This was a fitting sequel to "Vurt" and although set in the same settings and written in the same style, I had hoped for more references to the original protagonist "scribble" from the first book. Although the characters were linked and the story diverted from the one told in the first book, I found this story less engaging.
Still a good book nonetheless, however I personally found the story less of a page turner so to speak. If you have read vurt, I definitely recommend this sequel too but I enjoyed the first book more.
Would you consider the audio edition of Pollen to be better than the print version?
I have read the printed version and must say that I much preferred it.
What did you like best about this story?
It is a truly great read.
Would you be willing to try another one of Maggie Mash’s performances?
NO, I really did not enjoy her performance, in fact it ruined my enjoyment of the book and may put me off trying further audible books
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Perversions aside, this book would have been better classified as a YA novel rather than a science fiction work. There wasn't an ounce of science. The fantasy realm felt very juvenile.
What was most disappointing about Jeff Noon’s story?
The Vurt world was un-fascinating. The lust-infused world fell flat.
What about Maggie Mash’s performance did you like?
She was all-around good.
Was Pollen worth the listening time?
Nope. difficult to finish as I lost interest in the Alice-In-Wonderland parallel universe
