Couldn't stop listening! Wonderful cast. The audio version of Illuminae is stellar. It cannot have been an easy task to convert into audio, but not only did they do it justice, they have added to its brilliance.

While the story was interesting and thought-provoking, what I absolutely loved about this audio book was the voices. This is a production, not just a reading. I don't think I could read the book after hearing it vocalized.

Audie Award Winner for Multi-Voiced Performance. Read by Lincoln Hoppe, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Jonathan McClain and a Full Cast.

Absolutely compelling action and suspense in a wonderfully unusual package. I never wanted to set it down, and now that I'm done I want to keep reliving it.

It cannot have been an easy task to convert into audio, but not only did they do it justice, they have added to its brilliance. I preferred to skim through the print book periodically as I listened, because it is presented in a very visual format. It was interesting to see how some of the more visual elements were rendered in the audio version.

I find it generally annoying when reviewers reference other works, but I feel the need because it's what I was thinking the entire time I was reading the book--it took me to the same happy, immersive place these other stories did: This book feels like Battlestar Galactica (reboot), except instead of Cylons the fleet has to deal with being infiltrated by a virus that turns people into something like the Reavers from Firefly and a faulty artificial intelligence along the lines of Hal from A Space Odyssey. I can see why Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment and Warner Bros. are adapting it into a film.
The book's format seems like one of those that can't be translated to audiobook narration, but the recording, with it's extensive cast and liberal use of sound effects, is stellar.
This is the kind of book you geek out with while reading and want to geek out about after. I enjoyed it immensely.

Perhaps bravery is simply the face humanity wraps around its collective madness.

No neuroprogrammer is stupid enough to make a computer capable of conceptualizing deceit.
