    Where does Uprising USA rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    upper middle portion, would have been higher with a better narrator, but the story made up for many of the narrators issues


    What other book might you compare Uprising USA to and why?

    Monster Hunter International


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Most of the time, but the narrator felt rushed at times, and he could have paused a moment when transitioning scenes


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh, especially some of the action movie like one liners


    Any additional comments?

    Having read the ebook I was able to really enjoy the audiobook, but the narrators different character voices were some times grating and the his rushed scene transitions get a little annoying but not enough to spoil the experience. I will be listening to this audiobook again in the future.
