When I looked at reviews of this book 95% were from guys and rated very high, so I got them for my husband and he loved them as well. When I got around to giving these a try I was not dissappointed. Initially (while in our dimension) they were a little heavy on the military jargon, but once I got past that and they got through the squall, it was great. There is a lot of fighting, but this book wasn't just "guns ablazin'" over MY head military mumbo jumbo I didn't get. I could not wait to find out what happened next. I'm on #3 now and still into it.
The narrator had a very pleasant voice, so pleasant it almost put me to sleep. The story could have been good, indeed I thought it would be, but the author had a tendency to drone on and on about the philosophies of different factions in the book. A real snoozer, and it could have been quite exciting.
They are easy listening and great fun. My husband just loves them and I hear him laughing out loud at them, and I do too. James Marsters does a great job with the narration. We've already downloaded all of his books and will be getting the rest as they come.
I like this story though there were several times the author got a little list happy, to the point I though OMG enough with the lists. I really liked Paul Hecht's voice. It is very pleasing and easy to listen to, however, I didn't like his interpretation of the cadence or flow of the narrative at times. It just seemed a little off and took me most of the book to get used to. I would have given 2 stars for performance his voice hadn't had such a pleasant timbre.
