Halo: Fall of Reach
Narration was fine
Needed more combat and less walking and talking. Anticlimactic ending.
After 3 chapters I am giving up. The narrator and the Audible editor have either never listened to the pronunciations from all the previous books in the series... Or were just pathetically lazy!
Almost every name and place is mispronounced. In an audio book series this is a mortal sin.
I will read the book instead.
I highly recommend this book if you are suffering from insomnia. Author must be paid by the word.
First off, The narrator has the most ridiculous cast of female voices I have ever heard (Think Monty Python).
Secondly, Over the years I have really enjoyed the Honorverse series (with a couple of notable exceptions). However, this book reminded me of the incredibly boring War of Honor installment in this saga. Heavy on politics and political meetings, and very light on character development or even much action for that matter. Combine that with half the book being a re-hash of events previously presented in other books and you have a really long dull book.
The author needs an aggressive editor... Or he needs to be paid by the book and not by the word.
Did I mention the huge cliffhanger ending....
Avoid this. I don't think you are missing anything significant in the series.
