I had read this book when it first came out. I have read all of Tom Wolfe's books and this was and is oneof my favorites. I think the narrator did an outstanding job of catching all the New York accents. I highly reccomend this audio book.
I don't think I could stand to listen to this book again. After the first 6 books were narrated by the terrific Jerry Sciarrio, John Hough was horrible for the seventh book in the series. It's like he doesn't. Understand. How to. Read a. Sentence. I wanted to finish the story, but it was very difficult with this narrator.
Good penultimate chapter of an enjoyable series. It is too bad we probably won't get the last book in the series.
His terrible. Cadence. And. Stilted. Way of. Reading. And. His mispronounced. Words. Just. Terrible.
No, far too long for one sitting.
There is one more book in the Sten series, Book 8 - Empire's End, but don't think I could stand to listen to it if it was read by John Hough. Bring back Jerry Sciarrio, please!
