Sadly the narration was slightly off. hard to explain. A combination of oscilating volume of the narration possibly quality issue or it could have all been the narrator.
Gave me abit of a headache.
I will never ever again purchase a book narrated by Liam Owen.
The narrators attempts at accented English voices made me nauseous. Irritation scaled from annoying for about 70% and the rest was just right out terrible.
As Another Reviewer stated the narrator Mr Liam Owen gets far too enthusiastic in playing up the emotions of the characters. In my own opinion he also portrays them incorrectly.
His portrayal of the main character actually comes of as a person with bipolar disorder.
Due to the narration I also find the main character when working on his memoir's to come off as a silly crybaby instead of a disillusioned, angry, depressed, raging or contemplativ etc soldier and commander of men.
I have given Liam Owen several chances now but damn if hes not getting worse.
Barely "Great story/plot" kept me listening. Never been so Close to returning a book, passed by the skin off the storys nose ;)
Jay Allan needs to work on his characterization's.
In this book the main character feels just slightly off even discounting Liam Owen's portrayal.
Secondery characters are total non entitys and even thou they are referd to by name they could all be referd to as "beep" or some such. So bland where their nearly non existent characterization.
Editing so so could have been better.
If a Audiobook version of Nickelodeon ever existed this book would probably be available for consumption in said hypothesised media.
The narration is so so, sadly the recording seems to suffer from several sound issues. Words cut of mid sound and other glitches that together with the odd pace of the reading can be annoying when considering the accumulation.
Story continues on from the first two "so called" books. I would rather call these books "Parts" 1 2 and 3 of one book. Sad to say they are not Worth the expenditure of a credit each or the cash of purchase seeing as they are so curtailed as to be rediculous.
It is my opinion that Larson's character progression be taking a hard turn for the worse in this installment.
I could have added more to this review, thats if i hadnt spent my time since listening to this insallment on subconciously repressing any and all meandering thaughts on said book. =(
Fly ball for Mr. B. V. Larson. I found myself rather surprised but I hypothesize that Mr Larson be only human. Thus consequently 6 out of 7 homeruns be nay shabby at all at all.
Seeing as the procentages are in favour I feel disposed to wager my happiness on book number 8 in this great series. =D
A good first book. Here's hoping the rest of this series will get even better.
The author starts the series of with alot of room for "more" thank the gods for that.
Many others end up hobbling themselves in book one but this book gave me a more unfetterd feeling upon consideration of the future.
Book no2 just finsihed dl'ing so going to give that a try.
