    (274)

    Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes. In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Marines: Crimson Worlds?

    The narrator's voice is jarring and the tone put me off almost immediately. His diction and the way he reads the book just don't do it for me.


    What was most disappointing about Jay Allan’s story?

    Didn't feel the story was very well fleshed out. There isn't any connection or real character building. The listener/reader will have to put effort into seeing the protagonists views and the main story guidelines. Marines is good for one listen and done.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His tone and involvement in the book were obvious, dull and jarring. The use of electronic voice changers to enhance the story was a cheap ploy to make his rendition better.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Noise for your ears while you do heavy physical labor.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed in this purchase. The sample clip was not a good representation of the narration or story.
