Would you listen to A Red Sun Also Rises again? Why?
Just waiting till the details get a bit fuzzy in my memory.
I love visiting new places. This book takes me to its realities.
What was one of the most memorable moments of A Red Sun Also Rises?
uummm It was no one moment. More like I realized connections and giggled.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
not out loud.. but internally a little of both
Any additional comments?
Precious..... I wonder what other books this writer has written.. gotta go look!! See Ya

A Red Sun Also Rises: there was a truth, that little know, close to the beginning of the story. In fact it may be the first time I have heard it since realizing it myself. “ the more engaged I am with a task the less I feel the pain of my twisted bones”. It is powerful only less to its truth. This hooked me…
This is my first steampunk novel and my review is premature. but all-in-all, I am enjoying it. Considerably in fact. There is a good chance that I will finish it in one listening. That too is a first for me. Don’t get me wrong, I'm not saying this is fantastic five star stuff; this is just a couple of firsts & a good book. it begins in a manner that shows the author’s love of dickens. Once firmly set into a dickens’ backdrop the scenery drifts further and further to the fantasy. I assume this is standard of all the steampunk stories.
But here, with this one, the performance is way above average. The characters are distinct, their voice and delivery truly fit the personality of the story. And the portrayal of the bazaar characters took it to the next level. wonderful entertainment. Once I got to the proper-English bantering 4 legged oyster creatures I couldn't stop, but to write this review (I am just short of half way thru the book now).
A take on morals gives the story the feel of being more than a simple science fiction. social progress and religious interference on it seem to be leading towards some existential coda. The philosophy thus far is not overbearing the context.
The creatures, their descriptions, are clever and fantastic. The 4 legged oyster creatures pictured on the cover are example.
Yeah, I really am digging on this book. I hope that it stands comparable to the others in it’s genre.
