I was expecting lite fluffy funny crap, but it took some unexpected and delightful turns.
Okay maybe not your standard love story and the underlying theme doesn't break the surface until the end. But now thinking back it was there from the start.
Folks, for audiobooks it's not just about the writer, it's also about the narrator...
I wondered how the writer was going to pull this story line off, and I walked away amazed at how he had done so. It's an interesting concept that help portrayed and though at times the explanations were a bit convoluted and even circular, it certainly provided for an entertaining listen. The way he ended the book with the codas was a nice touch - well played.
Our favorite 'ensign' Wheaton was a natural pic for this story and though his range of voices wasn't as good as other stories I have heard him narrate, he did a fine job, nonetheless.
I love any great story, but listen to a lot of scifi, cyberpunk, post-apocalyptic, and young adult fiction. Listener for 2 decades.
I loved the idea of Redshirts, I love scifi, and I love Start Trek. However, this book just kept putting me to sleep. The characters didn't seem to have very good development and something about the narration lulled me off. Good for bedtime though.
I enjoyed the first 95% of this book but I think I'm going to have to listen to the last few chapters again. The author completely lost me at the end.
Either way not a waist of time or credit.
This story is a must if you're a Star trek fan. I couldn't decide if this book was serious or humorous and I think that's a strength of the story, the sheer absurdity! I very much enjoyed this story, I found it very entertaining and thought provoking.
Good listen, took a little bit to get into the real plot, but really interesting premise.
