    The first of the acclaimed Vatta's War books, the exciting military science fiction series that features a swashbuckling spaceship-captain heroine who mixes commerce with combat.

    "I really like this book"
    Overall

    I have read the book many times. I like the story and plot and characters and I am a fan of the author but I am having trouble with the reader. Her pseudo haughty delivery plus nasally Midwestern twain that finishes off the words sounds phony. She is reading words not telling a story. The reader hasn’t prepared herself for the reading, her phasing is often wrong or is off just enough to be irritating. I am hoping to overcome my objections to the reader because I would like to get the rest of the series. Maybe as the reader gets into the books her delivery will improve.

    He's the most unlikely hero you'll ever meet, an ordinary guy with a modest job you might never look at twice. But there's so much more to any of us than meets the eye, and that goes triple for Odd Thomas. For Odd lives always between two worlds in the small desert town of Pico Mundo, where the heroic and the harrowing are everyday events. Odd never asked to communicate with the dead, it's something that just happened.

    Bill says: "Great narration, disappointing story"
    "Forever an Oddly Wonderful Listening Experience"
    Overall

    I love the Odd series. I re-read them often and when I cannot sit and read I listen to the recordings. The narrator does an excellent job in separating and animating the characters while his timing and pacing keeps up the tension for a really great listening experience. I have all of the Odd Thomas recordings and I can hardly wait for the next one. A full five stars for the series!
