A little variable but overall very good

What did you like most about Rollback?

The female characters and the wonderful ideas.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Rollback?

Anytime Sarah and Don would talk


What about George Wilson’s performance did you like?

Although he wasn't perfect he really conveyed the characters well, the voices were very appropriate and I thought he added to the book


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was furious with Don initially how he did what he did and didn't seem to care though it was explained fully in the end and made sense


Any additional comments?

Yes. I enjoyed this book and the ideas were fabulous. In comparison to the sublime ideas, I guess some of the characters weren't as well drawn as they could have been but the narrator did a great job with what he had. I would recommend to anyone interested in soft sci-fi.
