Audio Book Summary

For short-lived 'Quick' races like humans, space is dominated by the complicated, grandiose Mercatoria whose rule is both military and religious. To the Dwellers who may live billions of years, the galaxy consists of their gas-giant planets - the rest is debris.
Our human hero Fassin Taak is a 'Slow Seer' privileged to work with the Dwellers of the gas-giant Nasqueron in his home system Ulubis. His life work is rummaging for data in their vast, disorganised memories and libraries. Unfortunately, without knowing it, he's come close to an ancient secret of unimaginable importance...

    This is a very wet sounding narrator. I tried but just couldn't get past that wet sound.

    Vivid writing but easy to get lost. The story is slow and plodding that left me reading the news while listening. Some may find it fascinating, I found it dull and silly. A series of tropes shrouded in verbiage.

    I read the book but found it difficult to understand all the threads. The narrator wove them very well, making it easier to follow. Great job.
