Revelation Space

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Alastair Reynolds

Narrated By: John Lee

Date: January 2009

Duration: 22 hours 0 minutes


Nine hundred thousand years ago, something annihilated the Amarantin civilization just as it was on the verge of discovering space flight. Now one scientist, Dan Sylveste, will stop at nothing to solve the Amarantin riddle before ancient history repeats itself. With no other resources at his disposal, Sylveste forges a dangerous alliance with the cyborg crew of the starship Nostalgia for Infinity. But as he closes in on the secret, a killer closes in on him because the Amarantin were destroyed for a reason. And if that reason is uncovered, the universe-and reality itself-could be irrevocably altered.

    I could not understand half of it with the horrible accents. As far as the book itself, I'll never know unless it comes out with a decent narrator.

    One of the best narrators in the business and an excellently thrilling book.

    great book , and the narration was excellent

  • David F.

    i could not seem to follow the story or relevance. Multiple start-overs didn't seem to help me.

    oh wow, this is a real gem. I just came from reading the Red Rising series (which was flawed but nonetheless entertaining) and having listened to this I now see what a considerably more (sorry this seems like a slight) mature author can do. This, not that I'm an author or even an authorized person to be commenting on authors (bless them one and all), is nuanced, intelligent, absorbing and really doesn't "spoon feed" the reader; you find yourself drawn in from the first paragraph and although (for me anyway) there are some mental stretches required, the rewards are there in abundance. Just a thoroughly enjoyable piece and if you're reading this review this far (thanks)I can't but recommend it with total enthusiasm. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  • James T.

    Boring and lackluster

  • Randy L.

    Narrator sounds like he has a mouthful of marbles for half his accents. Made it just too hard to follow.

  • Anonymous

    Very complex. Interwoven storylines that continuously jumps from one to the other. Great narrator, but too detailistic

  • Laurie S.

    Having read this amazing book when it was first released - and many times after, it has truly set the highest standard for interwoven and complex story lines augmented with thrilling technology and some of the wildest adventures ever!

    John Lee is a wonderfully brilliant narrator.. He gets into the characters persona of the book with with ease and is always consistent with the individual attributes of each character.. Sometimes the otherworldly deep brush accents can be a tiny bit hard to understand but lends quite well to what you would think a character would sound like as if you were standing in the room the action is happening..
