it was a great recording comma however the actors mispronounced the word hegemon, and instead of just letting it be they redubbed a different voice and imposed it over the original recording at a different volume level it was very jarring. and I was hesitant because of it to give such a high rating. that aside card has made a brilliant story!
Very good, although it seems that they went back and made some sloppy edits to correct the actors' pronounciations of "hegemon." Other than that, it was excellent.

I love SkyBoat, but there were a few slip ups on this one. The story is interesting and the performances were great. But there were A LOT of segments looped in to replace the word Hegemon. Come on guys, it's the title of the book.
The story is well written and mostly well read, but the edits/updates were poorly done. The voices don't match and the edits were only a few words in the middle of a sentence, giving the effect of jarring your focus away from the story and onto the edits themselves. Also, the music was terrible. It would have been much better without music.
One personal pet peeve, the author talks about the character putting another "clip" into their pistol...it's a magazine, not a clip. The slang term is "mag".
yes, overall the production was good
don't know, don't care :-)
The entire series is enjoyable, but these edits and the music are not well done.
OSC delivers another awesome story with both new & familiar characters.
Production of the reading is sub-par. Not sure how this even got released to the public. The good news is that as bad as the production is, it doesn't detract from the story.
kept my attention for the most part and well worth listening to, but not nearly as good as Ender's shadow. It did not have the intelligence, detail and uniqueness of Ender's shadow. all the characters seemed to take on much more traditional, played out rolls, which is the opposite of what made enders Shadow so unique, interesting and unpredictable. it just seemed much more formulaic!
This is a good story, but the narrator apparently pronounced hegemon incorrectly. Instead of fixing it seamlessly, there is an awkward and very noticeable different voice that reads those passages. It is distracting and frustrating to hear.
Really enjoyed this one. It was truly a very different story, a different feel then any of his other books that I've read. I think it is even a great story in and of itself even if a reader had not read the previous books.
