The writing style of this story is reminiscent of 60s pulp sci-fi. Characters are two dimensional and the "bad guys" act like cartoonish villains. The story itself is simplistic and there were a lot of times where I thought that it didn't make sense.
Overall I would not recommend this book.
I admit I'm a fan of Peter F. Hamilton. His writing and the worlds he generates are extremely believable. I wish he wrote more books.
Pretty interesting listen, maybe a little gory and shouldn't be given to children. The only real nick picking I can make is that I found it hard to remember the Japanese names as they were very unfamiliar, but thats to be expected in a book translated from another country.
The reader was fine, he sounded Japanese himself which I found added to the stories feel.
Less meaningless internal dialog. More action.
Bad character development, bad writing, story was 90% inner dialog that was terribly written. I'm not American and got tired very quickly of the meaningless empty patriotic and religious overtones permeating this story. But I could have easily over looked this if the story was actually good, but it's so bad it's almost a parody.I have been a member of audible on and off for 5+ years, and am currently a Platinum Member. This is the worst book I have so far downloaded.
performance was adequate.
