It was,mostly, up until the anticlimactic ending.
The first half.
Wil Wheaton is a great voice actor. I would definitely recommend the other Scalzi books he has narrated, as well as some others. He did an amazing job narrating Ready Player One.
The narrator, the stress of the conflicts, the aliens, the technology
I guess the main character, as this story is in first person
What's the deal with the REVERB added to the narrators voice in this one? It's new and it's ANNOYING. Kinda sounds like the guy is in a bathroom...
The story was great, the voices are excellent. Most of the sound effects are good and in place.
SOME spots had sound effect loops that kept going... For example in part 2 around 50 mins in, some missiles fire at a ship - and a sound effect loop goes on for about 5 minutes or more of lasers and explosions, even when the narrator says "no more missiles appeared to be fired", the effect loop kept going. I actually had to skip a few mins ahead and missed some of the story because I couldn't listen to the story with such out of place effects.
Minimize the sound effects! That's what IMAGINATION is for!
