I first heard "Harry Nile" on XM. My father and I used to have long conversations about how they really captured the feeling of "old time radio programing." The stories are fun and the voice actors are great!! Please Audible post more of these!!!
Imagine Ender Wiggin with a dash of Capt. Malcom Reynolds, coming back from the stars to take control of the Battlestar Galactica and the entire Colonial fleet. I really enjoyed this book, but I'm sucker for military sci-fi. What I liked about it most was the space battles. They seemed eerily realistic with considerations to time lags between light speeds, true fleet logistics, and communications. I also was pleased to see that he did touch on how soldiers and officers would feel like after fighting a war for over a century. The writer, being a Retired naval officer really captures the essence of how it would be during a battles and command. The reader does a good job with the voices and keeps a good pace.
Oh dear, please oh please change the Narrator! It sounds like he's a badly made robot. The cadence is so mechanical, he almost sounds like he's reading stereo instructions.
Changing the narrator on the 13th book? I'll pass. And if the rumors are true that James couldn't do it... then wait until he can. What a real blow to the fans.
I really enjoyed the book. The author does a wonderful job reading her work, however the sound quality is terrible.
I ended up picking up the novel becauce I did not like Paul Michael's voice acting for this book. Some actors or voice actors like James Marsters or Scott Brick truly bring the books to life. But Paul Michael did not. It's too bad, this book is very good.
