This is one of the best sci-fi books i've downloaded from audible, and i've downloaded dozens.
The author is of a rare breed in sci-fi in that he is able to tell a compelling story about dynamic individuals within the context of a deeply sci-fi background. Most sci-fi authors are pretty bad at character development, and focus mainly on the science part of it. Not so with this guy!
Let me start of by saying that this story is great. The characters and plot are well thought out and are believable. I don't believe I haven't read the book by now.
That being said, the narrator is horrible. He often sounds like he just ran up a flight of steps and is out of breath, and other times he sounds like he's bored or depressed as he sighs while he reads, but the worst thing is all of the pauses. He literally pauses for about a second after each sentence. After you notice it, it becomes hard to concentrate on the story.
I would still recommend downloading and listening to this book because the story is so strong, but I would suggest listening to the audio sample first to get an idea of what you are in for.
