New Review of Dry Land on Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 5 stars all the way for me, July 19, 2015
This review is from: Dry Land (Audible Audio Edition)
Exceptional. As I listened to the audiobook version of Dry Land, that was the word that kept coming to mind. I was sucked in from the first paragraph, and my love for the main character grew and grew. Ted, or “Shakespeare,” as he’s affectionately called in this story is humble, hilarious, and a true hero. I’m also listening to Hugh Howey’s Wool right now, and while the stories are vastly different, I found myself thinking Dry Land is most definitely in the same caliber of craft and story as Wool. I recommend this book to fans of scifi, no matter the sub-genre you usually read in.

The level of detail, the characterization, the plot reversals in the story that made me shout out loud “Oh, no you didn’t!”–all of it was exceptionally well done. The way the author wove the themes and symbolism throughout the story and brought them around full circle in the ending scene was a master stroke of genius. I plan to read anything Jenn Seidler has written or will write in the future. I know I’ll be in good writerly hands and be in for one hell of a ride!

The narrator, Ian Sorensen, totally had me guessing whether he is American or British. He switched between multiple voices effortlessly, and he was all around fantastic to listen to. I’ll also look up his other titles. He’s that’s good.

Bottom line: if you like scifi–or even if you don’t usually!–I strongly recommend that you give Dry Land a whirl. Bloody brilliant stuff.

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

New Review of the Dry Land Audio on Amazon and Audible from Cassandra S.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid 4 STARS, June 23, 2015
This review is from: Dry Land (Kindle Edition)
*I received this in exchange for an honest review
This type of book was sort of new for me…the Artificial Intelligence/Robotic type of character, but I found that I enjoyed it. Having some of the characters having that type of characteristics, thrown in with regular humans, and trying to find a way of expansion for Earth on the Moon. Now we all know that the Moon is so extremely important to the balance of the oceans, but obviously not all of the characters take this into consideration in this book.
It was an enjoyable book with a new look on things. The narrator did well and had great accents. I would definitely recommend this book to others and give it a solid 4 STARS.

A group of astronauts have been tapped to head to the moon and make it habitable for humans. The tech is all there, just has to be set up and unleashed. Ted ‘Shakespeare’ Hardistan must leave his android/human hybrid wife, Colby, behind as this mission is suppose to take the rest of his life. However, their efforts have unforeseen consequences and now all of the crew must take great risk to make right what they can.

Wow! I really enjoyed this book. First, we have Ted himself. He’s an interesting character with a propensity for quoting Shakespeare, sometimes at odd times. He’s your typical good guy at first glance. But once the pressure is on, he becomes decisive and even forceful in carrying through on what he believes to be…
