Amazing characters, great narration.

Makes me want to be twenty and sailing space with them.

Me x 7 ,

Charming enough

Listened through in about a day so there was enough there to hold my attention as I completed other tasks. There is only a vague connection to being set in the future or in space and is more character based. Kept hoping for some action or conflict but it plods along in a pretty even manner.

Pretty darned good

The author is a fine narrator. My specific issues with the plot would equal spoilers but they're not big problems.

Biggest problem? Finding all the books so I can keep going.
