The story is amazing, ive read the book three times and bought the audio book for my wife. Listening with her, I noticed that he said the wrong dates at the end of the book. He says 2540 instead of 2550 and 2542 instead of 2552.
This ia a great book for filling in those questions of how the Spartans came to be and who they are. It gives a detailed look into how amazingly different they are from the average marine.
The way this narrator brings the world of Halo to life is amazing. I was afraid his rendition of Master Chiefs voice would conflict with what we all know from the games, but it's just as good if not better in some instances. This was a great audio book that completely translates the loss and struggle the Spartan-II's went through to save humanity.
I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this had the worst volume fluctuations I have heard. The narrators performance is actually pretty good regarding tone and theatrics but the volume constantly goes from barely audible to ear piercing. Chapter changes have the same volume issue. One chapter ends at an extreme high volume and the next chapter opens at a whisper or vice versa. The story is pretty entertaining (if you like the Halo games), the writing is a bit amateur and hackneyed.
