This is a relatively quick story made quicker by the narrator. I've found that the narrator can really make or break the book and Jeremy Klavens almost blew this one. If I had to give him any advice it would be to slow it down a bit and add a little more expression. I liked the story. I don't expect perfection and this one has its flaws but they are easy to overlook. I would recommend this one.
This is a "Must Read!" Ha-Joon Chang points out some very interesting facts. If it would do any good I would propose that every member of congress read this book.
KK, so I like the book, but call me anal, the narrator kept calling an E-V-A, an eva. Duh! Has this person never watched any NASA TV coverage? I found myself shouting E-V-A by the end. If you can get by that then buy this book! Four stars for the book and two stars for the narrator.
The story may be great, I wouldn't know. After five attempts I still haven't got through the first part. John Lee as a narrator makes me lose all interest. This book just seems to drone on, and on. I won't ever get another book narrated by him.
I gave this book three stars not because there was anything wrong with the story, Kim Harrison has done a superb job with this latest Rachel Morgan tale. The thing I found missing was a decent narrator. Gigi Bermingham was unprepared for this role. She badly mispronounced several of the established character names throughout the story. I found this very annoying and was correcting her out loud by the end. By all means buy this book but be prepared for this unpleasant surprise. My advice for the future, bring back Marguerite Gavin !
