Due to the very poor narration I do not think this book is enjoyable for anyone who is not already a Sigma Force reader.
Anything not narrated by Christian Baskous.
The narrator has no ability to mimic an Italian or Asian accent. He sounded like a comedian trying to tell a joke about a specific nationality and using stereotypical pronunciations. The previous narrator, Peter Jay Fernandez,was quite good at separating male and female characters voices and providing specific voices for each that were believable. This narrator has no ability to provide individual character voices, not even for male and female characters making it more difficult to follow the story..
The story is in line with the previous Sigma Force series but is definitely running out of steam. Without some new characters and better narration this will probably be my last read for this series. I might not even finish this one.
This chapter of the Zombie Fallout series is as good or better than each of the previous ones. The characters remain interesting and enjoyable while the story continues into a new direction that leaves you craving the next book. Can't wait for Zombie Fallout 8!!!
No. Can someone please explain to me why the narrator is changed in the middle of a successful series. By the third book readers are accustomed to, and, if they are listening to the third book, satisfied with the narration of first two. You get comfortable with the narrators voices and cadence and connect the characters with the narration. As I have previously experienced with the Sigma Force series, the replacement narrator for this series cannot hold a candle to the previous narrator, Guy Williams. The voices are forced and without emotion. The lead character, Eric, is now shallow and almost unrecognizable. If another book is offered I hope that the author and publisher have the sense to go back to Guy Williams and beg him to resume narrating the series and perhaps rerecord this one. It would be an excellent addition to the series if not for the narration.
The first book ended and the second book picked right up as though it was the next page in the book. Surprisingly the action increased with this book while building the character at the same time. The narrator has a fantastic grip on the lead character and really brings him and the story to life. I have listened to both books twice and can't wait for third!
The story follows the lead character from a very personal yet detached perspective that made him and the plot more interesting.
There is a steady rise and fall throughout the book allowing for personal insight squeezed between constant action.
