engaging, delightful, brilliant
It was a breathe of fresh air. I am now a huge fan of Kevin T Collins narration and the Liaden Universe. I have read the the books as Audible as listed them and have been fascinated by the universe, the characters and absolutely loved the narration.
Every characters voice is remembered perfectly, I felt he had a extremely strong attention to detail. As a vision impaired person who cannot read paper books and even struggles with a Kindle or iPad on maximum font settings I rely on audio books for my only access point into this great universe. At first I found the pacing quite rapid, but it took maybe 10 minutes to adjust, as it does when starting any new series and I was immediately captivated and held engaged the entire time.
I was impressed by scenes that involved multiple people and how smoothly he switched voices. Fantastic.
Lets just say there where nights I only got 2 or 3 hours sleep because I couldn't stop listening. Normally if I do this with a book I find I fall asleep, but this never happened with these books.
Cannot wait for the Trade Secrets book to be put on Audible which is the sequel to this one (Balance of Trade). Hope Kevin T Collins is able to read it again!
Yes, just a good fun read. It is nice to see someone with a 'super power' that has serious draw backs, where the small details and details are considered.
Matt was the most developed, I look forward to hearing the others if the sequel comes to Audible!
I pretty much did. Until it reached 5am and I just had to go to sleep. Finished it today though!
Highly recommended, I hope more of Michael's books come to Audible so I can listen to them all. I am interested to see if the characters in both his different series 'feel the same' or if they really do feel separate.
Yes. I hope the next two book are as good.
Fantastic narrator. Very very impressed. I especially enjoyed his pacing - some narrators are slightly too slow or too fast. He gives the main characters thought processes a decisive and methodical approach which reflected the main character well.
Excellent action but WITHOUT loads of gore and shock and awe. Sometimes I felt the main character was a little too crazy awesome, but every time I started to think this, a vulnerability to his character would appear. Cannot wait for the next two books - already pre-ordered both!
This was the best narration, with sooo many distinct voices that stayed perfect throughout all three books. I love Monster Hunter series but this is leaps and bounds above those books, totally out of the ballpark by comparison.
The premise had me a bit iffy, but I've fallen in love with it and hope there is another trilogy in the same universe, maybe some prequels or something.
The pacing was excellent, the characters where well detailed, in appearance and how they felt about things as well as their thoughts. The whole way through you are never sure who is going to make it through an encounter - it didn't feel predictable.
Kruger, unsure of spelling as its an audiobook!
His voices, how he remembered and kept them for every book in the Series. Very impressed.
I laughed in quite a few scenes. No tears, there isn't a lot of grief in these books, more determination to survive.
