    I'm guessing this is bad.

    I've got to turn my trucks head unit to the low to mid 50s out of 60 to hear him most of the time. The side mirrors and rear view mirror shake when I play rock music at mid 30s to 40s, playing music at that same volume as his narration would be deafening. Hope the later books aren't this way.

    Pandora's Star has been great though. Some of the detective work and political discussions are a bit too drawn out (GET ON WITH IT!) but the sci-fi parts are great.

    This is what I'm feeling. Get on with the Dyson pair shit, the space ship. I don't care about the terrorist, the rich bitch, or the detective.

    Do stick with it, I still have +8 hours to go but there are some really great plots among those more boring elements you brought up.

    It's a Ken Follett book set in space.

    It's all relevant, you'll appreciate it later.
