Quite a good reader and a good story line made for a relaxed listen. Suspend credibility and enjoy.

It's not as good as Forever War, but not much is. It is very gripping though, and entertaining.
I listened to the audio book and was hooked. I understand what another comment says about 'Abyss meets Species', but I contend that it is 'in a good way'. I really enjoyed this story. The ending was somewhat abrupt though, hence the lower than perfect rating.
Little by little as the main character becomes more human and interacts more with humans, so does the listener's interest in the story grows. There are some very sexually frank scenes as well as some gruesome spots. However, the author does involve us in the protagonist's story and the listener is rooting hard for the welfare and love life of the Changeling by the end of the book.

I liked this book very much, more than The Forever War. Other reviewers are correct: there is sexual content. Parents giving the book a poor review are revealing their inability to be responsible adults themselves by relying on Audible to tell them what is good for their kids. The sexual issues are not the focus of the book; the main character lives many lives, and therefore experiences many things - including murder. The narrator has a great voice. Joe Haldeman is amazing. Science fiction written for adults, and I am in the target audience. If you want something else, I suggest going to your local library to the "youth" section, and familiarize yourself with authors that are more appropriate for your young ones.
