First, I will echo some of what was posted in the review titled "Bridges of Madison Space Port." Much of the story is schlocky melodrama that was hard to listen to, and the narrator's performance of male voices was grating.
But scattered throughout the story are morsels of sci-fi action that was quite enjoyable.
The narrator did a great job, except for the male voices. I just don't know what possessed her to try to speak in a lower register. It was completely distracting, and I kept hoping there wouldn't be any male speaking parts because I didn't want to hear her ridiculous impression again.
I'm still on the fence about whether I will continue the series - only because of the narrator. If the rest of the books are narrated without the goofy lowered voice, then I'll probably continue.
I question the reasoning behind creating this audio book. Many of the tips are common sense (who doesn't know how to open a wine bottle?), and most are useless. The trouble is that you cannot easily skip to the tips you like. In written form, you could easily go to the tips that interest you, or revisit them when you want to take that particular task on.
Listening to the tips at a stretch was boring and a waste of time.
This would make a good bathroom book.
The narration was very good.
