    I am Completely lost....

    This book made no sense at all to me. I am so lost it's not even funny. I read the book al the way through, but it jumps around like crazy. You are all over the place as you read and some of it I don't even think pertains to the actual characters that i see repeat over and over. I could be wrong though since the whole book had be lost from the very begining. I kept thinking it would become clearer as I read on, but it didn't. I really have no clue what it was I just read.

    I was lost throughout the entire book basically some of it made

    I was lost throughout the entire book basically some of it made sense and i kept expecting things to tie together.. eventually. But it never does. The end leaves you feeling kinda like wth did i just read. What happened. Thats it? no explanation? The story has great potential but its fabrication is faulty at best. At times i felt that the author was just throwing in large ridiculous words because he could. Not because there was any need for it which just caused the feeling of being lost even worse. The grammar is confusing as well, along with the lack of punctuation or any sign of mental thought change in the flow. Great if youre into that create your own ideas sort of book. But if you want a good read thats not going to have you lost this isnt the book for you. The pages keep you turning only because you keep waiting for the revelation of understanding. Why or how come. But it never comes. Id like to think of myself as not being literary daft either. But who knows.

    A challenging book which is very beautiful in places. I love that it's Zen-like and strange and doesn't give you easy answers. I'll be reading it again.

    WTF!

    Half way through i deleted this book. I have no idewhy i got this, maybe because it was free, but i barely got through mortal ghost. This author is obviusly not one of my favorites, possibly because of the graphic scense, but i was completly lost. I liked the sci-fi matrix-like background on this book though. If only it made scense!

    Not For Me

    Ioan Hefin's voice and tone is perfect for this uniquely original and bizarre story. Even though at times he reads it without punctuation, at widely varying speeds, and sometimes with heavy sighs as if he is bored. However, I really loved the matrix-like sound in the background on some of the podcasts. Great job! 'Corvus' kept me with the sense of being lost, (perhaps that's part of the creator's intention. I'm not sure.), but I find myself listening harder than normal, concentrating and attempting to follow the storyline. It's filled with teen sexual encounters, combined with the interesting and curious science of AI, terrorism, and prejudice themes. I was warned by the author, that I would not like 'Corvus' based on my review of 'Mortal Ghost'. I should have listened to the advice. My experience with 'Corvus' and 'Mortal Ghost' is that L. Lee Lowe is not an author I care for. I'm timid to say anything further about how much I didn't care for it, because I don't want to push those away who will truly delight in these stories. For me, I will not be trying 'Noise', unless I'm desperate.
