I am always wary of translated novels but this was first class. Good plot and good characters. Really well played by the narrator, excellent differentiation between characters and pace was also good. Australians won't be put off by the descriptions of Australian life (mainly Sydney) and accents used. Will seek out more by this author.
Never read any of Robert Crais' books before and only bought this because I've had German shepherds for years. Very pleasantly surprised. well written and keeps you interested even though some plot "twists" are predictable. Oh and yes - his writing on shepherds is spot on.
I'd read the book and was initially disappointed with the narrator. He seemed to be too understated, but as time went on, the pace of the story increased and the intensity of the narration kept pace with this. He also dealt well with non-American accents - notoriously difficult.
Reminds me of the short stories/novellas written in the mystery/whodunnit/Ellery Queen magazines. You don't need a sci fi background to enjoy this "who dunnit" (sort of). This series is going from strength to strength in a gentle. no challenging way. Well written
Continues with the human division theme. but like earlier episodes puts a new slant on some characters who are starting to firm up. If you like intelligent, low key sci fi written with humour, good characterisation and very accessible - this is for you.
I don't like to compare Sci Fi writers of different eras, but this is worthy of Pohl and Harrison at their best. Sci with humour is rare, and well written sci fi humour is rarer still. Wil Wheaton does a better job of this than some of his earlier efforts at performing audio.
If "Hollywood vs aliens" with a different slant appeals, then I highly recommend this offering
Good plot and the characters met earlier and beginning to assume stronger personalities. Well up to the standard of earlier episodes.
Great stand alone story that continues the themes set in the human division series. Up to the standard of the great scifi shorts of the 50's and 60s.
Good handling of another in the series. The use of English dialects/accents was very good to differentiate between the characters and to set the tone. Will continue to follow this series.
Turning into one of my favourite authors, I liked this. Just the right length to listen to on a car or train journey. Really liking this series,
