it's a good series that I have in paper back, but I don't have time to read it. my one gripe about it is that done of the chapters seem to have audio issues. One chapter will be whisper quiet and I'll have to crank up the volume, only to find the next chapter roaring loud and I blow out my ear drums.
Great story, tells all about what took place before Halo: Combat Evolved. Narrator was OK. Problems with change in volume throughout recording with the narrators voice. Overall good though. Great book
Todd McLaren is a fantastic narrator, I wish he did all the books. Halo is a fantastic story that can be built on for ages. The series is well worth the "read". or listen for that matter..
I've read many books based on video games. This, however, is the first book where I've felt that had I not played the games I would have been completely lost. That being said I did like the book. It has alowed me to have a new appreciation for the Halo games. I wasnt the biggest fan of the narrator, only because he didnt differentiate the tone between characters enough.
This fills in all of the back story questions you may have about the beginning of the first Halo game. Who is Master Chief? Who is Captain Keyes? Are there others like Master Chief? The only thing it doesn't address is the Covenant side. This is written from the human perspective. The narrator was good enough not to detract from the story. A must read for any Halo fan. I'm ready to play the first game again!
Thoroughly enjoyed the readers narration, had a strong voice to complement what we already know about the Chief. I read this when I was a kid, and it's still as enjoyable as the first day I read it.
