A friend suggested I listen to the Prey books, and by chance this is my first one. The story is good, but the dialog is often choppy and feels like a characature of what "real" characters would do and say in this situation. I simply can not take these characters seriously!
Also, the reader is less than impressive. He does try to change his voice to do different characters, but with minor characters especially I find that they sound one way in one part of a scene and then different a little later. He also has killed the pronunciation on several words - so badly that I would not have known what the word was if it were not in context, and at least once referred to a female character as "he". Not to mention, if you listen there is this annoying sound through much of the recording - it could be an echo, but I suspect that someone else was reading something nearby.
All in all, I MAY give Sandford another try based on the strength of the original recommendation I got, but I don't imagine I would ever try this reader again.
