Oh, my yes. It is a perfect introduction to the medium of audiobooks.
Just about any moment when the old lady speaks
The precise articulation of dear foul mouth Chrisjen Avasarala.
I would plan to listen to a couple of chapters each night as I drifted off to sleep... and either a cliff hanging chapter would keep me going for just one more 20 minute dose, or my burst of out-loud laughter at Avasarala's potty mouthed truths leave me chuckling for another half hour. (I am an equally profane old codger...)
Not using Davies as narrator!!!
Have no idea, will be returning it after 1 chapter and buying it in print.
The series is wonderful, the amateurish narration is a crime. I was enchanted by the first 3 and especially by Jefferson May's narration. His Avasarala makes me smile just thinking of her. In fact I had to read V3 (wasn't on Audible soon enough for me) and his creative read remained as my internal voice.
The narration is WORSE than the robo voice of auto reading. Affect-less, no sense of inflection or meaning. Did he even READ the book before narrating. Simply awful.
Really, Audible, truly poor choice to switch voices in mid stream. RE-DO IT w/Mays!!!
