I found the subject matter interesting, drones. I fly RC aircraft and after reading this I started thinking about making my own drone. Hopefully not a killer swarm.
I listened to Jeff Gurner before with Daemon and Freedom also by Daniel Suarez. Initially with Daemon I didn't like some of the voice accents. But they grew on me and I got familiar with them. Now, as I listen to the 3rd book, I like it.
I think its a great book. It would be hard to make it a good movie, where do you start to strip out detail, its all good.
The story wasn't very exciting. It was very linear, you knew what was going to happen every step of the way.
Cold Days, by Jim Butcher
It was just off a little. I didn't like how he read code sequences. I don't think it's his fault he was probably told to read it that way. There was one point he read hex for 3 minutes straight.
The initial story was interesting at first. About the middle of the way I almost quit listening. I finished it but the ending was not like it could have been.
If you want a good tech thriller check out Daemon by Daniel Suarez, it's 100 times better.
