Summary

Shi Jin is a rebel, the latest in a long line of those who have challenged the Borderless Empire and failed. Dropped with a crew of convicts on an uninhabited planet, Shi Jin - and mankind- encounter alien life forms for the first time. She discovers that she is part of a much bigger game... one that will force her to decide between her desire to defeat the Empire and the future of humanity.

Just not my cup of tea

What disappointed you about Fall From Earth?

Not enough action, I could not get interested in the characters

What could Matthew Johnson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Art is subjective, I love Van Gogh but I hate Picasso. I'm just into more fantasy, some action, some humor, and escape reality. His story sounds to much like my job.

What didn’t you like about Emma Newman’s performance?

clear monotone

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

it was short

Any additional comments?

nope

Enjoyable

An easy listen with an interesting and predictable plot. Not heavy Science Fiction, more a story set in a future world.That said, it is not a future fantasy 'opera' either.
