Let me start by saying that I love the light reading, quick tempo and engaging novels by Randy Wayne White. The narrator's use of a monotone, slow tempo voice with almost no variation in character voices made this audiobook unlistenable for me.
Out of the hundres of audiobooks that my wife and I have listended to this ranks near the bottom. The narrator sounds like he is reading the book for the first time as he stumbles through this less than mediocre story. DO NOT waste a credit. Tom Clancy should be ashamed.
I agree with the readers who gave this a poor review. After I started listening to it, I thought it might have been downloaded by one of my kids a s a school assignment. The narration was described by one reader as sophmoric and I could not agree more. The plot development was a complete bore and not engaging at all.
I love sci-fi and could only get through the first hour of this book. The premise is so lame. He has these giant, genetically engineered mastadon creatures manually turning a wheel to create energy in a future that is strapped for energy. I have a hard time believing that that will be the future of our energy problems.
I loved this book when I read it many years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed the audiobook. I only wish there were two more sequels...
Outstanding book and outstanding narrator. One of the best I have ever bought!
