    Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes. In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The time spent was enjoyable, which is my primary barometer for a good book and the story was good. But the poor narration made listening difficult.


    What other book might you compare Marines: Crimson Worlds to and why?

    Starks War, and B.V. Larson's Star Force series are relatively comparable. But their narration far outperforms this novel.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Bower?

    I think Mark Boyett would have been a better narrator for this novel. His cadence and tone are good for military novels.


    Could you see Marines: Crimson Worlds being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I cant really see this as a movie or TV series.


    Any additional comments?

    I really tried to ignore the narration as much as possible. The most irritating part was that more often than not the narrator makes statements sound like questions. Almost Valley-Girl-esque. He does it everywhere, and seemingly randomly. He also over dramatizes mid sentence which is extremely distracting. Like listening to a valley girl William Shatner overacting a children's story.
