The narrator used an extremely annoying and fake sounding voice for the main character and her attempts at accents were way short of the mark. I skipped the middle three hours of the narration because I could tolerate no more of it. I have never written a review, even though I listen to books all the time, but this one was so disappointing I felt I must.
This book was fun to listen to. There were flaws in the plotting but it moved right along and as long as you are willing to overlook things like swords and boarding parties in space, it is a good listen. If you like the idea of Hornblower in space you will probably like this.
The fact that the narrator mispronounces automaton, a key word in this book, makes it impossible for me to continue to listen. The story could be great but I will never know. How hard can it be to make sure a word is being said correctly? Especially a word that is used repeatedly, at least in the chapters of this book that I did manage to get through.
