Absolutely. It is an excellent story and the narration brings the characters vivdly to life.
The complexity and strength of the characters which made it easy to become completely swept away by the story. It also has a lot of the same themes as Special Forces, another, much longer, work by Voinov which is one of my favorite stories.
He brings the characters, especially Sergei, to vivid life.
I love this book! I found it so funny and touching. Bear's mind is a very strange place, and we get long monologues that are roll-on-the-floor funny. The narration is well done, the cadence and speed perfect for the long rambles. I did find it egregious, however, that he pronounced "egregious" wrong every time it appeared. It was jarring, and that's why I gave the narration 4 stars.
I don't want to name names because I don't remember for sure which narrator it was, but the narrator of the Nalini Singh story has the most unpleasant voice it has been my misfortune to hear. I can not imagine how she has established a career as a narrator with such a grating and unpleasant voice. The stories were good, and the other narrators were fine. Just skip the Nalini Singh story.
I really think I would have enjoyed this book more had I read it. I am a great fan of audio books and listen to them all the time, so I know how a narrator can enhance, or detract from, the experience. In this case the narrator did not do the story justice. The narration was flat and he had a very distracting problem with his phrasing. It made it difficult to really become immersed in the story. As for the story, there were a lot of things that were just too implausible and several characters that were just one-dimensional. Not my favorite.

The Emperor. She gave him a wonderful sense of shabby dignity.
No - I like to draw out the enjoyment.
