There were some memorable characters, and I enjoyed the interactions between the humans and the alien Jao who had conquered Earth. I wondered from the beginning what Preceptor Ronz of the Jao strategy Circle was up to. What opportunity? Can Aille do what? I had my guesses, but the overall goal I had missed completely. Luckily for me, the authors saw fit to wrap it up nicely at the end. The Ekhat were just so alien, and the book did well on depicting them as truly incomprehensible.

No, but will again. He did a good job with the voices, and the reading was paced well.
When the humans said they would miss the Jao Aille if he gave up his life to defend his actions.
I bought this book in paper form after reading the sample chapters on Baen's website -- I just had to finish it! One of my favourite books. Enjoyable read and listen, and looking forward to listening to the sequel.
I had read the book and watched the movie. The book had much more detail and was well-told, but the movie added visual elements, and the play crystallised it into sharper focus. I would recommend all three -- it's fascinating how the different media portray the same tale.
It's not the sort of thing I usually read, watch, or listen to, but a good story well told is always worth my time, and this one made me think about many things -- the way people interact with each other, legal systems, war in general, those who serve in the military, and more.
Just excellent performances all around. Each role was well-played, and I felt as if I was listening to a live broadcast of a real court-martial.
Yes, and I did, except when I had to break to meet some friends for lunch.
