Miguel, may be a genius, however, I'll have to actually read this book in paper or digital format. Patrick Egan's narration was painful for me to listen to. Usually I can find some redeeming value in even the most challenging narrator, but in this case I had to stop listening.
No, I love this genre
Dry, over enunciated, and a bit pompous, are a few adjectives I'd use to describe the narration
Couldn't get past the first narrated chapter. I'll let you know after I read the book.
What more can I say?
Using a narrator that was capable of producing sounds less like fingernails on a chalk board, for a start.
I'd definitely pre-listen, first
All references to the Gamers skill / power rankings. --- very tedious
Warning to all: please preview / listen before purchasing
WHY would they change the narrator? A potentially wonderful continuation of the best Three books I've listened to turned into something awkward, and painful to listen to. A waste of recording effort.
Please --- Please re-produce this audio-book with Roy Dotrice as the narrator.
I'll Read it on Kindle
I was intregued by the idea of the book, but dissapointed by the execution. I expect that a writer should have at least a passing understanding of Dolphin Biology and history, and enough computer knowledge to avoid simple input / output / operation errors and incosistencies.
Plot and character development were weak, to the point that I had to check if I was listening the abridged version. Listening to the narrator proved a challange, as well. While her voice and Brittish accent were delightful, and would have worked perfectly with a Dianna Gabeldon or Patrick O'Brian novel, the accent just did not fit with a story staged primarily in Southern California.
A good idea that could have been a great book with a little more research, and more thorough plot development.
