    What did you love best about Field of Dishonor?

    it took a break from the naval action of the previous books in the series. it was a change of pace that keeps the formula from getting stale.

    From the Bahamas to Heathrow airport, to the rain soaked streets of London the dead have ceased dying. This is inconvenient for a number of reasons but what's the real reason behind the chaos? In London we find Nigel Reinhardt, a disgraced, confused, and gifted London police constable who owns a prophetic goldfish. In Ireland the Angel of Death questions the value and position of his current employment. At Majestic Technologies Celina McMannis works diligently on a top secret project.

    Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the first 2 books and glad to see that, once again, we were tackling a different kind of story with the same protagonist.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Woken Furies?

    It was nice to get to explore Harlan's World and to have Virginia as a full character, rather than just a memory.


    Would you be willing to try another one of William Dufris’s performances?

    There were some moments, especially with neo-quellist surfers, where I thought to myself "really? that's the read you went with on this line?" It, quite possibly, isn't Dufris fault. Who knows what direction he was getting. Initially the audio effects annoyed me but once I was used to them I thought they were tolerable. There were a lot of moments where I had to stop, go back, and listen again to see if he seriously pronounced a word "that way." Not just for proper names, either. There was a voice about halfway through the 2nd file reminding me to change discs. Throughout the entire novel Dufris pronounces Kovacs with a cks instead of a ch at the end. After how the pronunciation point was made in the first two books that was really grating.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I wish this whole series were movies, so long as michael bay doesn't direct.
