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

    The narrator is excellent and the story is addictive (as is the whole trilogy).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Immune?

    When Mark and Heather went to South America to rescue Jennifer and Mark unleashed his full fury.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Hard to say. He did an excellent job with Dr Stevenson's voice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really. Got the adrenaline flowing and had a few very late nights listening.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole series makes and excellent story. One reviewer said it was a bit "Scooby Do" i.e.the 3 teenagers fighting evil forces - yeah I can see that, but it is so much more. One small niggle would be the repetitive use of some adjectives - i.e. lithe. But the bottom line is I could not stop listening to it - I was totally into it. Highly recommend it.

    It was a world gone wrong, one in which manufacturers thought little of manipulating product quality levels in order to save the smallest amounts, where savvy foreign business leaders were made to feel in control while they were taken for a ride by their partners, where entire manufacturing facilities sometimes vanished right into thin air... Welcome to Poorly Made in China!

    Story
    Would you listen to Poorly Made in China again? Why?

    Definitely. I is a great listen and quite breath taking. I seems like an invaluable insight into the physchology of the Chineese business person, and why they will be the authors of their own downfall - eventually.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The mind boggling "strategy" and agenda of the factory owners.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Midler – was your favorite?

    Not really applicable here, but I really felt for importers.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was gob-smacked by the sheer bloody-mindedness and antagonistic positions that these "business partners" adpoted.
