I would give this 4 stars if not for the terrible narrator. Often when someone is narrating a story the character will sound different than we would imagine them if we were reading the book. However, this was different to the point of being painful at times. The female characters were especially bad. The English accents were not good either. Nice try and fun story. With a better narrator would be much better.
It's very suspenseful and dark without attempting to pretty up things. What I mean is there are things happening that could have been sugar coated and drawn out, and Larson simply tosses it out there. It was shocking at times, but worked very well. I like the future tech in it as well.
He is an excellent voice talent that brought the characters to life well. I could easily distinguish characters simply by his tone.
As I understand Larson is a relative newly published author, but have no fear his work is very well written. If you like military sci fi with adventure into the unknowns of space, you will love this.
