“Great Syfy Listen!!” – by Anne

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would to anyone who is a fan of this genre…this has it all for the true syfy fan!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dry Land?

When he thought Colby was dead…Ted was so distraught!

Have you listened to any of Ian Sorensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not, but I would…he is very good!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This would be an interesting movie….

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I am a huge Syfy fan..so this was right up my alley…Ted and a small crew of astronauts are sent to the moon to complete a mission to make it habitable…well things go wrong and they get stuck there….the twist is these are droid/human hybrids…such a unique and interesting story, and a great addition to the syfy genre….there is romance, and loss in this story…and it was a great quick listen…and I loved the little bonus story at the end!!! Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com
