    As the bloody Human-Covenant War rages on Halo, the fate of humankind may rest with one warrior, the lone SPARTAN survivor of another legendary battle...the desperate, take-no-prisoners struggle that led humanity to Halo: the fall of the planet Reach. Now, brought to life for the first time, here is the full story of that glorious, doomed conflict.

    Joseph says: "Great book and easy listen."
    "If you don't know how to pronounce a word..."

    Story
    Would you listen to Halo again? Why?

    Maybe. Mr McLaren's pronunciation set my teeth on edge so badly that I had a hard time finishing this audiobook.


    What other book might you compare Halo to and why?

    The Fall of Reach is very reminiscent of a number of books by David Drake, most notably the tone and characterizations from the "Hammer's Slammers" series and Redliners.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Todd McLaren?

    Almost anyone. His inflection is excellent, but the pronunciation of even the word "longsword" was irritating. Someone needs to tell him that the "w" is silent. This was one of his less egregious errors.


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

    Not particularly. It wanted to capture the feeling of "Band of Brothers" and "Saving Private Ryan", but wasn't quite there. Not quite enough pathos.
