Captivating Story

I thoroughly enjoyed The Golden Queen. It had the winning combo of an interesting and varied setting, fascinating three-dimensional characters and a captivating storyline. Perhaps it was having a bear as one of the main characters but I found the story reminded me of The Golden Compass. I also found the narration very well done. The varied accents of the narrator made it easy to keep the characters apart without being over stated or distracting. An overall well done reading/listening experience.

KISS ME QUICK BIRDS

HIS EYES WERE AS HUGE AS A STALLIONS TESTICLES
BEARS NEED THE WOODS LIKE BIRDS NEED THE SKY
THE MAN IS SO CLEAN, IF YOU TOOK A BATH WITH HIM, YOU COULD USE HIM FOR SOAP.
IF SOMEONE LOOPED OFF YOUR HEAD, IT WOULD BE NO LOSS, YOUR GONADS WOULD DO ALL THE THINKING.
When this story starts out it, sounds like an amusing fantasy. It is funny and you meet some interesting characters, but before you get a chance to explore what seems to be an interesting world, we change worlds. The book goes from fantasy to Sci-Fi. The Science has lots of genetics, human sized insects, mind control, robots, etc..
Farland who wrote this book originally under the name Wolverton does not write Science Fiction as well as he writes fantasy. Though he has lots of gadgets and he explains them, it just does not come off as believable. He should have stuck to fantasy and explored the first world more completely before changing gears. It was an early novel and it reads like an early novel. Under the name Farland, he seems to write only fantasy and he sells more books. He is creative and has talent in writing fantasy. He also has plenty of cool one liners, as witness above.

The narrator does not help, his voice is too sweet and sounds like he is reading Dr. Seuss.

GOD, BE WITH YOU, FOR I SHALL NOT.
