrative. The book was a fun listen as well. Gets you thinking about certain scientific things.
well it's an award winning novel.... but there narrator makes the story really stand on another level
This book is a great piece of speculative fiction. Obviously dated by its ideas about the future, it has a lot of timeless questions too, such as meditations of xenobiology, xenolinguisitcs, and the complete randomness of interstellar combat.
