I enjoyed this book so much, I'll probably listen to it at least once a year.
There hasn't been a film yet that honestly follows the book. This story is far better than any of them!
I struggled to finish this book. I don't like writing negative reviews, but this book inspired me to write this review so that others in search of genuinely good fiction might instead avoid an agonizing listen and buyers remorse. This isn't the worst science fiction I've ever read/listened to, but it was far from the best.
This kaiju thriller lacked imagination. It had relatively little to say about kaiju, and wasn't the least bit thrilling. None of the characters were believable. They lacked depth. They were as predictable and juvenile as the plot. The author obviously knows very little about science, aircraft, or firearms, and even less about women. He should probably stick to subject matter of which he is knowledgeable.
I found the narrator's voice nasal, grating, and annoying, like nails on a chalkboard. It may just be a matter of personal preference, but I won't be listening to anymore of his works. Sorry.
I think it would be better suited to young teens and other readers/listeners who are not so well read and have little-to-no basis for comparison. On the other hand, if you've been exposed to truly good literature, then save yourself the agony...find another book.
I really enjoyed the little differences and explanations concerning various historical events and quotes in this alternate reality.
Bronson Pinchot's performance was excellent! His portrayal of each character was distinctive. I couldn't possibly choose just one favorite!
This book needs to be on film! It's destined to become a big budget blockbuster!
This guy sounds so much like Neil deGrasse Tyson, I had to keep reminding myself that it wasn't narrated by the author!
This book should have been narrated by someone with military experience; someone that understands how certain things are pronounced and emphasized in the military.
In spite of the narrator's shortcomings, it was still an interesting listen.
