I'm only a few chapters in but this has been the most difficult to understand of any of my audio books. Is it the narrators diction? Is it his technique? Is it the sound engineers? It just seems that the end of words and sentences just drop off and I find myself having to up the volume to an uncomfortable level to make sure that I'm not missing anything. Make sure you have a sample listen before you purchase to make sure you can tolerate it. I like Jack McDevitt's work just not this narration.
Asides from "A Talent For War" all the other Benedict novels are written from the character Chases perspective. Because they used a male narrator I find this novel harder to follow because I'm not always sure who is talking. They should have tried to get back Jennifer Van Dyck to do the narration and if not her them some other female.
