I can see how some people reviewed the book badly. I almost stopped listening after the first crossover between Felix and Jack's perspectives. But it was oddly engaging in language and especially the Felix story line. I have listened to it several times and it accesses a sense of fatalism and futility that is a core element of the modern experience. I think it is a great work - certainly more appealing if you like whatever genre you feel Starship Troopers is in, but having more reach and depth than that book.
I keep going back to sections of it to listen again. It is an excellent retelling - with liberties - of the original story that uses the spoken medium very well. This is not just someone reading the play. I particularly like where they took the witches.
