I picked this up and was totally hooked – am waiting on the next one now 🙂
There were a few things that I really enjoyed about this book, the original concept is well known, but I think this gave us a few more things to think on, and enjoy. 🙂
The ideas to fight the Martians were pretty cool, and the journey from ‘believing they’re coming back’ to them actually doing just that is exciting. The characters are well developed. Although the death of a loved one really can make you choose a different life path I was glad that the story evolved as it did.
I’ve listened to a few of Ray’s books now, and this was a very refreshing change to the other style of Sci fi, more realistic and enjoyable. (the Martians POV was just great, to listen to and to think on, would they really think of us so badly… I guess so. I also think this was truly a good performance because of that, lots of different characters for Ray to dialogue, and they were great to listen to and easy to distinguish.
Totally worth the credit, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you to both writer and narrator.
