    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an entertaining bit of brain candy. There are just enough though provoking points to keep you on your toes without drawing your attention from the story.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Except in one regard, Mr. Glick does a solid workmanlike job of narrating the book. In other words, his presence neither adds nor detracts from the story. I did have one initial problem with Mr. Glick's performance.

    With all due respect, Glick sounds like he's about 15 years old. If this had been one of Heinlein's first person, juvie novels he would have been perfect. As it is, Mr. Glick sounds too young. This was jarring at first, but now that I'm about an hour in, I can say that I've gotten use to it. It still jars on occasion, but its not a major problem.


    Any additional comments?

    Be warned, this is not a single novel, but rather a collection of short stories connected by a framing series of interludes. Over the course of the book, we get to follow Emile as he goes from newly minted officer to experienced hand.
