the story itself was...meh. I usually go through a book every two days but this one has taken me almost a month because the author would basically go into long descriptions and history on miniscule things. I'm expecting the author to go into deep detail on the most minute little things like "The web gear I was wearing was created by Derpy Derp, who was a single male in his 20's, who loved long walks on the beach and always wondered if the barista that made his coffee every day thought aliens would look funny wearing a big Santa Hat." not literally but he would detour from the story to do crap like that. the story itself was pretty good but it could've done without some stuff.
Okay, the story itself was pretty good. I finished it and loved it. Jay nyder did a fantastic job along with Fajer Al-Kaisi and Nick Sullivan. These three made it really enjoyable but Kevin; he completely ruins it. You can tell he's reading from a book and he speaks haltingly. It was like the scene in Billy Madison with the little kid in class "T-T-TODAY JUNIOR!" just minus the "th-the-there wa-was" part. Seriously cannot stand that stuff. I can't believe Audible lets this guy continue to be a narrator and get paid for it.
Needs a new narrator but the story itself was pretty good. It had action, comedy, little dash of romance in it. The narrator though was horrible. This guy needs to take some acting classes and learn to lay off the caffine. He wouldn't change his voice at all for any of the characters and he talked about as fast as an auctioneer that double fisted a espresso. It was highly annoying so I'm returning it.
The story itself was actually pretty good, it had comedy, action, and a little drama but this narrator completely ruined it for me. He would constantly pronounce words wrong and at first, it wasn't so bad but after a few hours into it; I just couldn't stand it anymore. They weren't even complex words either like Daemonolatreia or anything. It would be words such as wafted (he says waf-ted, not wahf-ted.) Also every time the characters think in their head the narrator would like cup his hands around his mouth to try and give it an echo effect which just made it annoying since he does it every 15 minutes or so. If you have the patients of a Saint, then go for it. This is actually a pretty good story but the narrator was just annoying.
Get a new narrator.
The story itself was a little better than decent, I've read better but I've also read waaaay worse. This one I would actually buy the paperback version. It just needs a new narrator because this guy would just read. He wouldn't act like a character when they would use sarcasm, he would just say it. He also pronounced words wrong like Toyota, He says Tyota as in Tea-Ota. I was still able to finish it though but if you don't have a high tolerance for mediocre/bad narrators, Don't waste your time with this book but as I said it wasn't too terrible just needs a better narrator.
This book was definitely worth paying for. It has action/adventure, humor, a little suspense and a dash of drama all wrapped up with a neat little bow. It definitely made it into one of my favorite books. Now I just have to wait for book 2.
The story itself from where I left off, I didn't finish the book, was rather good so far but I couldn't take Scott Sigler's narrating anymore. He would constantly almost cut off what people were saying and one the main characters he tried to give them the voice of Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead and it just pissed me off cause it was horrible. If this book had a new narrator, I would have definitely been able to finish it but I just couldn't take it anymore past the 3 hour mark.
if you are reading this, don't waste your time and money on this audiobook. the story itself; was actually pretty good but the narrator sucked. he mispronounced words, like ancient; he says ankshint. that was not the most annoying thing. the narrator barely ever changes his voice, tone, or has ever heard of timing in between entries in the book. seriously where did you learn to read an audiobook? Cooking school!? i'm getting my money back. if audible seriously pays this guy to narrate audiobooks; i'll re-narrate this book FOR FREE!
Okay, just because the book involves the whole entire planet practically being dead, does NOT mean the narrator has to be dead on the inside too. seriously no emotion in the voice, didn't change her voice AT ALL to different characters so you had no idea who was talking and she would pause for like 10 in between periods which is the way you're NOT supposed to do it. ANYONE WHO IS READING THIS, TURN AWAY! DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY AND TIME ON THIS AUDIOBOOK!
the book was getting pretty good but I just could not fred berman because of his mispronunciation of words like Feral (he says feeral) and they call magazines Clips like an amature that has never used a gun. and the narrator would overact things like ".....& then....HE TIED HIS LEFT BOOT...then his right-AND THEN HE STOOD UP!!!" like ive heard better reading from a script in a porno. please get a new narrator, the story itself was good.
