Probably not, it's not the sort of book you listen to over and over.
Final test of MJOLNIR armor.
Solid reading if you are a fan of the game. The worst thing about this book is the way that Nylund makes the MC both a sentimental soldier (concern for his Spartans) and a mindless drone. The most violent combat in the book is when John is fighting/killing some ODST in an apparent test of his capabilities and armor. It makes the UNSC seem pretty nasty and John seem like a psychopath.
Such a great book! I read this when it first came out in highschool and now had to listen to it. The narrator did an excellent job keeping up with the tempo of the battle scenes.
I have the books and it was good enough to get another copy on here. Only con I can say is different volumes of characters voices made it hard to find a comfortable volume to listen to....you turn it up to hear cortona and then the next character blows your eardrums out
The narrator brought this dramatic story into action. The feeling that Halo is meant to have, was definitely there. I am glad I took the time to this breath taking, full of action... and definitely kick-ass story!
Thank you for the experience!
The story of how the Master Chief got his start has so much potential. Some parts of the story felt like they could have been lengthened some. The narration of the story is what bothered me most. From chapter to chapter (sometimes in the middle) the volume of the speaker would change. It doesn't sound as clean as all the other books I've listened to. Otherwise as a fan of the game I like how well it ties into the game.
I love this book, I've read it in paper multiple times. if you're going to perform a story please spend some time learning pronunciation of key terms. every time this guy tried to say Mjolnir I was ripped out of the story and had to roll my eyes.
The story its self-was really enjoyable, very well written, and gives you a good perspective of the universe.
definitely how writing style. it definitely brings you into the universe
yes, certainly, but not with this recording studio. it sounds as though they dug a random mic out of a box and through him into the first room that had a carpet and said GO! not the best set up, but as the story goes along he gets better, stops pulling away from the mic to yell and trusts in the audio technician.
the way the describe the growing up of the main characters, the reasoning behind all their movements. I love knowing how they think.
try as hard as you can to get at least half way through. if you can do that. the technical aspect gets so much better, know it gets better and better as the books go on, but by the gods i would love it if they redid this audio book in a professional set up.
