Excellent except for Drew's voice actor. I found his voice grating. I hope Lizzie is in the next book.
This wasn't as good as Beggars in Spain. ..but only because Spain was my glimps of this alternate "Gene Mod" reality. Future really. Chooser's is an excellent stand alone. Highly recommended.
This is a solid sequel to Beggars in Spain, but it simply does not live up to the original. There is excellent further development of some of the key characters from book one, but some of the very clever and thought-provoking questions raised in the original are begged here, and the story line, rather than becoming tighter, is starting to unravel. Kress is still one of the best in the genre and the multi-reader narration brings the book to life in a remarkable way. Definitely worth a listen.
