...using the general story line of Cixin Liu's "The Three Body Problem" as well as the sequel "The Dark Forest"
Moss generally does a good job, but somehow this book (and it's sequels) comes across as a somewhat thin soup.
Where Liu really wades throug deep scientific waters, Moss stays at the surface of it all.
Liu's view of the sociological and economical impact of such a threat as pictured here is much more elaborate, again Moss stays a the surface.
It is like, well, every time you expect, he is gaining some depth, he trails of.. and starts the action.
He uses the story line (10 years where Liu covers 450 years!), to walk along just to place his favorites (Action) here and there and uses the rest to plot along.
And so generally this book and it's brethrens lack some depth.
Logical glitches, sometimes long stretching, slowly passages (Which are not bad because they are slowly but because they are.. hmm.. like molasses), ravaging action and overly detailed when it comes to action (fighting, may it be a dog fight between two, or mass mitlitary confrontations) makes listening to this/these book(s) somewhat painfull.
Especially the logical flaws sometimes really hurt.
There are a lot of characters, somehow none of them really gets three dimensional.
It IS a book, which keeps you listening, anyway, so not totaly bad.
But as with any thin soup, one is not really satisfied.
The reader, Mr. Bray, does a quite good job, but does not distinguish himself from the lot of readers I have heard so far.
So, this is fun to hear, but not satisfying in the end.
I listend to Lius Books two times now, it may come to a third time or more, but i have no desire to repeat that with these books:
