    It is 2041. Mankind has pushed his planet from rapid climate change to the brink of nuclear holocaust. In the midst of the chaos, brilliant young scientists Jon Castel and Levi Clarke discover new data that suggests the situation is far more dire than anyone could have predicted. Soon after, the President forms a task force bent on taking drastic action against the impending doom. Through Jon's leadership, the task force determines that the best possible hope for mankind is to begin colonizing the moon, and eventually, Mars.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Actual voice actors with actual intonation


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Could not get past the first 10 minutes because the reader was so bad


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was completely flat and expressionless


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Warned?

    I can not comment because I stopped listening


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to hundreds of books, this was, without a doubt my biggest disappointment. The subject seemed very interesting. I can not imagine why a person who's art form is writing would think that they are equally adept at performance. In the future leave the actors to the acting.

    Story
    (181)

    After centuries in stasis, a lost task force returns home. Arriving from the infinite void the surviving ships discover that the Imperium lies in ruin. The Homeworld itself is destroyed, and nothing lives in the Ancestral System except an infestation of unknown bipedal beings - creatures soft, red of blood and warm of flesh.... When you colonize a planet, make sure the owners aren't coming back.... MECH is the story of a new Earth colony built upon the ancient Homeworld of a civilization presumed (incorrectly) to be long dead.

    What disappointed you about Mech 1: The Parent?

    I really can not judge the story as I only got one hour into the book. The voice actor was simply terrible. I have heard Mr. Willis on other books, and while he certainly has never been my favorite I really think he "phoned" this one in. I listen to books on my bi 1.5 hour commute (each way) to class and my .5 hour commute to work. His reading bored me so much that I found myself day dreaming about anything but the story.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Some sort of Sci Fi


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story seemed like it had potential, but as I said, I really could not give it a fair shake as I could not listen to it.
