And while we’re at it let’s give a big fucking shout out and thank you to Evo Terra and Podiobooks.com for providing a metric shit tonne of awesome content to listen to – Lots of great Podiobooks in many genres by many talented writers – You can find them at http://www.podiobooks.com @podiobooks @evo_terra
Now on to the meat and potatoes – First off Nathan asks that we not spoil the ending by invoking Article 37… Screw Article 37 I’ll tell you how it ends… Like always – Nathan being a hell of a guy and thank you for listening… If you want how the story ends get off your ass and listen to it yourself… my words can’t do it justice.
Do you want 30 foot T-Rex’s jumping out of scrubbers and devouring half the crew, and exciting flitter chase where Ish dives out of the craft shooting the pirates through the armor glass port and Pip coming out of nowhere and saving him with a rocket pack? Me too but that’s not the kind of stuff Nathan writes in the Share series, his ideas are a hell of a lot cooler if a lot more sedate.
Again Nathan delivers a great story, with a fantastic read. You feel the highs and lows of the crew. You get it through the way the words flow, and you hear it in his voice. You’ll feel the shock and betrayal when the crew realizes that ARTICLE 37 is the one behind ARTICLE 37. Oh and when ARTICLE 37 does ARTICLE 37 with ARTICLE 37 it’s just mind blowing. I mean when ARTICLE 37 let ARTICLE 37 in the back ARTICLE 37 it was like whoa … I mean really how the hell does one get a ARTICLE 37 into a 3×3 cubicle with ARTICLE 37 ,ARTICLE 37 ,ARTICLE 37 and 4 ARTICLE 37s… okay I went a little heavy on the ARTICLE 37. Back to seriousness though – Again Nathan provides a great story, with a couple of twists that left an entire busload of people (literally I was on the bus listening to it) giving me dirty looks when I audibly expressed my incredulity at the twists.
As always it’s a well written story performed by a great voice talent.
Didn’t want to jump on the bad wagon yesterday though I kinda did through facebook but I’ll do it here and now and maybe another post on it tomorrow if I have the time… presence of mid to actually remember damned squirrels stealing my thoughts…
Thank you Nathan for not only providing free content but kick ass free content, it’s all too easy to just provide crap for free and make people pay for the good stuff. Through the years I have sat impatiently waiting the next step in Ish’s Journey. I still impatiently wait the next step. Thank you for not wrapping everything up in a pretty red bow and doing the they sailed off into the deep dark happily ever after thing. The books end how the entire series appealed to me – Feeling real.
Now stop reading and get back to work I can feel the withdrawal kicking in already!!!! More content!!! errr…ummm I mean more content please Sahr.
